Bryan Hobcroft - are you serious? You're calling people who may be isolated, poor, and otherwise never needed an ID lazy? Up to 7% of the American population has never needed an ID. Does that mean they can't exercise their MOST IMPORTANT civic duty? No. It does not.
Newsflash: voter suppression is not a new phenomenon. Whether it was a poll tax, a literacy test, "required" questions (ie, "how many angels can fit on the head of a pin?"), America has a long history of trying to stop certain groups of people from voting. Even the former Chief Justice William Rehnquist was apart of a tactic called Operation Eagle Eye, where he would intimidate blacks and hispanics as they waited to vote. It's an ugly truth, but there it is.
Now, I have a question for you: are you a Republican? If you are, how can you not be ashamed of your party? Because if Romney wins this election by suppressing votes, guess what, he didn't REALLY win the presidency, now did he? No. He stole it.
Shame on you.
