(NaturalNews) Let’s ask the commonsense question: If the TSA can run security checkpoints at not only airports but also local high schools, and if the TSA can reach down your pants and feel your genitals in complete violation of your Fourth Amendment rights, and if the TSA says it has the complete authority under the U.S. Constitution to do whatever it wants, then what are the limits on the TSA’s power?
It’s not just an important question, it is THE question of freedom: What are the limits of government power?
1) Conduct house to house searches without warrants or justification of any kind (and arrest people who resist).
2) Shut down your state's highways, railroads and airports at any time, for any reason, without explanation or justification.
3) Conduct body cavity searches at polling stations. This could literally mean TSA agents reaching into your anus to see if they can find any "hanging chads" in there.
4) Search parking lots for cars with Ron Paul stickers, then impound the vehicles under suspicion of terrorism.
5) Begin carrying firearms and using them to enforce its agenda. Right now, TSA goons don't carry guns, but before long they could be sticking them in your face while planting coc aine in your carry-on luggage just to have you arrested and molested in the back room.
6) Demand to install TSA representatives in local Sheriff's offices and police departments. These would function as TSA spies who report on the activities of local law enforcement and keep them in line. It's a classic Nazi tactic, also used throughout the KGB.
7) Announce a TSA fee collection mandate from air travelers, then shut down any airport that refused to comply. This would basically be a for-profit racketeering operation. Pay up or lose your airport.
8) Demand veto power over ALL state legislation involving security, then boycott states that refuse to comply. Yes, the TSA could start having a say in local politics and could even demand the power to veto local legislation it didn't like (such as the recent attempt in Texas to criminalize the TSA's obscene pat-downs).
9) Set up official TSA naked inspection rooms at airports, where TSA officials take travelers into the back room and demand they disrobe as a "security measure." The TSA would effectively operate as a gang of serial molesters.
10) Visit local malls and sporting arenas and demand they pay TSA "protection fees" if they wish to keep their events safe from terrorists. This is classic mob behavior -- a "protection racket" that extracts money from businesses if they don't want to be bombed or burned down. The TSA has already started running bomb exercises in airports just to see how police might reac

This has got to stop.
The financial terrorism that comes along with this has already been committed. There is only one way to make an immediate impact:
We need to see huge lawsuits against corporations that require their employees to fly. Hit the big money where it hurts, in turn, they will pressure the TSA to back off.

And if you 'resist', then they might kill you. Or some cop will kill you - and half the accounts posting in threads about it will be supporting the TSA and the cop.
Kill with a Borrowed Sword
When you do not have the means to attack your enemy directly, then attack using the strength of another. Trick an ally into attacking him, bribe an official to turn traitor, or use the enemy's own strength against him.
It is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
