I mentioned somewhere here before about Republican efforts to disenfranchise thousands of voters come this election via various "voter ID legislation" being promoted across the nation; promoted "almost exclusively" by Republican lawmakers, according to the article below: NBC Politics - In legislatures and courtrooms, busy weeks ahead for voter ID Personally, I have no beef with laws requiring the showing of a driver's license or similar id for the purposes of voting. I have done so for a number of recent elections. The devil, apparently, is in the details, because, according to opponents of the legislation, obtaining the required id would be a difficulty, inconvenience, and/or expense primarily to voters likely to vote Democrat, and therefore would result in significant numbers of such voters being unable to vote. My take? Don't get caught up in the "trick bag" and allow someone, for whatever reason, to deny you your right to vote. Go out and get those ID's. Bring the WHOLE frekin' family, and a neighbor or two. And while you're at it, get 'em registered to vote, if they aren't.
