As a result, the country can't guarantee that it accurately counts national votes in a timely fashion. This article discusses the problem and potential solutions to the U.S. voting dilemma.

The U.S. doesn't even have a national ID.


And we damn sure don't need one. That's a giant step towards an oppressive government, and it's already oppressive enough as it is.

And besides, each one of us already has a nationally assigned ID card: Our social security card. The huge amount of fraud and misuse surrounding that particular identifier alone should be enough to tell the people that we don't need yet another layer of redundant ID.
