    And why are you against it if the SS card is invalid? They're giving free photo IDs to people who claim they can't afford it, so what's the problem? There is no excuse for anyone not to have a photo ID.
    because if they're giving out free photo IDs, then they should just put a photo on the SS card.

    Ok I have no clue what you are talking about. So could you please clarify the details you seem to know something here. ANd I am not going to guess what it is.

    I'm for it if we make it into a national ID card.

    We've got one now -- a Social Security card and number. But those who got them as national policy aren't yet old enough to vote.

    No. I want a national ID that can be used to vote.

    If someone cannot get an ID then they are like one step away from not managing to get food; thus, they probably have more important things to worry about anyway.

    The SS card specifically says that it is not ID. It is a reference number. Maybe SS cards should be upgraded so that they do serve as ID but just a name and number is not enough to prove who you are.

    A SS card is not an ID card, and is not meant to be used as ID. A driver's license or passport, on the other hand, are IDs, and are meant to identify the person who possesses them. SS cards are not meant to identify anyone.

    I agree with you, but there isn't enough demonstrable evidence to make people who are pretending stop pretending. For me, the facts that the voter fraud problem is grossly exaggerated by Republicans, that the main people who will be affected by voter ID requirements are liberal constituents and comments made by some Republican party leaders on the ID is enough to make it clear to me that this is more about disenfranchising voters than it is about anything honorable.
