We have all been through airport security. We all recall having to take our shoes off, take our belts off, and pretty much be subject to extreme amounts of scrutiny if we want to freely travel around the United States. Ever since 9/11 the American people have been under the control of the Transportation Security Administration and their over reaching powers that defile ordinary Americans into submission if they wish to travel in this country. Civil Liberties have been trashed by the TSA in an attempt to stop another terrorist attack, but is their a price we Americans should pay? Or do we deserve protection from the Bill of Rights that were given to us in 1791?
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky has been on a mission ever since he became a U.S. Senator to take on the TSA and restore our Civil Liberties back to their rightful place (within us!).
He has now launched a mission to End the TSA which will bring a lot of debate to this country:
Earlier this year, Paul was detained by the TSA after refusing to submit to an invasive pat down after already having passed through a body scanner. The incident prompted national headlines and caused the Senator to miss his flight.
“It’s time to END the TSA and get the government’s hands back to only stealing our wallets instead of groping toddlers and grandmothers,” says Paul in the statement.
The accompanying article sent out to Campaign for Liberty members encourages recipients tosign a petition in support of Rand Paul’s ‘End the TSA’ bill.
The TSA is probably the most outlandish federal agency that restricts the rights of the citizens who live in this country and prohibits them to freely travel which is a guaranteed right under the Constitution. The TSA needs to be stopped and our rights restored.
Support Senator Paul in his efforts to End the TSA and send a message to our government that the ability to be a free citizen is given to us by our creator and not the government.
