Voter ID laws are worse than fraudulent

In case anyone needs to be convinced that the rash of Voter ID laws that have sprung up are, as so many have said, “Solutions in search of a problem”, consider this. In several countries, notably Australia and New Zealand, voting is considered a civic duty. This is reinforced by the fact that anyone eligible to vote who fails to do so must pay a fine, the equivalent of a parking or traffic ticket.

Now why can’t that be the attitude in the United States? Never mind; I think we already know the answer to that one.
