GOP backed voter ID laws are out and out voter suppression.

In order to ostensibly avoid an imaginary blow to democracy they want to deal a real one and then claim moral superiority.

They are quite, quite mad.

Zarquon's Flat Tire: You know, my grandmother never had a driver's license, but she had a state ID card (in SC). I just don't see how someone could live in this country without an ID.

Hell every time I vote I forget ID is not required and pull it out anyway. Not saying I support voter ID laws, I just don't see how it can really be THAT big of an inconvenience.

I'm also the biggest bleeding-heart in my family.

When it comes down to it, the ID is a poll tax. Some states have said they will provide IDs for free to get around the poll tax accusations, but then the people who need to procure a birth certificate to get the free ID are still paying a fee to vote. Sure, it may be hard to imagine going through life without those forms of ID, but it does happen to people of all ages. It is simply a greater burden for the poor and homeless.

What's the count on this anyway? The number of recent historical examples of vote fraud that these I.D. laws would have prevented? Zero? Are we still at zero?

And the number of people who can't get I.D. at all or without significant hardship is greater than zero still?

Basic arithmetic says this is vote suppression. As usual, math proves republicans are immoral liars.
