    at every job that i've accepted, i have been required to bring my birth certificate and a Social Security card. i don't understand why my SS card wouldn't be acceptable identification at my polling place. if republicans aren't satisfied with the current card, then an acceptable compromise would be to raise the SS ceiling and to use some of the additional revenue to fund a social security card which includes a photo.

    Telling staffers to keep quiet about the IDs will improve the performance of the intent of the new ID. The guy should be rewarded and may have been by his team.

    You're required to provide your SS card because they have to know what account to credit with the money they withhold. It's not identification, it's tax information.

    What's wrong with just having another card with your picture on it? Besides, you don't exactly want to be flashing your SS# to people, it leads to identity theft.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What is your evidence and reasoning?

    Cause it will mainly affect minority voters, and minority voters are usually Democrats?

    I really don't care either way. I think a library card should be efficient enough. I never really understood the argument that voter id was keeping people from voting. It happens in all white majority Republican towns also.
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Assuming that the library card had a picture and the requirements for getting such a card were stringent enough, I could see it being a legal form of identification.

    John, does your library card have your picture on it, name, and any other identifiable information (address, date of birth, etc.)? Mine does not. It is just a number and a picture of my library.

    The only identifiable portion on mine is my signature, it doesn't even have a name printed on it. To get it, I only had to produce a piece of mail with my name on it, I don't think I even had to produce a picture ID.

    Your social security card specifically states on the card that it is not a form of ID. The reason why your utility bill works in some states is because of name, address, and provides some time frame for residency.
