exactly why you dont get it. If you cant afford to go to a DMV to get a license (which costs $50) plus transportation plus they are only open during normal working hours... you SHOULD NOT be prevented from voting. Driving is a privilege, voting IS A RIGHT.
Sorry but most of those are not rights, they are privileges. Buy alcohol, drive a car, fly on a airplane are not RIGHTS. The others are RIGHTS but do NOT require IDs. I can legally buy a gun from you in my state with no ID or background check. The supreme court ruled you do NOT need a permit to protest lawfully.
You seem to be confusing privileges with rights.
Most people who don't have a license DO have a state government issued photo ID card, or else, how could they cash their paychecks?
Seems to me if you're working "normal" hours, you probably aren't poor. Most of your service industry workers and factory rats (who I'm guessing you're referring to as not being able to afford to miss work) don't work 9-5.
BTW, I don't know where YOU live, but in Michigan, it only costs $25 for a license, and ID cards are $10. Plus, the Secretary of State (we don't have a DMV) branch offices stay open until 5 p.m. on most weekdays, until 9 p.m. one day of the week, and they even have Saturday hours.
I can't imagine too many states being less accommodating to their citizens than Michigan by having such restrictive hours as you claim. I'm also guessing that state government issued ID cards cost less than licenses in most other states.
One would expect in a nation of 330,000,000 persons to find a few dead people on voter registries because it is rather difficult to remove a voter from the rolls unless they ask to be removed (eg they move or die). Even if all 4 million dead people were to vote (a mere 1.2% of the total population), what says they would all vote for the Democratic candidate?
Meanwhile in reality, a 2012 investigation found a grand total of zero dead people voting in South Carolina in that year's election:
James O'Keefe... James O'Keefe... where have I heard that name before...
Oh I remember he's the guy who does "exposés" and had to pay out $100,000 to settle a court case in California over invasion of privacy and later got arrested in Louisiana on federal traspassing charges. Real charmer that one. Even Glen Beck thinks he's an asshole:
Let me rephrase: even Glen Beck says O'Keefe is a liar.
Beck actually endorsed Cruz during the primary and continued supporting him afterwards until Cruz endorsed Trump, a move Beck considered calculating and a betrayal of true conservatism. For what it's worth I think Beck's assessment is correct; I also think Cruz's move was correct.
I really do feel badly for many Republican party members from moderate or swing districts who have to make the decision to either support Trump and gain his voters but alienate moderates; or not support him and lose the conservative base while gaining support among moderates & even progressives. Cruz, being from Texas, had an easier political calculation even if it means supporting a man who personally insulted his wife (Cruz may have brought that one on himself), his father, and himself.
I'm not defending Clinton, merely pointing out Trump's BS. But by all means, hate on a "nasty woman" if it makes you feel better about yourself. Meanwhile in reality, polling data shows the only way Trump can win is if the election is rigged... against Clinton. I'm having a great day sir, as hope you are as well :)
