Yes, it will soon
Yes, but in a few years
Out of 151 votes. Results based on votes submitted by members of XBIZ.net social network.
I just read an editorial analysis by AVN’s Mark Kernes that claimed there was a Supreme Court ruling that upheld Indiana’s demand that voters prove who they are by means of showing a state-issued driver’s license – and I’m compelled to comment on his observations.

While I won’t go into nearly the same depth of analysis that Kernes did as he bemoaned the burden that having an ID will impose on the lower orders, and thus cost the democrats the upcoming election, I really must ask what has become of common sense in America?

Kernes piece cites statistics that indicate that poor people, who tend to be democrats, don’t have driver’s licenses or other forms of ID; to which I have to ask: then how do they get jobs? It’s my understanding that documentation of identity is required for employment – or at least it always has been for me.

Oh wait, the poor don’t have jobs, is that what you’ll reply? Then how do they cash their welfare or social security checks? I always have to show ID when I try to cash a check…

If you can’t bother to acquire one of the most basic requirements of functioning in today’s modern society – a valid, state-issued identification – then what qualifies you to be able to cast an intelligent vote for the leader of the free world?

I’m all for empowering the masses, but there is a societal obligation that accompanies this empowerment – unless you’re in favor of mass voter fraud, which is an historical hallmark of democratic election strategy.

“Vote early and vote often” isn’t a joke, it’s a common practice, and requiring proof of ID is the only way to lessen this problem that eats away at the heart of democracy itself.

But then again, if we required that citizens prove who they are before voting then the party of desperation would lose out on the millions of votes that they hope illegal aliens will be casting in their favor come November.

Business owners, including legitimate purveyors of adult entertainment, realize that the Republican Party stands for lower taxes and smaller, less-intrusive government – but regardless of whom you vote for or the party they represent, you should have to prove your eligibility to do so!
