Jenn has posted on the need for Voter ID reform.
I agree we need to tighten up our voting system, but that should not include giving more power to the Government to force us to carry and present our papers.
The pursuit of Liberty should be driving us away from answers that can be offered by Government, and toward answers among ourselves that are founded on common sense. There are ways to secure the franchise without showing a state-issued ID. How about finger dye? How about a retina scanner that ding-ding-dings if the same eye tries to vote twice? (The retina need not be tied to any other identifier). Those are just two potential solutions - one is old-school, one new-tech.
Liberty will only be found at the furthest distance from Government.
Here's the post.
