Isn't it Ironic?
Listening to a report tonight on the Iraqi elections, it struck me that it appears that voter identification is very important there. They want to make sure that someone has the right to vote, doesn't vote twice, and is registered in the precinct at which they appear. Hmmmm. Makes me wonder if we could do something like that in the USA. No one ever asks for my ID at a precinct, nor is it verified. As long as I show up, am the right sex, and have the correct address, I'm in! The few states that pass laws on voter ID are denigrated as racist. Yet, a country that we are helping, has voter ID, and purple ink as the "enforcer."
