One thing I'd like to get rid of is this nonsense of the expired ID.
What pain in the ass this is. Look, that's still my fingerprints, that's still my face, that's still my SSN STFU p with your expired license crap.
It's an unnecessary hassle and a money grab by various state agencies.
Look, you're already required 2 change your address if you move. That's the Law already on the books.
And, for driving you? Sure, I support some sort of expiry date. But the problem is, the system we have right now is bullshiit. There should be an expiry date at 60 and five years every step after that.
But as far as the day-to-day stuff that requires some sort of photo ID? You should be issued one at whatever age and it's good for life.
For example, in this age of uber, there are far and far fewer drivers. Somebody shouldn't be precluded from flying to see their sick family member because their driver's license is 2 months expired. And sure as hell, the one that really pisses me off? Don't preclude people from going into bars when you know perfectly well that you have proof of age right there. The birthday hasn't changed for fucksake. Neither have the biometrics nor the photo.
I think this would solve a lot of problems. Problem is? Once you let your driver's license lapse, it takes ID to get ID. Usually at least two or three different pieces of ID. so it's not as simple as running down to the DMV and getting a new one. But I fully support that there should be a lifetime card and a requirement to show that life time card when you vote.
And while we're at it kids? We're pretty much the only country that has the SSN. Especially as this magic number that controls everything from birth. Especially our credit laws are particularly effed-up compared to other countries. But that's a whole nother thread.
In college I gave my expired ID to a friend tat was 20 so he could go into bars. Other than his hair he looked nothing like me. It worked for him every time. So you can remember when to vote just not when to renew your driver's license? Just renew your focking ID if you want to vote.
