The mentality of people about government spying and police arrests and detention of people for what they say has to change. There are too many americans saying things like ” if you aren’t doing wrong, there’s no harm ” or ” If they say it’s for my protection it’s OK if i lose a few rights”. To me this sort of mentality is defeatist, and illogical. The government has abused every power they have been given without exception. The government has a historical record of attempting to control the people to maintain the power they have, and have gone out of their way to acquire more power than they need.
Photo ID’s at the polls is unconstitutional, and serves only one purpose. To keep the poor from voting. The laws are unconstitutional as they put undue burden upon the voter, as well as attempt to circumvent the voter taxation amendment. While they are not in and of themselves a direct taxation. They do cost the voter time, and money.
Some states charge for documentation such as Photo ID’s, Birth Certificates, and Social Security Cards. The latter two being required in most states to even get a photo ID.
