    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    I'm all for it. Let's establish a national voting ID and make it compulsory. All Americans need to get one otherwise they can't vote. Let's see how many "TOO MUCH GOVERNMENT" Conservatives will start complaining 3 days after it is implemented.

    You might want to re-read what it says. It's not talking about the actual Presidential election, but about signatures that were needed for Obama and Clinton (when Clinton was a factor way back when) to get on the state ballot.

    The alleged forgeries have raised the question whether the Obama campaign actually filed the necessary number of signatures, 500 from the county, to get on the state's primary ballot. The 534 signatures that were certified to place Obama's name in contention, were never challenged. 704 signatures were certified for Clinton, according to state elections officials. An estimated 150 of the signatures on both petitions may be fakes, leaving open the possibility that, in at least President Obama's case, the number of legal signatures that were required to get on the ballot was not reached.
    Now I suppose that might have thrown the election. Don't really know. Was Indiana a swing state? Did he have to get on that ballot in order to run for presidency?

    Re: Photo ID to vote?

    Can someone give me some examples of important things in the US that don't require photo ID's? Social Security Benefits start out using photo id's, and even then we hear stories of people collecting long after they're dead because updates aren't made. Medicaid requires them. Hospital treatment (after initial emergency treatment) requires them - from the patient or whoever is with them. Driving. Purchase of alcohol, cigarettes, or porn. Joining the military. Selling real estate. I can't think of much that doesn't require a picture ID or the items that are required to obtain a picture ID (essentially the same). Meaning, to get a picture ID, I may need to show a birth certificate and SS Card, etc. so if I can show the birth certificate and SS Card, then I may not need to show a picture ID.

    It amazes me that computers haven't made voter fraud impossible yet - I think someone must want to allow it to be possible.

    Does it not seem rational that citizens our our great country should be able to prove that they are citizens? And, that others should be able to rely on that proof? It should be a right of our citizens to have an ID, and they should have a right to an expectation that others can't easily duplicate it.
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    Your list is faulty and in error.

    My wife recently applied for and started getting Social Security. At no time did she submit or was asked for a photo ID of any kind.

    I recently was in the hospital for some tests and they never asked for a photo ID.

    I buy adult beverages and I am never asked for a photo ID.

    Which does nothing to negate my three corrections to the list from Greenville.

    The hospital did not ask for photo ID.
    Places which sell adult beverages have signs which state "WE CHECK ALL ID". They do not.
    It matter not what you think Social Security should ask for, the fact is that they do not ask for photo ID.

    Three strikes and Greenville is out.
