“If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID”

Trump: “If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture on a card, you need ID”

You can see how he is truly a man of the people!

Trump even manages to screw up positions that I agree with. How does he even come up with this stuff? I, like Trump, don’t use any alcohol, and therefore have never been asked for a picture ID at a grocery store (or anywhere else, for that matter, unless verifying for a stranger that I am the person whose name is on a credit card).

  1. Granted, it’s been a few years since I had a student ID. But none of those ID’s (even the one from this century) were what I would call “secure.” When I was in college back in the last century, they stopped putting ages on college IDs because it was too easy to fake them and use them to buy alcohol (I started college just after the age to buy alcohol went to 21 in NY).

    The idea isn’t to make getting an acceptable ID burdensome, it’s too make it burdensome to vote illegally.

  2. Ok, Voter ID laws are fine. But how easy is it get ID and what forms of ID are acceptable?

    Where is the nearest government office and what are its hours? Does your voting district even have an office at all?

    What forms of ID are acceptable? Of 14 states with strict voting ID laws, 5 of those do not allow student ID’s and some of the remainder have some restrictions on what can be used.

    Its not just about a voter ID requirement. Its sometimes followed up by additional burdens intended to getting that ID.
