    Understood, see my post #28. I stated that because people are already identified nationally, it's not like it would be a new or different thing.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If it's about disenfranchising voters, why are they giving FREE IDs to people who say they can't afford an ID?

    We're already giving free money to most of those so-called disenfranchised voters, how about we throw an extra $5 in everyone's check and they can go get an ID?

    Do you have a source for that?

    Here is my source some Republicans who did the exact opposite and told staffers to keep quiet about FREE IDs.

    This is so you can vote in more than one place during a national election?

    Are you sure? There were many civil liberties objections when DHS was approaching (and not yet arriving in) that territory.

    That's real easy. The guy should be fired.

    Against. It only addresses one kind of vote fraud, one that amounts to a laughably small percentage of fraud much less votes cast.

    What about absentee ballots, who's checking those IDs? Oh, nobody...there you go.

    Who says you can do that with a national ID? Do you know what a national ID is?
