My friends and I have compiled a short list of what you need to show a photo ID card to do certain things. They are, but not restricted to: (1) getting a job; (2) opening a bank account; (3) boarding an aircraft; (4) buying cigarettes; (5) buying liquor; (6) cashing a check; (7) getting medical tests done at an outside lab; (8) entering certain federal office buildings; (9) entering a military installation; (10) paying for a purchase with a check; (11) registering an automobile; (12) signing a rental agreement for an apartment; 13) getting a motel/hotel room; (14) purchasing a firearm; (15) in certain when you purchase ammunition; (16) drive a car; and the list goes on and on.
In short, if one does not have a photo ID, I do not believe it's possible to be engaged in contemporary American society. You'd have to be so far under the radar, that you are literally off the grid and living as a recluse. The assertion that voter ID laws will disenfranchise American citizens is so lame that anyone making that assertion should be examined for being psychologically disabled.
Now if someone is actually loving that far off the grid as to not have a Photo ID and not doing any of the aforementioned common practices, then I would say that voting is not even registering with them and that it is a moot point.
I've used this argument in discussing voter ID with the few liberals I know, and when confronted with the list of what you need, they are usually left dumbfounded and unable to continue supporting their side of the discussion.
So why do liberals continue to use the lame excuse of disenfranchising voters? Because they need to continue supporting voter fraud to win elections.

The last time I was at Walmart I had to show a photo id. Apparently if the purchases are over a certain dollar amount they ask for a photo id. My wife works at Fort Hood in Texas, each and every time I see her at work I must show a photo ID to get on base. She works in a secure area and to get to that area I must also show a photo id and give them that id to hold until I return to the security area. In return they give me a visitors pass. Last week when driving from El Paso to my home near Austin I had to show a photo id to the Border Patrol check station near El Paso. My friend with me is from England, he had to show his passport. Every time I fly I must show a photo id.
Question: Why is Mr Holder not telling all the above business and government agencies that they are discriminating against those without a photo id?
