Voter ID(on’t?)

American leaders like to proclaim that we get into wars either to bless other countries with democratic governments like our own or to protect American freedoms. Some would argue, we succeed at neither. One such naysayer, is former Marine Tim Thompson, a native of Tennessee appalled by the state’s new voter ID law. In this short film by David Earnhardt (UNCOUNTED: The New Math of American Elections), Thompson makes his case.
