Trampling on my rights

Yesterday I took my son down to the DMV to get his learners permit, or whatever they call them now. After checking the website I knew what we needed to bring with us, in order to prove that he was who he says he is. The list is quite a bit longer than when I was his age.

We had to bring an original copy of his social security card, an original copy of his birth certificate, a certified copy of his report card, and his school activities card. Since I am listed as his father on the birth certificate, I got to show my license and one of my latest utilities bills in order to prove my residency.

I was born here. My people have been here since before almost anyone else's, guaranteed. My son was born here. We proved it by showing all of our documentation. No problem.

Why in the hell is it discriminatory or racist or whatever other BS name libs can come up with, to ask a person for their ID? When people that were born here have to show ID in all sorts of circumstances, why is it "bad" to ask a person who may not have been born here for theirs? Do they now have more rights than I do?

My son and his ancestors on both sides were born here in this country, for the last many centuries. He is an American. Why must he prove his citizenship and some idiot who broke in does not have to? How convoluted have we become in our thinking?

Kevin,

   As I was renewing my license a few weeks ago here in Florida I was told that my old license and my passport were not enough to prove I am who I say I am. Really? My passport is good enough for like 250 countiries but not from the one it was issued from?? I had to go home and get my social security card and birth certificate....the two documents I needed to get my fricking passport!!!!!!! I think anyone should be asked for ID and have to get the required documents. It certainly is only racist to those who are breaking the law. Illegals cost the country billions each year and the best thing to do to start gfetting us out of debt would be to remove all of them...there are enough unemployed peolpe out there that would take ANY job at this point.

I hope someone refuses to show any documentation, and then sues the govt. agency that turns them away. We'll then see if we have equal privledges to illegals. Only in America is right!

Kevin - we, as citizens, have allowed this kind of crap to happen.  And we, as citizens, need to change it.  How?  By how we vote, en masse.

Hmmm.  perhaps we should require all Americans to obtain the equivalent of a drivers license, even those who don't drive, it would be called an ID card.  In order for me to enroll in school I had to provide a birth certificate, immunization records and a copy of my ss card.  Why did I have to follow the rules if nobody else does?

Perhaps folks visiting could have passports handy the same as we do when we visit other countries.

Just a thought.  Is that too much to ask?
