Having a hard time feeling bad about someone who is too lazy/stupid/fucked up to have any sort of ID at al being unable to vote.
Come to think of it, if it were not so flawed in actual practice, a test of cognitive abilities pre-vote would probably be very helpful. If someone cannot handle the processing of say 3 pieces of info into a conclusion within 5 minutes maybe they are too drunk/stupid/dead/ficticious to vote.
I'd like to think my voting is as important as my morning commute. Generally people would take issue with my hoovering down 7 or 8 drinks before driving to work at 117 MPH steering with my knees and without my glasses. They should take issue with me voting in a similar condition as well.
I had a teacher tell me I would not be allowed to vote because I did not have the proper voter ID," Hernandez told WND. "I had my old student ID card which they originally told us would be good for the entire four years we were in school. He said I needed the new ID with the chip in order to vote.
Wow. That's nuts. We had to wear lanyards with our ID's at my highschool and it was the same deal; a lot of kids refused to wear them. I'd feel the same way now, probably even more so; because of the RFID chips.
The irony is probably these same students refusing to be "tracked" go and "check-in" on Facebook 100 times a day, post their location all over Twitter and other websites, etc. These same kids will carry a cell phone with tracking capabilities and even willingly participate in apps that track your location constantly. But at school, they don't want to wear a card with a chip in it because it invades their privacy.
