    Our government doesn't care who gets into the country, but they sure as hell don't want the tax paying serfs to escape the plantation.

    One answer

    Biometric Government ID. Get to the border, swipe your card and it establishes you are a US citizen

    What's after that? Just put microchips in our brains so that they can know what we're doing and thinking at all times?

    Tin foil?

    No, actually a simple form of ID that is not hack able and assures you are not susceptible to identity theft, voter fraud and can serve as every ID in your wallet

    It was because the US threatened to make border-crossings more difficult if Canada didn't tighten up their customs and immigration policies. And because the US changed the policy so that Canadians need a passport to come into the US first, Canada reciprocated.

    Because the US made it more difficult for foreigners to come into this country, other countries have made it more difficult for Americans to travel abroad. It is easier for Canadians to travel around the world than it is for Americans.
