And here I am....this is as I read all the above is a "cultural" awareness program that should be delivered by government.
I will back quote to a post above "But so many people have been able to go places -- Canada, Mexico, Caribbean islands -- without them"
These are not your country, some may have seen them as extensions of yours, but they aint. Grasp that nettle first. and then we can go on to reality.
Border control, the ability to determine the person presenting themself, and how that will be done (passport) accept it, live with it, its going to get tighter and the new passports may actually include DNA.
Me, no problem with that as I have nothing to hide or worries about "big brother"....but a whole lot to protect to maintain my way of life either personally or as a person within my "community" .
Get a passport.
