The argument: can't attach a cost to the right to vote and an ID can cost a walloping $30 every four years
The solution: IDs in states that enact voter ID laws have made acquiring one free if necessary
The argument: driving to the DMV to acquire an ID will cost gas or bus fare
The solution: you can do the whole process by mail
The argument: postage has a cost, it's not fair
The solution: I'll bet the return envelopes have prepaid postage marks on them
The argument: the sick and bed ridden can't even do mail
The solution: any service needed will be provided to make this happen
The argument: it's racist and suppressing
Counter argument: really? Only people of color are poor and incapable of acquiring something simple like an ID? That sounds racist to me. An ID is required for every government benefit they apply for and get. They need one to cash the government check. They need one to buy liquor and cigarettes. An ID is just part of modern life no matter what you're situation. Yet to cast a vote is an extremely important country direction depending decision and to hell with proving who you are? Wow!
The argument: you hate black people and women and don't want them to vote. You're racist!
Counter argument: The only racism I see is in that you don't think these people have the slightest ability to obtain such a simple thing. You must think they're all lazy and stupid. Every effort and solution is available to make the process of obtaining an ID effortless and free if needed. So the argument is null.
