It amazes me, tbh, how reasonable, intelligent people can suddenly become raving lunatics when it suits them politically.
"ID Please", once a routine and basic validation of identity or qualification, now akin to Nazi's asking you if you want o wear a red cap or a yellow cap to your forthcoming "shower".
It makes debate, real debate, impossible frankly. When even the idea of a basic ID check, literally THE most basic form of validation of identity available, is viewed as a racist evil nazi conspiracy to stop black people from voting....
You say "thats one".
I say we have no idea how many it is, because we not even doing basic checking.
Lets meet in the middle, and do a whole election with 100% ID Checks. If attempted voter fraud is small enough, under 1%, maybe I could see your side.
If we never check, we'll never know. And I am amazed anyone could be ok with not knowing such an important thing as this.
I don't equate them at all - one solves the problem, or at least puts such a hurdle up that you can all but guarantee that the incidents of fraud would be effectively zero. The other doesn't. Seriously, when we're trying to stop terrorists from boarding a plane, news journalists get past trained security with fake ID, you think Ed and Myrtle Costello from down the road are going to stop fraud by checking ID if it is as rampant as you suppose?
You're on. One election - if it's even .1%, I'll get SAR's wife and Palmetto to cover the RFID implants. :p
But whatever the number, I bet it's null and void, basically equal parts for both sides.
