I would like to honestly see the legitimate argument against voter ID laws. Who, over 18, Doesn't have a form of picture ID?
You have to have ID to smoke and drink, or drive. These three things I'm pretty sure encompass 98% of all Americans over the age of 18.
So please, explain to me who's being disenfranchised here other than illegal immigrants and/or voter fraud perpetrators.
And not blanket statements, real cases that make sense.
Elderly people have ID else they would not be able to apply for any social programs. Hell, I'd even take a valid Social Security Card.
I lived in AZ for 4 years, Yuma to be more exact. This is one of the "snow bird" capitals of the world.
Guess what all of the elderly people had there - driver's licenses.
And the argument "now they have to take a bus to the DMV"... if we're that worried about those poor old soles making it to the DMV, why do we not let
them VOTE from home? At a permanent address on file for that person?
The only people who complain about Voter ID laws are those who benefit from voter fraud.
