Georgia's law requiring photo ID to vote was struck down as a poll tax.

So, the state set up a program to give out free (i.e., subsidized by actual taxpayers) photo IDs to "the less fortunate" (i.e., those who've decided to do nothing with their lives).

Result? Well, nobody came.

Let's face it: those who can pay the poll tax will, and then vote. Those who can't won't vote anyway. Daytime TV and a bottle of ripple are much more compelling when you're the recipient, rather than the forced donor, of government largesse.
