Let's give the liberals an inch in this argument. Let's agree that it is a hardship to acquire valid ID. My question is not "Why do you oppose showing ID to vote?" My question is "Why don't you push for measures that would help these people legally obtain valid ID?" Having a valid ID would not only allow them to vote (once registered), but to also to rent an apartment, obtain a job, get a library card, and open a bank account. I had to show state-issued picture ID for all of these things.
