Yes is the argument that Becky Akers makes in her recent LewRockwell.com article.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is no longer angering just us peons with its absurd airport checkpoints. Itâ€™s also infuriating foreign rulers. Which raises an intriguing question: given the American governmentâ€™s habit of liberating oppressed people around the world, will one of these piqued potentates return the favor and liberate us from the TSA?
Becky just might be on to something – especially seeing that there’s nothing in the Constitution that even authorizes the TSA’s existence.
And that’s crucial, because the 10th Amendment states pretty clearly that any power exercised by the federal government must be clearly authorized by the Constitution.
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
