University ID's are intrinsically useless off campus.



Doesn't necessarily hold true.

For example

Quote:

You no longer need ATM cards, credit cards or cash: just your Miami University ID card. By depositing dollars into MUBucks, students can use their Miami One Card to make purchases at a variety of off-campus establishments. It is an easy and convenient way to provide your student with the money they need while in college!

This is totally false as was brought up earlier many of them can be loaded with money and used like a debit card know this holds true in Davis think it held true in UF. Also I have previously shown they are perfectly acceptable to get a job. They are also acceptable if you need to provide identity to use a check or credit card. In fact they are basically accepted for everything an ID would be used for except for things which need age verification.

Students Put Party Differences Aside in Voter ID Battle. Will NH Legislature Follow Suit?

The battle to keep student IDs as an acceptable form of voter ID in New Hampshire has united students from both political parties. Young Democrat and Republican leaders have cosigned a letter to New Hampshire state senators urging them to alter their current course of action and explicitly list student IDs for private and state colleges as acceptable forms of voter ID.

The Senate Public and Municipal Affairs Committee recently passed an amendment to HB 595 that excludes student IDs from the list of acceptable voter ID. HB 595 would stop implementation of phase two of the ID law, which will eliminate college student IDs from the list of acceptable voter IDs if the legislature does not act. The committee amendment guts HB 595, which passed the House, by keeping college student IDs and other documents that were allowed in 2012 off of the list of acceptable documents that can be used at the polls in future elections.

It's not clear what the source of that quotation is, but the university specifically limits its debit card to on-campus on its Web page:

Why hassle with cash when you have MUlaa? The MUlaa account makes on-campus spending a breeze for students and parents. MUlaa is a debit account available to all current faculty, staff, and students. It can be used for a wide variety of purchases. Everyone has a MUlaa account, all you need to do to use it is deposit money into the account and use your Miami ID. Money in the MUlaa account is non-refundable and non-transferable.

That helps explain the explosion of identity theft.

As I mentioned earlier, we need more cross-checks in addition reasonable voter ID laws:

"A crosscheck of voter rolls in Virginia and Maryland turned up 44,000 people registered in both states, a vote-integrity group reported Wednesday."

"In the case of Maryland and Virginia, he revealed that 164 people voted in both states during the 2012 election."

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/04/23/over-40000-voters-are-registered-in-both-virginia-and-maryland-group-finds/

Looks like 164 potential voter fraud cases to me...

Not necessarily They may have voted Democratic in one state and Republican in the other. No harm, no foul.

Don't even fool yourself either way thinking these things are decided on merit. They're done to us and not for us. Since debate is futile, I block thread again which was already blocked.

No need for one vote per person, right?

Vote early; vote often!!!
