Here are a few of the things to do which one is required to present an I.D.:
*buy an alcoholic beverage
*open a bank account
*apply for a job
*rent a car
*board an airplane
*adopt a pet
*rent a hotel room
*apply for a fishing license
*Buy a cell phone
*visit a casino
*pick up a prescription
*buy an ‘M’ rated video game/enter an ‘R’ rated movie
*purchase certain cold medications
*(for a period of time a couple of years ago) purchase nail polish remover from a certain national drug store chain
*write out a check in almost any store to buy almost anything
So, if you want a job, wife, cat, hotel room, fishing license, or cell phone you are S.O.L. if you can’t hand over a valid I.D. Similarly, if you want to play the slot machines or a ‘mature’ video game you’ll need to show an I.D. Moreover, if you are a model citizen selflessly attempting to help out your fellow citizens by donating your own blood…you’ll need an I.D. If you were a youthful lady wanting to buy nail polish remover from a CVS pharmacy circa August 2013, you would have needed an I.D.
If you go to a grocery store and attempt to buy a loaf of bread and a bag of beef jerky- or whatever- and wish to pay with a check…you’ll most likely need an I.D.
To vote for the president of the United States of America, the lone individual with the most power to influence economic, environmental, political and military policy around the world, however, no I.D. is necessary!
If we are going to rein in fraud and corruption, regain our electoral integrity, elect leaders with America’s best interest at heart, reaffirm our founding documents and assure friends and enemies alike that our elected leaders have the strength of legitimacy, we must require I.D.s. of voters.
