Hell, Don, I remember when they didn't even put your picture on your license......how times have changed (for the worse)...
I think (but check as I am not sure) that one had to be a property owner and of the age of majority in order to vote back then.
Originally, the thought was similar - people who were itinerants of temporary residents or whatever were not deemed to have a permanent stake in the nation.
People have been calling for a national ID for a while now. For *all* people.
I wonder whether Australia has a national ID/tracking system...
Oh Don, stop confusing the issue with the facts. You and Gruhn and 3D Peruna just *insist* upon doing that! How un-American of y'all.
Oh Don, don't you realize that these days, the term "individual" is merely a metaphor? Get with modern politics!
One would think. Same as right to vote. You have to register to vote in each state you move to. Just as you have to get a new driver's license each time you move from one state to another.
Ah yes, whining - the path to power of the "terrible twos" - pretty disgusting that, these days, it remains so right through adulthood and to old age...
