TO CHRIS Vicente:
I am one of the idiots, as described in your letter, who is opposed to the voter ID bill.
You should change your mind and join in opposing the bill because it undermines our sense of trust and community.
When registered voters complete their ballot, they are fulfilling their communal obligation to participate directly in the process of government. When they sign their name in the voter registry, they are affirming that they are exercising their rights as a community member and stepping up to the responsibilities that are entrusted to them as such.
