So we're not becoming a fascist state under Bush, huh?

Americans may soon be required to have a passport to board a domestic flight. Or... get this... to picnic in a national park.

Yup, you may soon have to possess a passport the next time you want to fly off for a visit to Aunt Tilly in Akron, or take the family to vacation in Yellowstone.

How in the world is this different from "Your papers, please..." in the Soviet Union?

How, indeed?

Will people keep ignoring what is happening, now so obviously right before our eyes? Will the people of this country ever take off the rose-colored glasses and stop denying what is going on?

I've said it before, will say it again: America has suffered more grievous damage during George W. Bush's time as President than she ever has throughout her entire long history. And I don't know if we'll ever recover from it all adequately enough.

"Your papers, please" is generally associated with the WWII German military, which works even better with your Bush fascism analogy.
