If you dont have a passport already, you may need to get one soon.
Residents of certain states are going to need to show their passports rather than simply their IDs even if theyre only flying domestic.
Yes, it will infringe upon states rights handed to them by the 10th Amendment and create unnecessary cost to taxpayers in order to implement the change, but lets be real the government doesnt care about that.
From Zero Hedge:
To comply with the 2005 Real ID Act, which the U.S. government has been slowly implementing for the past decade, citizens in a number of different U.S. states will now be forced to obtain a passport if they want to board an airplane even for domestic flights.
The Department of Homeland Security and representatives with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection have declined to comment on why certain states have been singled out, but starting in 2016, residents of New York, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and American Samoa will need a passport to fly domestically. All other states will still be able to use their state-issued drivers licenses and IDs for now, at least.

Just like in the old USSR.
HAHAHAHAHA! Feel sorry for the suckers that live in those states.
Most states with mussies???
Some pigs are more equal than others.....................
Okay, I feel sorry for you.
Especially the ones who live in the state of American Samoa.
An internal passport is an identity document that may or may not be used by a country to control and monitor the internal movement and residence of its people. Internal passports have been used by Imperial Russia and its successor states, France, the Confederate States of America, the Soviet Union, the Ottoman Empire, South Africaduring apartheid, and other countries. Countries that currently have internal passports include Russia, China, Iraq, and Ukraine.
Show us your papers!
Violates the interstate commerce clause.
All these inconveniences for Americans because of terrorism
and they do not do a damn thing but bring more of them in .
Shame on these states for shortchanging their residents with substandard drivers licenses that causes this result, which will be expensive to state residents. Sure glad I no longer live in New York ( thought I already had passport).
Exactly...Sand Monkey havens
Yeah they will close our borders only when they decided they need to keep us here
It doesn't make sense to me, getting a NH drivers license requires all kinds of proof of identity, etc. Probably more than in the typical liberal meccas.
Internal passport: Your Papers, Please.
California and all states giving drivers licenses and identification cared to illegal aliens should be on that list. California gives ID’s to illegals based on information coming from the Mexican consulates, Mexican matricula cards. They are not secure ID. Any terrorist could get one. I have my passport. I am ready.
Show us your papers!
Show us your National ID Card!
Papers? We don’t got to show you no stinkin papers!
how about when you go to vote ?.....
In order to vote , one should be caused to first swear a loyalty oath , facing the flag , with a hand on the Bible ;
AND show ID
Perhaps a civics awareness competency test and a drug test for pre-voting registration as well
