Bams should create a new government agency composed of minorities and maybe even some of the people who are out of work....if they can force those bums back into working..... and have this agency canvas the country with equipment for issuing photo ids. They could get census info and say make sure that everyone over 65 can either go to the dmv for their photo id or let the dmv folks.... this new special government cluster****agency come to their home or place in the park or bridge where they live and issue them a brand spanking new photo id.

They do too believe in voter ID! You have to show one 3 times to get in to their convention to vote to nominate Obama!

I agree it should not have to be an up-to-date I.D. Man I.D. has gotten expensive--driver's licenses and passports are expensive. Why should an 87-year-old be forced to go get a DL renewed or his passport renewed on his $850/month social security income? But the Mexican Matricular card or whatever the heck it is should not be accepted even if it is current. If you present this as I.D., chances are you aren't even a citizen of the United States.

Hey, that's a great idea. What would you call the legal and current I.D.? The "Under the Bridge" I.D.?

Here's one for you corny. It is in keeping with the same theme of your existing avatar. I saw it in the Seattle Post Intelligencer when I was riding in the back of the bus on my way to work in 1998. In the past 14 years, nothing has changed.

Everyone has a photo ID.
There is nobody legal who does not have a photo ID. You might find some example of a toothless moon-shining grandmother in rural Tennessee, But basically. EVERYONE has a photo ID. The topic is not worthy of debate nor discussion.
Voter ID is simply a small measure to keep our electoral process honest. Any opposition to that is obviously corruption.

The problem with voter ID's is that it is hard to get an ID for the dead people the Dems have signed up to vote. Even harder still is to get IDs for the dead animals that the Democratic Party has been sending filled out voter registration forms to. (no I am not making this up, people have been getting filled-in voter registrations with their deceased dogs' names already written in.)
Recently on Sean Hannity (I think) he had a black Republican and a white Democrat on arguing some issues. The Democrat mentioned that if the Tea Party wanted to be taken seriously, they need to stop pushing the voter ID thing because it keeps minorities out of the voting booth. The black Republican was shocked and appalled and pointed out that this comment is extremely racist. She said that black people don't have a problem producing IDs when they are getting on flights, buying liquor or cigarettes, etc. so what makes you think they would have a problem showing them at the polls. She then said, If you think white people are the only ones capable of getting ids, and black people aren't, that is an extremely prejudiced thing to say. -- No response from the democrat.

Poor people will have a hard time. It's the "current" part of the I.D. that is the problem. Sure, I have I.D., but it isn't current. I couldn't get on an airplane now. It used to be OK to have an expired passport for the I-9 form when applying for a job, but with E-verify now it has to be current. I.D. is expensive. When I get a little money, the last thing on the budget is paying off my $150 red light ticket so I can spend another $40 to get a driver's license. Passports are $110. I agree with the democrats on this one. This is republican elitism. If they really wanted to stop massive voter fraud, which of course if a good thing, they should start with cracking down on states that allow illegal Mexicans to get driver's licenses. Because these guys can show I.D. all day long and their vote is still illegal.

Last time I got a non-DL identification card from the DMV in Florida it was $5. They could give them away for free and come to your house to issue it and democrats would still have a problem with it. Not because there is a legitimate reason, but because the party line has been established and anything else is ideologically infeasible.
Democrats are prepared to allow illegal aliens and multiple votes from individuals because they know that those illegal and otherwise invalid votes will benefit their party over the party that insists on honesty and legitimacy in the process.
What would the democrat response be to a law that puts "ineligible to vote" in big red letters on drivers licenses issued to illegal aliens in states like WA? Does that insult or alienate them? Would it hurt their feeeeeelings? I'd really hurt their feelings by deporting them straight from the drivers license when they apply.

My license was issued in 2000 and expires in 2050. How long is yours good for? Here, a new ID is $12 never expires and a replacement can be mailed to you for $4. And yes, they should crack down on illegal licenses, which they do in my state (AZ) and every once in a while you hear about them finding someone at the DMV issuing licenses to illegals.
And I am wondering, should they drop the ID requirements for employment, buying alcohol, and buying cigarettes? Seems the same people that would have a hard time showing ID at a booth would have a hard time showing ID for those things. Don't poor people have just as much of a right to buy a six pack as everyone else?
