Luc's "Athletic Aesthetic" Volume One Column


A True Voter ID For All

So the latest attempt at a voter ID law in Wisconsin has been struck down.  Good.  Too many would be burdened-enough that they will not be able to vote under that law.  Accepting that this was the wrong approach -- and with me fully believing that ID is not necessary for any problem with fraud, since fraud is nearly non-existant -- I ask about a third option:  a free voter ID card issued to all residents.

If your concern is with people impersonating others to vote multiple times, an actual "voter ID card" takes care of that problem.  However, being free and issued upon registering to vote, it guarantees that all residents of Wisconsin have a card provided with the least number of obstacles possible.  No one should have to pay to vote, and obtaining a driver's license or displaying a birth certificate cost money for those who either never drive or come from background where obtaining such a certificate is near-impossible.  Essentially requiring someone to pay to be able to vote is truly un-American.  A free voter ID card gets around that problem.

If your concern is a college student voting in multiple states or cities, simply require that once the card is issued, their home address is informed of their registration.  Should be a simple task.

Voter fraud is so minimal as to be a non-factor in swinging elections in Wisconsin and nationwide -- this is a classic "solution in search of a problem."  IDs are unnecessary based on the data.  And, Republicans have pushed voter ID primarily because it will help their party;  one would suspect that most who would have difficulty obtaining proper ID under the struck-down law would vote Democratic, and in a 50-50 state, that effect could swing elections.  True, Democrats pushing for additional early voting hours, expanded registration and no ID-needed likely realize such policies help their party get elected, as well, but this is a case where one party's opinions match what is morally right.

Yet, for those genuinely concerned that voter fraud could happen, who want to protect the sacred opportunity we have to vote -- a valid point -- the third option of a free, state-issued voter ID card addresses those concerns.  Other problems could come up -- what if one loses their card, the inveitable forgeries of such cards -- but this is a non-partisan way to ensure both a fair vote and a fair opportunity to vote.

Any problems?

    Ten minutes later, I felt almost installed, and finally the computer stand, then went to the living room, the color of a person sitting at the kitchen table rice is very quiet eating something. I stretch a little body and sat down across from her, north face clearance then picked up a little too blunt Crab Bag eat. M color rarely some initiative said to me: "Just the way a lot of people to make a snowman in the street. " "Ah. " I'm still very deep to be a cry. "Is it? " "Yes. " north face jackets clearance Rice color should be a cry, looking somewhat haggard snow had stopped outside the window. I instantly knew that her loneliness, the reason why the kids had a good time, because there are to accompany their parents, guarding them, and rice color it? Perhaps she also had snow in a happy memory, clearance north face jackets but the memory of this life, but because the pain can no longer be copied. Experience with rice color regret, I accelerated the speed.

    When michael kors outlet online sale Mowbray jordan shoes had left his nike air max dangerous adviser, michael kors outlet in christian louboutin outlet order to steer the course which his agent had indicated, without offering to nike outlet recommend it, he went to polo ralph lauren outlet the replica watches little parlour which his nfl jerseys sister was wont to lacoste pas cher term her own, and in which she spent true religion outlet great part of her time. It was fitted up vans pas cher with a sort of fanciful instyler ionic styler neatness; and in its perfect arrangement and michael kors outlet online good order, formed a strong links of london uk contrast to vans the other jimmy choo shoes apartments timberland pas cher of sac vanessa bruno the old and neglected mansion-house. A number gucci of little articles lay on supra shoes the nike blazer pas cher work-table, kate spade outlet indicating the elegant, and, at longchamp the same time, the unsettled pandora uk turn of the inhabitant’s mind. There were hollister unfinished wedding dresses drawings, blotted music, scarpe hogan needlework of various ray ban sunglasses kinds, and many other little female tasks; all undertaken oakley sunglasses with nike roshe zeal, and so far prosecuted with art and elegance, soccer shoes but all guess pas cher flung aside before any one of them was completed.

    Clara herself sat upon a gucci handbags little low couch by the nike air max window, reading, new balance outlet or at least turning over the giuseppe zanotti leaves of a book, in which kate spade outlet online she michael kors seemed to michael kors canada read. cheap oakley sunglasses But lululemon outlet online instantly starting up longchamp when converse shoes she converse saw chanel handbags her brother, she ran towards him with the most cordial cheerfulness.

    “Welcome, welcome, my dear John; this is sac lancel very kind longchamp outlet of you to come to visit your nike air force recluse longchamp pas cher sister. I toms outlet have chi flat iron been north face jackets trying swarovski uk to nike air max nail true religion outlet my eyes new balance pas cher and my understanding ray ban uk to a stupid coach outlet book here, juicy couture outlet because they christian louboutin shoes say too much thought ralph lauren uk is not quite good ralph lauren pas cher for me. But, nike roshe run either the man’s dulness, or lululemon outlet my want of the power of attending, makes my eyes red bottom shoes pass over reebok shoes the page, just as one seems coach outlet store online to read in a dream, without being able to ray ban outlet comprehend one word of timberland boots the oakley pas cher matter. You shall talk to me, celine handbags and that will longchamp handbags do oakley better. What can I nike free give you to show that you hollister are welcome? I am mcm handbags afraid tea is all ray ban pas cher I have to offer, and that you set north face too little store by.”

    “I shall be glad of a cup at present,” said Mowbray, “for I michael kors outlet online wish to mont blanc pens speak nike trainers with you.”

    “Then Jessy shall make it michael kors handbags ready tn pas cher instantly,” said Miss Mowbray, abercrombie ringing, and giving louboutin orders to tiffany and co her soccer jerseys waiting-maid burberry outlet online —“but you must not vans outlet be ungrateful, John, and plague michael kors outlet store me with true religion jeans any of the ceremonial coach outlet for your fête —‘sufficient beats headphones for baseball bats the day is true religion the evil ferragamo shoes thereof.’ I will ray ban attend, air max and play karen millen my part as prettily hollister clothing store as abercrombie and fitch you p90x workout can desire; birkin bag but to think of it beforehand, tory burch outlet online would make north face jackets both wedding dress my head and my heart ache; and so I mac cosmetics beg herve leger you will spare me iphone 6 case on babyliss the subject.”

    “Why, louboutin you wild kitten,” mulberry uk said Mowbray, north face pas cher “you turn every day more shy of burberry pas cher human communication — we shall prada handbags have hollister uk you take thomas sabo uk the woods nike air max one ralph lauren day, and become as hermes pas cher savage asics shoes as polo ralph lauren the Princess tiffany jewelry Caraboo. swarovski jewelry But nike roshe I prada outlet will plague you valentino shoes about nike free nothing juicy couture if coach outlet I can help replica watches it. If air max pas cher matters go not hollister canada smooth on coach purses the great day, montre femme they must e’en burberry outlet online blame the longchamp outlet online dull thick head that had no fair pandora charms lady converse pas cher to help him in his need. michael kors uk But, Clara, air max I had something christian louboutin more insanity workout material abercrombie and fitch to bottega veneta say to ghd you — something indeed nike air huarache of the last importance.”

    “What is it?” said Clara, in a tone of voice approaching to a air jordan scream —“in the name pandora jewelry of God, what is it? You marc jacobs handbags know nike free pas cher not oakley vault how you nike air max terrify me!”
