That is silly. In U.S. bars, they have to ask a young person for a driver's license to prove you are old enough to drink. In Atlanta grocery stores, they ask for driver's license before selling you any wine or beer. Even when you are old they have have to see the license. Are they acting as a Public Officer? Of course not!
I agree jed, but now to throw you a curve ball, why would the Democratic party not want I'd,s for voting? Confusion rules???
