The moderate-conservative Republican blogger in Louisiana writes: "Infiltration from without and cultural rot from within have produced endless series of photo ID justifications. If you ask me if I agree with this new reality I'd have to say, 'No.' If you ask me again as a patriot will I comply with today's identification mania to preserve the integrity of the ballot; public safety and homeland security my answer becomes 'Yes' faster than questioners can ask! As an adult who was born free, unlike immediate family, my duty is to assist my Republic as a citizen of the present, doing my part to master today's challenges. Today's challenges include confirming identity for a host of reasons. Where racism or narrow partisanship can be proven in state policy, it must be exposed and punished. In the absence of either, my duty to my beloved, precious America is to support whatever will keep her ballot valid; her streets safe and her commonwealth unharmed by foreign aggression. 'ID me baby!' I, like every other good American, have nothing to hide. But I dearly miss the freedom of unencumbered mobility we once enjoyed."
