No Ron Paul
No Ron Paul

Ron Paul is a joke. WAKE UP YOU MINDLESS DRONES!!! You want everything to be privatized and have to fight like rabid dogs against each other? He's a racist that doesn't believe in equal rights. He wants the "market" to figure it out. Guess what. The market has had plenty of chances to figure it out and it hasn't. Libertarianism is a pipe dream that doesn't work. It's oligarchy!

its so simple... the only reason there is so much security in airports is cause companies are afraid for their planes and not people. Lets take a "terrorist" that wants to blow up people, would he really try to get on a plane? i mean there are plenty better and easier and more effective places to blow up. any mall or sports game.....

I like Ron but i disagree on this matter. If airlines were left to sort out the security then they would cut corners trying to keep ticket prices down. Airport security is a national issue and needs a standardized method that is the same everywhere. You cannot let airlines take such a big responsibility into their hands. They would be incompetent.

"The TSA warning that terrorists are seriously considering a new tactic: surgically implanting explosive devices"

I'm reminded of Animal Farm where Napoleon warns of some supposed sabotage by Snowball and, when there is a reaction at all, Boxer acknowledges, "Napoleon is always right."

Looking at an article by WP: Officials would not specify which terrorist organizations are thought to be considering this surgical tactic.

All of a sudden, I can't tell the pigs from the humans.

Privatizing airport security will cost twice as much and not change a damn thing. They will still have to squeeze your ass to see if there is a bomb in your drawers. Ron Paul sucks and his ideas are lame.

Wow the next thing the terrorist will do is dress up like TSA employees and plant bombs on the non suspecting flying public. This is getting really scary. I want my mom and blanket the next time I fly.

Ronny's off. Airlines across the country could adopt bizarre new standards (one airport allows beer bottles another bans all liquids etc.) Also what if one airport is more lax than another (companies cut corners all the time) and a plane is hijacked, then your avg citizen 200 miles away is affected. Govt employees don't suffer from financial downturns and become exposed to ruin, like a private security company would.

And how exactly can a security check catch contraband without an Xray scan?

Palin, Bachman, and Romney must step aside for the good of the country and allow Ron Paul to win the nomination by default, that is the only hope. Ron Paul cant beat the Conservative machine because its rigged, but if given the GOP nomination he will defeat Obama in a landslide

How does exactly USA government know that terrorists are about to plant bombs in their bodies? Are terrorist setting up a press conference everytime they have a new idea? US gov is so full of lies.

Um. I disagree 100% with him on profiling. You're basically using the agism tactic to say a 95 year old can no way help run a terrorist attack because they are 95. That makes no sense and is dangerous because you turning a blind eye on a group based on of age.

What happened when a 95 year old IS responsible for leading or operating in a terrorist attack? What will be Paul's answer then.

I don't like his view on the TSA and profiling. In fact, I don't like profiling at all.

I am just absolutely in awww that this man is not president. How and why are Americans so fucking stupid? Michelle Bauchmen? Newt Gingrich? Rudy GOOLiani? And last but not least... Sarah Palin? You've got to be kidding me. Ron Paul is the ONLY person that would provide actual change to our lives.

Pawlenty? HAHAHA.... what a fucking joke.

Ron Paul 2012. God help this country if it doesn't happen.

Total TSA budget in 2011: 128.9 million. Pass the buck to the consumer? What Ron Paul never takes into account is the pragmatism of what he's proposing. Airlines are going under and pilots in training make 20K a year. What's going on in America is that every CEO and their "team" are robbing the till and bailing out when they're through. Nearly every company in the world who can afford it is cooking their books and fucking over the earnest investor. That is due to lack of regulation in finance!

This is not me but a very smart young person ! (I'm 14 and I taught myself politics because of Ron Paul. I'm going to tell my parents to vote for him. I'm going to tell my friends to tell their parents. I'm going to grow up to become a true American Politician that defends the rights and liberty of the people through the constitution. Go Ron Paul!)

You cannot surgically implant without killing yourself or being in some serious pain. I don't care what pain killer they give you, you will be in pain. They just want to make a law to make you pass through sperm killing radiation. If you have sperm then you are a terrorist. These people are just an extension of the FED!!! End the FED and all the government imposed terrorism will go away within a few years.

Why should we trust ANYTHING the TSA has to say? Ron Paul is right, he doesn't want to "privatize the TSA" but allow the airline companies provide for their own security (like they used to).

One of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin (also attributed to Thomas Jefferson) said, "those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither." I genuinely believe that the majority of Americans are too stupid to live. Put aside the manipulative puppet masters working from behind the scenes (corporations, politicians, lobby groups, etc), the general American population have allowed themselves to willingly trade one for the other. Just kill off these Americans, and let us live.

All passengers must be locked in little airplane cells with full shackles. To save spsce they can be standing room only facing backwards. No lights in the cells would enhance security. Naturally safety belts would be installed according to FAA regulations.

this is going to sound nuts but since the search and pat downs are part of the agreement we enter when buying the ticket that service IS an airport liability. it IS part of THEIR service. they are obliged to keep it in place.

There is only one solution.
All travelers must be stripped nude & put on a conveyer belt where they will be systematically swabbed examined anally & vaginally probed with a proctoscope X-rayed MRIed and then placed in a paper gown with a headbag & adult diaper & strapped in a full restraint chair which will then be loaded on the aircraft with a forklift.
For the sake of diversity mostly Arabs should conduct these procedures.

Do the terrorists just call america and tell them their plans? I am so confused, and wish the news actually put sources for everything they said.
