7. Can you say "National ID Card"?
Since this will be something that you will have to produce at the polls, how long will it take before it is something that you will need to identify yourself as a "Citizen" and therefore have "Rights" under the "Constitution"?

Note the quotes. This is just another step toward making those ideals mythical.
