In response to increased “security” measures forced upon the people at airports around the country – naked body scanners, “enhanced pat downs,” and more, legislation is being proposed to protect the right of the people to be secure in “their persons, houses, papers, and effects.”

    I heard Texas was threatened with no fly zones by the FAA and TSA because of the tough law they passed. We really need to get behind these states and support them every way we can. TSA shouldn’t just be disbanded, every complicit TSA agent needs to be charged with violating constitutional law! Maybe then they’ll think twice about just “following orders”.

    that’s true Cassie, they were.

    Crazy isn’t it?

    Our Constitution created a Union of Sovereign States, with a federal government tasked with limited authority and duties (10th Amendment & Article 1 Section 8) designed to enable the several states.

    Now the federal government attempts to exercise a supremacy over the states that the Constitution never authorized. Therefore as their acts of oppression and dictatorial control over the several sovereign states is not Constitutionally authorized, it is therefore an unlawful usurpation of power and must be opposed, nullified and ignored by the states and the citizens of those states.

    If I have to, I’ll take the grope down and eat a lot of beans and spicy foods for days before. Sure my wife won’t like that at bedtime, but sacrifices must be made sometimes.

    It’s worse than that. We allow this and those UNCONSTITUTIONAL SOBRIETY CHECKPOINTS, and soon it will be EVERYWHERE else.

    We shouldn’t need new legislation, when we have the 4th amendment right there in black and white, which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court. IN OTHER WORDS – WHAT THE TSA IS DOING IS GROSSLY ILLEGAL.. !!! “Probable Cause” implies that everyone is suspect, but where is the “specific information” that is required and the search warrants based on that information? NO ONE should be subject to this harassment unless it meets the above criteria..!!!

    We don’t need new legislation. Where there is an airport in need of TSA, have that county’s sherriff department go to the airport and enforce the law and uphold the Constitution, and have the airlines cover funding.
