im just discusted with the way are world gets farther from freedom and human rights laws ,im thinkin the terorist are winning and makin a free world impossable to achieve,ive allways dreamed of open borders and equal laws for all mostly just common sense you know,basic human rights,free trade and consumer laws,just a general good for all and uniform system for all people of the world, like being able to see the places you dreamed of without a big hassle going to and from your home country not needing to get citezenship if you decide to live and work there ,equall wages and prices everywhere ,fair competition in businesses open to all not just the corprate giants, imiss the service of mom and pop operations when they know your name and your comunity. what do you think ? or what would you add to this concept?

that shows how human beings are unsatisfied with anything that is done for their safetly. We complained of terrorists intruding into our country using fake ids, the government wants to make sure that they know who is going inn and out, we complain about rights. We complain of illigal immigration, this measure would take care of some of illigal entry problem we still complain. I am beginning to understand how tough it is for leaders who are faced with unnecessary criticism

no one knows how open borders would affect the world or us but we still know that crime exist but good citezens shouldnt be treated as criminals either.

I think the government is doing what they feel they need to do to stop terrorisum. Right now the only people who need passports to enter the us are people flying. The land part of this deal doesn't go into effect until later. I do think that the government should offer passports at a cheeper price as I think everyone should have one. I don't because I'm a poor colege student and cant afford it right now, but I do intend on getting one. I think that for the average person it won't be that big of a deal, but think of the companies that have to worry about all of this, ground shipping is going to be effected more then the average person because someone has to drive the products into canada or mexico.

The small inconvenience is worth my life and yours. I share your dream of open borders, but we have this territorial problem worldwide. In the span of existence our lives are but a blink of the eye. It's not what we have it is what we do while we are here.

A little shakespeare ladies and gentle I would like to share: "Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor....for patriotism is indeed a double edged sword. It emboldens the blood just as it narrows the mind..... And when the drums have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry infused with FEAR and blinded with PATRIOTISM, will offer all of their rights unto the leader..... How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Ceaser."

Im in agreement with you on that one. I too am sick of all the rules and its just because of the terrists. Wouldnt it be great if we didnt have terrists around? Our problems would be solved.

well we do need rules but common sense not invasive even without terrorist they still are trying to get into our private lives and the front door without due process and the problems get bigger and we are treated more as a number than a human being

i agree with most of your statements except that I don't believe passports are a complete bad idea. I like the thought that now you have to have a pass port for your children and a statement saying where you are going from the other parent. Atleast then for the single parents they have more information to go on if the other parent ever skips country with the kids. There's good and bad to everything.

It is ashame that we need our passports even more so now than before but I think it is for the good as long as terrorism is a problem. We need to be sure of who is leaving here or going from here to another country. I think I would have a problem if we needed passports to travel from state to state. We have too many people sneaking into our country illegally so something had to be done about it.

Hmmm I think its a great idea, that of yours, freedom and equal rights for all... but in my honest opinion, I think it is a utopia that will never succeed... I mean it is almost human nature to do your best and provide well for your family, so there will always be competition for that next customer and then the next...

I see your point and I do agree with you. That would be really nice and not alot of hassel like you said. But, it is obvious that some people want other countries away from themselves and they'll do everything in their powers to keep others away.

Someday that world might exist. It seems to me that socialism is creeping into America and taking away freedom after freedom. I do not need some special rights group telling me what to do. Terrorism has changed many practices around the world. Terrorism cannot win anything. It destroys any goodness in the world and without goodness, the world cannot exist (at least with people on it). If terrorism ruled the world, what would be left to rule? Terrorism will in the end destroy itself, that is if the free world doesn't do it first.
