kalibiliya saidI guess there will not be any disenfranchised minorities attending. So the democrats message is...? Don't come we don't want or need your poor face at the convention, but do vote for us. And don't forget, the Seven-Eleven at the end of the block accepts EBT!
There's a big difference between the right to vote, which is guaranteed to be free of charge, and someone VOLUNTEERING to attend a convention, and accepting the fact that they will have to pay for a hotel room, travel expenses, and food, while they are there.
Any number of Obama haters and gun nuts would love to sneak into the convention hall and cause trouble, up to and including MURDER.
So, it's a good idea to keep everybody safe, by insisting on a photo ID.
