It floors me that you can't buy cigarettes or alcohol, you can't board a plane or cash a check without a photo ID, but you can vote without one. What floors me even more is that Dems fight tooth and nail against such common sense legislation.
"...The eyebrow-raising news is that every Democratic senator opposed what would appear to be a no-brainer of an idea. . . . A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll last month found that 80% of Americans favored a requirement that photo ID be shown at the polls, with only 7% opposed. Nonetheless, every Democratic senator lined up in opposition -- a clear a sign that the interest groups that support Democrats must feel threatened by the idea of ballot security."
