Missing the point of voter ID

They were talking about  Voter ID this morning.  The black guys damned voter ID as just more red tape to keep blacks from voting.  The  Voter ID guys keep saying that if you need to show ID to buy cold medicine, you ought to show ID to vote.  It all sounds so thoughtful and democratic, but that is not why we put in voter ID. 
   We put in voter ID to keep the out of state college students from voting in New Hampshire.  College students are young and stupid and vote Democratic.  They also vote for more free stuff,  which we residents then have to pay for with our taxes.  Our own college student votes mess things up enough, we should not have to suffer out of state college students.
  The talking heads on TV don't talk about this.
