For as long as I’ve been politically aware, there has been a constant bleating about the importance of moderation and bipartisanship. While some problems are conducive to meeting in the middle, some aren’t, and I see nothing inherently noble in declaring oneself a moderate. There are some things I hold fast on, and they are things about which I anticipate never changing my opinion (or indeed, even allowing that opposition can be valid).
One of mine is a voter ID law. There is no reasonable, or even coherent, objection to requiring voters to show identification. If you oppose such a requirement, you’re wrong.
I’m making notes, both mental and physical, on my list for a near-future post. It is not a long list so far, and I don’t expect it to get that way. For most issues, there are reasonable opinions, held by reasonable people, that nevertheless differ.
Watch for my list of exceptions soon.
