See, idealistically I would support ID requirement, but because of situations like the one Cafe has described I would never press for it. In an idealistic world where we would have ID requirements for voting, we would also have low-cost, clean, efficient and wide-reaching public transportation, low-cost safe childcare programs, and other measures to make things more equal and fair for everyone regardless of their starting circumstances.
Yeah, exactly. They're good in theory but when you look at them in terms of what's actually going on in real life, they're really nothing but another hurdle to the already disenfranchised. It'd be money and time much better spent elsewhere.Originally Posted by Coriolis
