    Im confused, how difficult would it be for people to get IDs? I mean come on we are giving them away to Illegal Aliens. they cant be tough to get.

    The only people who are going to get denied at elections are those who arent who they claim... Which is probably what Democrats are worried about.

    Exactly, which is what it seems the judge decided also.

    There is no need to give the government any more information than they already possess through the IRS, SSI, and census data. A national ID card is another attempt by the government to gather data on citizens. They should control the illegals with such diligence.

    A driver's license and utility bill would be more than sufficient for voter ID.

    What information could be put on an ID card that the government doesn't already know? They are already listening to your phone calls. (sarcasm)

    Any national id would likely contain chips to prove who you are, the possibilities of info gathering would be the stuff of conspiracy stories. There was a serious attempt at such after 9/11. It was shot down, for cause.

    Now issueing such to illegals that the government wishes to allow to work here, that seems reasonable.

    Sound like mark of the beast type stuff. Except that your state drivers license already carries the information that "proves who you are" in the form of a photo ID. A chip containing the same info would simply be a faster way to process it. Technological advancements aren't exactly abd and can actually help with efficiency problems.

    As I said, the government already has enough ways to process us. I don't wish to give them more.

    One of our grocery store chains is now allowing you to do a thumbprint, electronically and debit/charge your purchases. No thanks. I always 'forget' my card and they just swipe a card so I get the discount. I don't really want all my purchases saved on some stupid data list.
