    There is no substantial argument as to why you shouldn't have to show an id to vote. I can't believe that we have gotten to a point where this is even an issue.

    It's racist. That's the ONLY reason a photo ID isn't REQUIRED to vote.

    Ok, I guess I can see the argument. Can you get a free government ID in OK? I'm guessing any ID card is going to cost something, right?

    So if you need that ID card to vote - and you had to PAY for that ID card - then yeah, I guess I can see it's a poll tax of sorts.

    But the practical application is that most folks have a drivers license and the cost isn't prohibitive per se, right?

    And look at the fraud potential of not requiring an ID at the poling place.

    So the poll tax argument was kinda like the NPR discussion I heard today on dress codes in public schools. Someone said bras are uncomfortable and expensive and that's why a dress code requiring females to wear bras was discriminatory...:wacko:

    You need ID for just about everything except voting. Makes perfect sense.:doh:
