The Week in ID Checks

Posted: Jul 13, 2012 10:41 AM

Welcome to the first "The Week in ID Checks." Each Friday from now until the election, I will be keeping track of where and how many times I am asked to present government issued photo identification during the week as Attorney General Eric Holder continues his quest to squash Voter ID laws across the country. Now, I am well aware the argument that the following activities are not constitutional rights will be made (voting is a right), but the point is, when I am asked to present photo identification it is simply because I am required to prove who I say I am. Should voting be any different considering it is more important? Nope. Not to mention, this project will be an example of how any American cannot efficiently function or do basic everyday things without government issued identification.
