Trivia: The United States is a country without a national identity card. Although many Americans use passports and driver’s licenses as photo ID, not everyone has them, especially low-income people and blacks. America’s two parties are now at loggerheads over legislation on whether, and what, voters will need to show identification to cast ballots. A small piece of ID is used by politicians to perpetuate America’s long-standing voter restrictions.
For decades, the US spoke as if it had created democracy itself. But in a country that bills itself as the “beacon of democracy in the world,” lawmakers have been creating barriers to voting and distorting constituency boundaries. In fact causes “representatives” to choose “voters,” not “voters” to select “representatives.” The so-called “one man, one vote” American democracy is just a political game to win.
