Top 15 Things That Require You to Show Your ID… What’s Missing from This List Is Ridiculous


Requiring an ID to vote is an idea rising in popularity, particularly among conservatives, intending to reduce the potential for voter fraud. In continuing to fight the war on common sense, the idea has met fierce response from liberal critics who argue that such policies would disenfranchise voters who are apparently incapable of obtaining a photo ID. To show just how absurd the opposition to voter ID is, here’s a list of 15 common items and activities that require a photo ID:

1) Purchase of alcohol

2) Purchase of tobacco

3) Applying for welfare (OK – maybe liberals will oppose this one next)

4) Applying for ObamaCare (and maybe this one too…)

5) Applying for a job

6) Driving, purchasing, or renting a car

7) Purchasing some over- the-counter medicines

8) R-Rated movies

9) Entering most bars

10) Purchasing a gun or applying for a firearm license (ironically, I bet most liberals love this one)

11) Opening a bank account, and occasionally when cashing checks

12) Renting a hotel room

13) Applying for a fishing license

14) Picking up a prescription

15) Donating blood

If we need an ID for all the items and activities listed above, why should showing an ID to vote be any different? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if you need an ID to rent a hotel room, you probably should be required to show ID for more important things, such as picking out the next president.

But, liberal critics charge that this is an effort by conservatives to suppress minority groups from voting. What could be more condescending than to claim that minorities are incapable of obtaining as much as an ID by themselves?

    I Texas they snap a voters picture w/ a number ID that matches the name you signed in with…simple.

  2. Bob says:

    I know Not one person of voting age that does not have an ID…I know many and every one on here will say the same thing. Here the rub w/ Democrates. They are so accustom rounding up people that live in the streets and taking them by bus to even just one polling place, one votes,..goes to the bus, changes clothes(shirt or jacket or hat) while others go in and vote w/ a false ID or in this case no ID at all..goes back in the polls after change of clothes & w/ a different name. How do we stop that? With an ID and picture. Simple. How many people do you know w/o an ID? I know not ONE. This is 2015 people. They know me at my bank of 30yrs by my acct number, but they still want to see my DL Picture. It’s called proto col, and I don’t get my draws in a wad when they ask. ID complaints are brought to us by people who intend on cheating at the polls..always Democrates. They thieves and robbers of our Democracy.

    It’s simple makes it easy for them to cheat same people vote 10 times democratic

  4. Sandra says:

    Every Voter should have to show I.D. They should also stop the Mail-in absentee ballots. Some people are voting absentee and then going to the voter booths. How about the electronic voting machines changing votes?

  5. Pat says:

    It should be required to show an ID to vote. Most people get a DL at 16, and register to vote at 18. It should be mandatory that only American citizens are allowed to vote, not those waiting for citizenship. I had to show my ID and birth certificate to register to vote the first time. I also think it should be mandatory for funeral homes to send a certified copy of a death certificate to that person’s state election board so when dead they can be removed from the voter rolls. Of course, left liberals (They want everything their way or else) don’t have any common sense, are a minority and of course the minority always gets their way.

    1. Marcia says:

      Yep , They are the squeaky wheels for sure, They are always screaming and crying about something, all the crap about equality, as long as the liberals like it, equality goes right out the window if they dont like it.

  6. Richard says:

    Don’t you need ID to register to vote?

  7. Jerry says:

    I have to show my ID when I vote in Ohio and they match my signature from last election what ststes dont require you to show ID to Vote is what I want to know or is this some Political bullshit to stir up some racial bullshit

  8. Sabrina says:

    if you have an issue with presenting ID to vote-then perhaps you do not fit the criteria

  9. Irene says:

  10. Douglas says:
