REQUIRED PHOTO ID A HARDSHIP? Left wing Congresswoman from S.C. on Rachael Maddow show; Getting to the DMV is a hardship for seniors and disabled and photo ID requirement to vote will disenfranchise minorities from voting If it is a hardship for them to get to the DMV, it is also a hardship for them to get to the polls. "25% of Afro-Americans do not have photo ID?" BS. There is not an elderly, student or poor minority or drunk or crack head that do not have a photo ID and if they dont they should not have the right to vote. To get food from the food bank you need a photo ID such as US passport, US Military ID or dependent card, Native American Tribal document, Mexican or Canadian ID (consulate issued photo ID) Veterans Administration Photo card, school ID. Photo ID is opposed by the left because it stops fraud. There is no excuse for anyone over the age of 18 in the country not to have a photo ID. The requirement of a birth certificate to start school, to get a drivers license, get a job and cash a check, to get welfare and food stamps, etc, to get Social Security Card and cash your Society Security checks. A Social Security card is not used for identification and never has been. Any illegal alien can produce a Social Security card and vote. Any one who does not have a photo ID is a complete idiot. I feel naked without my picture ID on my person at all time when I leave home. A photo ID is as close as your nearest DMV. If you do not have a birth certificate you can get a certificate of birth. No excuse not to have a photo ID. Social Security ID used to vote open up massive voter fraud.
