Some are federal, but most are state laws or activities where I live. 1. Boarding an airplane 2. Writing a check 3. Cashing a check 4. Using a credit card 5. Driving a motor vehicle 6. Applying for a business license 7. Applying for permission to hold a protest or rally 8. Securing employment 9. Purchasing a house or real estate 10. Renting a domicile 11. Renting a motor vehicle 12. Purchasing a firearm (Includes BB guns) 13. Applying for a hunting license (waived for 16 and 17 year olds when their legal guardian provides a photo ID) 14. Applying for a fishing license (waived for 16 and 17 year olds when their legal guardian provides a photo ID) 15. Purchasing alcoholic beverages 16. Purchasing tobacco or products that contain nicotine 17. Purchasing a motor vehicle 18. Initial registration of a motor vehicle 19. Applying for a building permit 20. Receiving prescription medicine 21. Purchasing OTC medicine that contains pseudoephedrine 22. Serving on jury duty 23. Getting a bank account 24. Cash transactions of $5000.00 or greater 25. Sales tax exemption for people aged 80 and above Of the above, numbers 2, 3 and 4 are not state law but at a business owners discretion. By law, they can demand it. Numbers 15, 16 and 25 are usually applied using common sense, as in if you appear to be too young the business can demand proof and refuse to engage in the activity if one cannot provide proof of the required age law. All of the above are things that occur on a daily basis but not necessarily to everybody. Despite the above common actions that people engage in, some seem to think that asking for a photo ID for voting purposes is somehow a violation of civil liberties or an attempt to prevent people from voting. The really interesting part is that it is usually liberals claiming that it is conservatives attempting to prevent people from voting when a photo ID law would apply equally to both liberals and conservatives. Heck, they would apply equally regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, weight, sexual orientation, income, health, disability, race, wealth, intelligence, marital status, attractiveness, employment status and everything else. Is there something wrong with preventing the dead, the illegal aliens, the young (under the age of suffrage) and other non-qualified people from voting just as we prevent them from engaging in the activities listed above?
