Voter ID Amendment

Whats your take on Voter ID?

I was thinking about all the reasons we currently need an id, driving a car, opening a bank account (sometimes using existing account), credit card use, alcohol-tobacco-cold medicine purchases, social security, medicare, medicaid, disability distribution, check verification, pre-employment verifications, title transfers, vehicle tab renewals, marriage license, police requests (non driving), hunting/fishing license, doctor visits, pharmacy prescriptions/refills,  and many other places are now verifying individuals identities via photo ids like hospitals during late visitation times.

I am thinking that regardless of the voter id amendment, society would function easier if anybody had some sort of id be it drivers license or government issued.

Ok, lets get to why the Voter ID Amendment is a bad idea. It is not because the elderly will have a harder time to vote, they have multiple id's to offer. The poor will be left out of the process? No, if you receive government benefits, you have shown id. Is the cost of ID greater then the savings society receives?

I also understand murder is a crime that happens everyday forlesser reasons then a political agenda, so I miss your point? 1 fraud vote cancels 1 legitimate vote, thats the true math. As for the rules Read the 14th amendment of the constitution, citizens of the United States have the rights to vote. Nobody is changing the rules its the same 14th amendment, I would argue an illegal fraudulent vote is going against the rules to win an election. Great discussion, multiple viewpoints..

If you faked the ID, you didnt follow the current rules (like acorn), thus the need to make sure the rules are followed.

I was wondering how much it cost to put together all the stuff for kid voting and why the left is not opposed to that cost yet are so opposed to the minimal cost to verify actual voters via ID.
