While at the family farm awaiting the beginning of bow season I head a public service announcement pertaining to renewing a Georgia’s driver license. In order to renew the applicant is required to have the following documents:
• You must be a Georgia citizen
• You must be a US citizen and you must prove it. How?
• You must have at least one (1) original or certified document to prove your Primary Identity; and
• At least one (1) document to prove your Social Security Number; and
• At least two (2) documents to prove your Residential Address; and
• Appropriate Name Change documents, if needed
Excuse me? The Georgia law is in accordance to the Real ID Act enacted by the congress in 2005. What does Eric Holder and the Obama Administration has to say about this. If they are suing states over voter ID why haven’t they sought repeal?. And by the way, didn’t you need a valid photo ID to be admitted to the democratic convention? Does this mean that the democrats are racists?
