My sentiments exactly.
Though I would agree that we, as American citizens, should have the freedom to travel without having to carry papers, I do not object to the requirements that international airports/airlines demand in proving ones identification.
Furthermore, we are in American, not India, or Africa. The politics and civil liberties Ghandi was addressing is not the same as the issues facing American's in regards to national security. If they wish to follow in Ghandi's footprints, relocate.

Its already been done.
About a year or so ago after a 2 hour drive to the airport I realized I'd left my wallet at home. All I had was my luggage, my paper ticket and a few dollars in my pocket. Someone was meeting me at my destination that could cover my necessities so I decided to go ahead and see if I could get on the plane. I didn't have any trouble boarding but they did check my bag and I was selected to be searched prior to boarding.
