TSA--Destroyers of the Constitution

The internet is full of Paper Patriots. Many talk about defending our Constitution, but not many actually get out there and take positive action. A good example is the TSA's un-Constitutional invasion of our very privacy. One guy had the guts to say, "Don't touch my junk." It was a hot news item for about a week, and then faded into the background as TSA quietly backed off. The flying public, not wanting to miss their flights to Grandma's house, meekly submitted to naked scanning or intrusive pat downs. The media moved on to other news.  TSA may have backed off a bit to damp down the furor, but they continue to touch us in the most intimate ways, and they are getting away with it.

The TSA has to be stopped. This is not Nazi Germany. "Just following orders" was found to be an invalid defense during the war trials after WWII. Are we as a nation going to allow our government to run roughshod over the individual rights we won when this nation was formed? Or are we going to quit being Paper Patriots and really fight back?

One guy, just one guy was enough to send the TSA cockroaches scurrying for cover. It only takes one. Then two. Then three people to stand up on their hind legs and say, "Enough!"

I have started a new website. A place where people can learn what they can do as individuals to stop this takeover by a dictatorial government. I've made it an open site, in that I want to enlist 100 co-authors to contribute to the dialogue with ideas and courses of action.
If you would like to join me, visit the website at Stop TSA and take a look. If you would like to become an author on this site, email me at

Its time to stop being Paper Patriots and actually stick your neck out by doing something.
