    I don't see him implying that he tried such a thing. Think you're reading more into what he is saying than is there.

    But not everyone is going to use that ten dollars to buy a id, they are more focused on survival.

    Maybe. If so, I apologize. Certain forums here have achieved a fabeled status I suppose. I generally avoid them.

    Even discounting economic obstacles (which we shouldn't, but I can't wait for the bumper crop of lemonade stands for the ID drive) ... Money is not the only obstacle.

    I don't understand the pushback here.

    You want people to have to prove who they say they are at the polls. Fine. I'm OK with that. Now, how do they do that? With an ID. What does an ID cost? Money.

    Are you saying that those who may not be able to afford an ID should not be allowed to vote? Because if you are, then you are advocating a poll tax. Which is unconstitutional.

    The fallacy amongst conservatives is that liberals don't WANT people to have to prove who they are. The vast, vast, vast majority of liberals have no problem with people proving who they are at the polls, as long as the ability to do so is available to all, regardless of economic standing.
    That last is a chimera libs trot out and wave around like it means something. The fact of life is that if you're so poor you can't afford a $10 ID it's likely you don't live anywhere near the polling place and can't afford to get there. You also can't cash any social support checks or get permanent public housing. Oh, and did I mention, every state's DMV offers free IDs to those who fall below a certain poverty level. In short, you are an illusion, non-existent.

    What? I didn't say anything about you in that post.

    And:

    A new state law requires residents to show photo identification to vote. Balthazor does not have a driver's license — a physical disability prevents her from driving — and so needed to find another way to prove her identity.

    The law includes a clause that allows residents to get a state photo ID card for free if they need it to vote.

    In which case they're not concerned with voting and won't be.

    Age range, have to be restrict, too.

    Qualified democracy might look like:
    Male citizen who has attained 27 years old, but has not attained 76, who served in the army of the country, having a family and children, immovable property (real estate) and paying taxes, has the right to choose the government of his country.
    And parasites, never.

    Lemonade is just one of many ways. Kids find ways to make money all the time. Why can't adults? As for obstacles, the only other one would be not having a BC. That was already addressed.
