[QUOTE=piney;4396433]where at all did I personally mention minorities?[/quote]
The entire basis of the Anti-ID Check argument in the wider world is that it places an undue burden on minorities, i.e. is a form of minority voter supression.
So no, not a strawman at all. It is the core of the side you are defending, your specific support of it or not.
Unlike that said, I have more than enough faith in ALL Americans, majority or minority, to meet the basic burden of aquiring a free State-Issued ID if they wish to express their right to vote.

Nor is it ours to do yours.
You make a laughably illogical claim that "voter fraud doeasn;t exist" while simultaiously defending a system seemingly designed to permit voter fraud by not performing a basic first-level confirmation check of voter identification.
Nor, apparently, can you see the problem that relying on "investigations of reported fraud" is laughably inefficient, given that no ID's are being checked int he first place, meaning those who would report such fraud are inherantly lacking the basic first-level tool they'd need to be able to prove (and hence report) that fruad.

The only thing in this issue that doesn;t pass a basic smell test, is a claim that showing ID when voting is any form of undue burden.
