If you're reading this, it probably means you don't have a passport yet – that makes you just like most Americans. In fact, 70% of your fellow citizens don't have a passport. But why run with the crowd? Make a statement: get a passport.

The fact is, if you don't have a passport you can't leave the U.S. to go anywhere – not even to Mexico or Canada.
