    It's never about free IDs.

    Republican majorities specifically seek IDs that minorities & college students do not use, with the intention of disenfranchising them.

    "The most infamous of this https://www.washingtonpost.com/news...ranchise-black-voters/?utm_term=.0e272635c9b5

    One of the most comprehensive studies on the subject found only 31 individual cases of voter impersonation out of more than 1 billion votes cast in the United States since the year 2000. Researchers have found that reports of voter fraud are roughly as common as reports of alien abduction.

    The federal court in Richmond found that the primary purpose of North Carolina's wasn't to stop voter fraud, but rather to disenfranchise minority voters. The judges found that the provisions "target African Americans with almost surgical precision."

    [7 papers, 4 government inquiries, 2 news investigations and 1 court ruling proving voter fraud is mostly a myth]

    In particular, the court found that North Carolina lawmakers requested data on racial differences in voting behaviors in the state. "This data showed that African Americans disproportionately lacked the most common kind of photo ID, those issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)," the judges wrote.

    So the legislators made it so that the only acceptable forms of voter identification were the ones disproportionately used by white people. "With race data in hand, the legislature amended the bill to exclude many of the alternative photo IDs used by African Americans," the judges wrote. "The bill retained only the kinds of IDs that white North Carolinians were more likely to possess.""

    This is done by Republican legislators shamelessly to tilt things on top of flagrant gerrymandering to stay in power. It's partisanship run amok, to make sure things never tilt the other way.

    Kind of flies in the face of your fantasy of free photo ids for voting. After all, if they were really that worried about voter fraud so much, why not suggest free ids for voting?

    But hey, that's your 'party of Lincoln' for you. o_O

    What about coastal guns? If not by land, immigrants will come by sea. Looks like 200 people drowned recently off the coast of Libya... (link). :(

    I was just going to suggest something similar, but I take it a bit farther. Just make the wall one big memorial wall and start selling plots to pay for it. Solves two problems at the same time! :D

    We know it's real. It's just a dispute as to the quantity.
