Don't blame me, I did not vote for this idiot. Just glad he is a lame duck, one term Gov. Can't see anyone being dumb enough to vote for him again. Even people that claim to be a republican sure got scre-wed over.

It is bad enough that license plates are scanned on the highways and at toll-booths ,. Why this type of identification has to be implemented at a ballgame, the mall or any public place is not worth the cost as far as our freedoms are concerned.If THEY have to know where you are at any given time, how free are you really?

I would have thought that this technology had been in use for a long time.

Facial recognition is favored by the NeoCon Republicans and their BIG BUSINESS financial supporters. Kasich got the word from the party bosses so he switched.

Of course the feds fight photo ID. How else can one vote early and often in polling spots all over town?

I will never ever forget Ted Kennedy fighting against caller ID, saying it violates the rights of those calling. Same with this. It will be used to find and identify terrorists and other criminals. However, the nutcases that think the government is out to get them will automatically think that the government will be using this technology against them. Why? For what reason? The paranoid fools.

CommonSense....I like this idea about facial recognition, but I don't think my neighbor of over 30 years has to all of a sudden see my ID after all these years when I go to vote! That's just BS after years and years. Same with the paper and the "chads" now we have these piece of crap computers from "Diebold" that no one wanted but Dick Chaney!

The liberals will HATE this idea. They can't even accept the idea of a photo ID.

@rocket,using that logic,the state does not need a warrant to enter your house and search it.If you have nothing to hide,then you should have no problem with warrantless searches.Idgets!

I guess they are so dumb as to not look at the photo on the license and the persons face. The Republicans have to tax and spend to do it.

It is only intrusive if you don't want to be recognized. The law abiding citizen should have no problem with this technology.
