OK, but if we’re going to do it the way that “many other places in the world” does it, then we need to have a national ID card system just as “many other places in the world” have. A system where everybody has a card, and nobody is inconvenienced by the need to get one. And that can never happen in this country without shrieks of “Big Brother!” from people like you.

Of course, that would defeat the purpose of photo ID laws, wouldn’t it? The whole purpose of these laws is to disenfranchise certain groups of people. And everybody knows that’s why Republicans champion these laws. It’s the only way they can win.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
