There has been no shortage of attention to programs in various states to establish voter ID requirements, and the nefarious purpose of those requirements. But has there been any attention to how those ID’s will be used after the elections?
The paranoid cynic in me says that the proponents of these requirements anticipate using these requirements to limit services to those who don’t have ID’s. But I find it hard to give them credit for the ability to think past any immediate purpose. It’s not the way their minds work. So I don’t think they have anticipated this.
But after the elections are past and ID requirements are in place one doesn’t need to be paranoid or a prophet to know that they will look for ways to use them to the detriment of those who don’t have them.
