    But the Constitution is about what kinds of laws a government cannot pass based on certain fundamental rights discovered by our founding fathers.  None of the items you listed are about what the government can and cannot do to its citizens.  Now if the government were to pass laws prohibiting a mandatory photo ID requirement for your situations, then that's a different story.
