I don't have numbers, but I have a theory that the airports/airlines/rental cars/hotels/vacation destinations/etc. are having problems and part of
what's killing our economy because people only fly when they have to, they choose to fly less in business because they can video conference easier
and vacationers have other choices within driving distance/ships/trains etc. Not to forget less aircraft are made & sold, less hotels are being built,
less cars purchased by rental agencies.
So, lets not forget it's not just the greedy Bankers and real estate speculators that killed our economy, the TSA and Homeland Security destroyed a
big part of it and continue to keep all industries related to travel from prospering as much as the would because I know people choose to fly less
because of this BS.
As far as having a right to travel. Just because it wasn't spelled out in the Constitution doesn't mean it has to be to be a right. God gave me the
God damn right to travel unmolested as I see fit in the ways that are most convenient for the time period. If that's what ends up triggering the
next revolution then so be it. I was born to travel the Earth as I choose, how I choose and when I choose. The rich folks can hire a private aircraft
and bypass the BS, so I suppose the best solution is have enough money to bypass the TSA earth scum.
