We don't need no stinking scanners and we don't need no stinking permission to exercise our rights, we need to learn how to exercise our rights whether they the government or TSA or any other agency wants to give us permission to or not. I think most of us here are probably in agreement that the TSA is out of control and just about everything it does is unconstitutional and some of us here including myself say they shouldn't even exist at all. But the question that we have to answer is, what do we do about it? Do we march on washington DC in the hopes that the federal politicians will limit the power of this federal agency that they created and that they fund to the tune of 8 billion dollars a year?
Do we contact the TSA itself and demand that it put limits on itself, that it's going to fix it's own problem that they created? Do we vote the bums out in the hopes that the new bums say sorry for all those last guys they really screwed it up but we're going to fix everything for you now? Or do we go to Federal courts in the hopes that these nine unelected, unaccountable, politically connected bureaucrats or lawyers on the supreme courts say you guys have freedom to fly now you have our permission? Or do we boycott the airlines until their broke? Maybe, but maybe their buddies in washington DC, like george bush did back in 2001, will say these guys are too big to fail and we'll bail them out with 15 to 20 billion dollars of your money anyway. My message here whether it is the TSA, the patriot act, or the endless foreign wars is the same, going to the federal government to fix the problems created by the federal government isn't just a silly idea, it doesn't work and it's never going to work.
When soever that general government assumes un-delegated powers, this was Thomas Jefferson author of The Declaration of Independence, he said a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy and what he meant by that is we're not supposed to sit around and wait for the Federal government to fix it's own problems, we're supposed to resist violations of our rights in our communities, in our families, and in our states as they happen.
"Political party? None (pause), I don't think they believe me, but it's true. I'm not a Democrat or a Republican or a Conservative or a Liberal or anarchist or a glean? (not sure if that's the right word) or a socialist or a libertarian or anything in between. I'm not even an independent, all I am is me and I all I want is to live free. Thank you for joining me"
