I had some problems when I tried to cross the border into the UK with my romanian plastic ID card, but when I showed the officer my passport he was very happy to see it because I saw that he didn't trusted my ID card.

^ Luckily for me, I had no problem this summer showing my ID card. The UK border officer took it and check it for about 1 minute, exactly as it did it for the Dutch driver in front of my car. Long live plastic ID cards, EU and the Schengen Agreement!! Thanks to all of these, I barely can remember my old passport filled with strange triangular, round or rectangular stamps.
I simply can't comprehend why such politics isn't implemented at the US-CAN border. It's easy to motivate it by terrorist threats or illegal immigration, but I think the US has a lot to learn from the united Europe.

Americans don't have national ID cards (I use my driver's license on most occasions when one would be required, but that's not proof of citizenship); if anyone suggested it, people would start screaming "police state!" And sentences like "I think the US has a lot to learn from [no "the"] united Europe" don't go over well here.

Czech republic allows you to enter the country even without a passport or an id card, if you are able to proof you are a citizen of an EU country. I don't know if this is applied also by other members states, but this is not the first country I head to allow this.
here it is the link:

http://www.mvcr.cz/mvcren/article/ci...nd-579383.aspx

"If a citizen of the EU, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, or Switzerland doe not have a travel document and cannot obtain one, at the time of the border check the police will allow him/her to prove identity and the fact that he/she is a citizen of the EU or one of the aforementioned countries by means of another document."

I have a passport card, and I use it for everyday transactions that require ID (besides going to Canada, of course). Its format is more like German personalausweis but without a signature printed on the card. I think if the USA ever decides to introduce a national ID card, the passport card would be the closest candidate with some minor modifications.

Connecticut and NY are 2 states in the same country. Germany and Poland are two different countries that abolished border crossing checks.

It's like comparing apples with oranges.

i know that. and this is a reason why i think EU should be a federal country like US. no borders, no restrictions. that would be awesome. but this is a subject for other thread.
