Def: A political belief in which primary emphasis is placed on securing the freedom of the individual by limiting the power of the state. In its economic form, it advocates a respect for private property and free markets.
Classical Liberalism was the ideology of the moderate, constitutional monarch phase of the French Revolution, which promoted limited government and was based on principles of natural law.
Prior to the 20th century, classical liberalism was the dominant political philosophy in the United States. It was the political philosophy of Thomas Jefferson and the signers of the Declaration of Independence and it permeates the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers and many other documents produced by the people who created the American system of government. Many of the emancipationists who opposed slavery were essentially classical liberals, as were the suffragettes, who fought for equal rights for women.

I think this is more of a matter of constitutionality. Is there something within the constitution that say you are required to have a government-issued ID to vote, travel, or anything else of the sort?
We have to look there before we decide it's a left-right issue.
But the constitution doesn't say anything about driver's licences, passports, college ids
That's a silly thought to look at the constitution to declare if it's a left-right issue.
I am confused by the switched mentality but believe that liberals have it wrong here in the long run.
What would be the cheapest, most efficient way to issue voter ID?
