    Requiring an ID is not restricting it.

    Once you make it a requirement, the next process is how to ensure everyone has one/can get one.....

    One does not preclude the other.

    Seriously?

    Ok fine, you need an ID to work, drive, go to school, get into a government secured building, buy a car, buy a house, buy a goddamn scooter, buy a gun, hunt, fish, drive a boat, fly a plane etc,

    I can keep going if you need to....but are you freaking serious?

    Again, focuse on the message, not the hyperbole.
    So say those things instead of saying something stupid.
    Trump: "Our plan is to keep the American people safe."

    Pelosi: "That's not a plan. That's a goal."

    With so many options to choose from where ID is needed, it's weird someone picks a thing you don't need a license for, right?

    License and ID are different things, you realize that right?

    Link

    He has got to be the stupidest leader in the world.

    Other lies included statements that you don't need ID to vote anywhere in the country (not true) and that he granted permits to an LNG company that other administrations had refused (Obama issued the permits).

    No one does fake news better than Donald.
    In some cases, not all, if you apply for SNAP (food stamps) you will need an ID. some stores will want to see an ID when you pay using a snap card (or a cc or debt card). So while it true you don't NEED an ID to buy groceries. You do need ID to apply for government (like snap) programs, open a bank account, or get a PO box along with many other things.

    Try buying groceries with a check and no ID and see what happens.
    Cardinal: Yes. If I’m wrong, then for one month I’ll make my signature “SLC was right and I was wrong” and link to the bet in this thread. If I’m right then for one month you’ll make your signature “Cardinal was right and I was wrong” and link to the bet in this thread. Game? SLC: Absolutely

    I don't use checks, like the majority of Americans, so no I will not see what happens.
