There is no reason to oppose voter ID laws unless you intend to preserve your ability to commit voter fraud.
You cannot present a single reason why every person choosing to vote should not have a state issued, or otherwise verifiable, identification card with a picture which is required to be presented prior to practicing one of the most important acts imaginable in a Democratic Republic.
Not a single reason.
I must present picture ID to enter a bar.
I must present picture ID to rent a car.
I must present picture ID to get a hotel room.
I must present picture ID to fly in an airplane.
I must present picture ID when in every other country. (And they do not allow me to vote in their elections.)
I must present picture ID to purchase a home.
I must present picture ID to open a savings account.
I must present picture ID when pulled over for speeding.
I must present picture ID to get a job.
But… to “legally” screw up your life with my vote by electing idiots?
I can be anybody, and everybody, with no proof necessary… even dead… and vote.
The process of free and honest elections is a Pillar of Freedom.
If you vote for, or support the appointment of, these horrible people who want to preserve their right to cheat, you need to admit to yourself that you are also a horrible person. (We already know it.)

Bunch of racists.
Mike, what you are forgetting about is that minorities are much stupider than white people. They don’t have the intelligence required to get a photo ID.

That’s what’s so fascinating about this issue. It’s exactly racism that must be embraced in order to make the argument that minorities are not capable of securing ID with which to prove who they are in order to vote.
