Ron Paul says what I said: the airport groping and x-raying has to stop!

Listen to the man:

  • private property should be protected by private individuals – not the government
  • remove immunity from government agents to grope us and take x-rays of us:  if an ordinary citizen does not have the right to do something, then the government does not have that right either
  • the duty of the government is to protect our rights – not to abuse them in the name of safety
  • buying an airplane ticket does not mean you are relinquishing your rights
  • we are not safer by sacrificing our liberty

Sound familiar?

He also points out something I have said in comments to other blogs, though not blogged here:  putting a loaded gun into the cockpit has been much more effective at curtailing air-terrorism than all  the airport procedures put together!

(OK – I’ve gone further in my comments on other blogs, if not here:  if every adult passenger were required to be certified in the use of firearms and carried a loaded gun on the airplane, we would not only be much safer, we would also be empowered to protect us and our families instead of being treated like cattle waiting for slaughter, hoping it’ll happen later rather than sooner!  It’s about time we started accepting the responsibility for our own safety instead of hoping someone else will do it for us .)

    Here is a very important post by a blogger named Matt Kernan.

    On November 21, 2010, I was allowed to enter the U.S. through an airport security checkpoint without being x-rayed or touched by a TSA officer. This post explains how.

    Here is the audio recording of the events, captured on his iPhone: TSA: The Audio

    And here are some of the emails he has received since posting his story: TSA: A Follow Up

    The bottom line is this: the TSA is all bluff. They don’t have a legal leg to stand on. They rely on trickery and intimidation. And the only reason they are getting away with it is because people let them.
