On Monday, U.S. Senator Rand Paul was detained by the TSA for about
two hours at an airport in Nashville. By doing so, TSA officials
directly violated the U.S. Constitution and they demonstrated once again
why the rest of the world is coming to regard us as a bunch of
disgusting, arrogant "pig people". Do we really want to get such a bad
reputation that virtually nobody will ever want to visit this country? We are going to absolutely destroy our tourism industry with this
nonsense. Yes, we all want to fly safely, but other countries get the
job done without their security officials running around acting like a
bunch of Nazi prison guards. The TSA should be shut down, but if
Congress wants it to continue to exist it should be given a dual
mandate. It should be directed to protect the dignity of the American
people first, and the safety of the American people second. If those
running the TSA don't believe that this is possible, then they should be
immediately replaced, because there are a whole lot of good people out
there that could get the job done. Right now, TSA officials are
treating American citizens like they aren't even human. The truth is
that Rand Paul got off easy compared to what has happened to many other
Americans. As I have written about previously
some elderly Americans have been strip-searched, some have had their
adult diapers removed, and some have even been left covered in urine by
invasive TSA searches. If the TSA will treat Senator Rand Paul like a
scumbag, and if they will brutally strip-search elderly women, than what
do you think they are going to do to you
when the time comes?
I don't know about you, but I did not sign up to live in North Korea.
I signed up to live in America.
But the country we are living in does not look much like America anymore.
It is as if the U.S. Constitution does not even matter anymore.
