It seems that every four years the democrats get all steamed up over showing a picture I.D. like its some new thing. Citizens of the United States have been asked to show an I.D. and picture I.D.'s since I can remember. Here are some instances where I have personally been asked for an I.D.
When I applied for my social security card
When I went to get my first drivers license at age 16
Going back and forth across the Mexican border I have had to show a picture I.D. Preferably my drivers license
The last time I renewed my drivers license I had to show 5 (FIVE) forms of I.D. with at least one of them being a picture I.D., and my drivers license couldn't be used as one of the five. Now, that time I sweated a little, but luckily for me I had an old college picture ID, a military dependent picture ID, birth certificate, baptismal certificate, marriage license and credit cards.
When I get stopped at a road block the nice Policeman asks for my drivers license
When I go for tests or procedures at a hospital they ask for a photo I.D.
When I show up to vote everyone is standing in line with their photo I.D.'s in hand waiting to show them to the person who has the big book that we have to sign.
When I have a doctors appointment they ask to see my drivers license or a photo I.D.
When I get pulled over by a police officer because I'm out at 2 a.m. and they just want to know what I'm doing out that late, they ask for my drivers license.
When I go to my bank, write a check and withdraw my own money, they ask for a photo ID
When I present my Debit or Credit Card at a motel, they ask to see my drivers license.
I don't do these, but:
When you buy tobacco they ask for your drivers license or a photo ID
When you buy liquor they ask for a photo ID (if you're lucky :)
When you go to a Club that serves alcohol they ask to see your photo ID
So, what's the big deal about showing a photo ID? They required everyone entering the Democratic National Convention to show a photo ID, so if they had to do it just to hear speeches and watch entertainment, what's the big deal about showing a photo ID to prove who you are to vote? It seems that we have to show photo ID's for everything else that we do, so why not to cast a vote?
