Though I'm not.
As far as I'm concerned, any legitimate reason for NOT having a Voter ID Law can be overcome with free ID's.
Everyone should have access to a gov't provided picture ID.
Everyone should be required to show a gov't provided picture ID at certain times... of which voting is one of them.
What percentage of people who claim they can't get ID's drink alcohol? Ever?
How did they obtain said alcohol without a picture ID?
Certainly now that they are 40+ they aren't "carded"... but I bet a lot drank when they were younger.
How do these poor people access state provided housing or food stamps? I am assuming anyone too poor to pay for an ID is on the public dole... no? How do we know they're not on the dole multiple times? if they have no ID they could be collecting benefits under 5 different names with no ID for each name.
They idea that you can vote or have access to any gov't provided free shit without an ID is ludicrous.
