    it’ll take a lot for the public to do anything. we’ve been sedated by the media and entertainment industry. As long as it doesn’t affect our personal lives in a big way we won’t care.

    Don’t be an enabler. I always opt out and make it as difficult as possible while being as civil as I can.

    I recently traveled by air and the whole scene of the sheep going through the porno scanners and marching to the orders of TSA agents all the while was very disturbing for me personally.

    Go Dr. Paul…

    Oh boy, Privatization ? Could you see the “false flags” flying everyday so as to justify ripping the public off ? Nah, shut the TSA down until you can prove there’s actual terrorism going on. I’m not buying these false flags and dreamed up thoughts of invisible enemy attacking us either. Every so called attack had ear-marks of an unforeseen hand controlling the events which led-up to the apprehension of the suspect (s).

    Enough of this dumb-ing down and scaring down tactic to justify more government expansion and control…..it’s all a waste anyway.

    Who are you gonna depend on? What happened to SELF dependence?

    The government has already shown it is NOT dependable

    Why do Americans love tolerating shit? How much are we gonna put up with before we finally say no? Enough is enough already. I’m hoping Ron does win. But he might not anyway, because the others won’t let him win, but that might not have been Ron’s intention. He might not have planned on winning, because he real intention might be to stir up the public and wake them up and we would fight our own battles to liberate ourselves, so that might be his plan.

    I remember hearing Alex Jones saying they were going to fear monger “surgically implanted bombs” YEARS AGO! THese things are scripted!

    Hopefully someone in congress will have the balls to stand with Ron Paul on This.

    Your 3 times more likely to be involved in a bank robbery than to be in a terrorist attack. So should the TSA pat down people when the enter banks?

    It never occurred to me but Ron Paul has made me think. I don’t fly…. EVER, so why am I paying for pat down & airport security? I feel so much safer with them molesting babies & grandmothers.

    I would think that the airlines would be lobbying for the privatization of security. Don’t they realize that many Americans are not flying – because of the TSA! I’m one of them!

    Also, as Washington is reportedly working (LOL) on dealing with its out-of-control debt, privatizing airport security would cut 100% of the money currently being spent on TSA and their despicable and questionable policies.

    Ron Paul is so sensible! I wonder when all Americans will wake up, listen and comprehend him!

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week approved the confiscation of private Palestinian land in the Palestinian village of Karyut in the Occupied West Bank for Israeli settlement activity. The move is the first of its kind in three years and the first during Netanyahu’s current term. The confiscation breaks the terms of the agreement with the United States not to confiscate land for settlement expansion

    Lets apply NOT profiling to me hiking and my goal is to snap a picture of a bear… I saw bears however I came home with only pictures of flowers, trees and a cat. Hmm, whats that old saying, looks like a duck, sounds like a duck.. “GOV what do you think?” “Well can’t be a duck (I hope they don’t think I’m.. racist!)” How can we NOT profile?????? Intelligent observations.

    I think it’s funny how people just throw their liberties away because of 9/11.
    There are like 10 9/11′s happening every year by car accidents. Now Imagine cancer and other diseases. There isn’t a war on car accidents, or disease. Nope. But there’s a war on terror. Terror? lol We’re fighting terror. Seriously, how silly does that sound?

    To be clear, I agree that airlines in combination with state and local law enforcement should carryout common sense security at airports but that can only happen with a strong support for litigation as a recourse and a real world discussion about 9/11. If you accept that 2 buildings were hit in New York and 3 fell due to an open jet fuel fire and the other fell due to a subsequent paper fire and though a plane hit the pentagon there was no damage from the wings….then the TSA will never go away

    Nice to know that the champion on individual rights agrees with a company engaging in collective profiling and at the same time advocates “tort reform” as if the guy with scissors sown in him is somehow the problem. I guess this philosophy of limiting civil legal recourse would extend to the airlines if they saw large profit losses as a result of lawsuits.

      huh?
      Ron Paul’s position is to have STATEs manage tort claims, and NOT the Feds putting liability caps on malpractice.

      As far as the company going with profiling, you don’t have to fly with them. Go fly with some other company who chooses not to profile.
      Right now you have no choice, you are molested by the TSA no matter who you fly with.

    Profit motive does not equal quality. It equals efficiency in spite of service. A business seeking profit will do as much as the customer allows…and the language of disagreement is not verbal…it is legal in the form of law suits.

    The only people who benefit from terrorism are governments because it gives them an excuse to pass draconian type legislation.

    Surgical bomb implants is a little ridiculous, just like when they said terrorists were poisoning salad bars.

    Ron says, if an airline profiled too much they might get a bad reputation. Wrong! They would become the most popular airline!

    You know,I totally support the 2nd amendment and understand how important guns are for our safety and liberty….but on an airplane is too small for the benefits of firearms to spread. What I mean is that on an airplane it is very likely that no lawabiding citizens will be carrying a weapon while a terrorist will be. And besides guns cant be used safely for self defense on an airplane for obvious reasons.

    switch it up, repeal the worst parts of the present system, then privatize. Oh, and while we’re at it allow us to do open carry of weapons then let’s see how safe we are then.

    he’s got the right idea, take government/tsa out of the airports, the airports are a business, they should be in control. and if they cant provided the protection then people can just stop using them and let them go under

    The suggestion that we “give up our liberties for safety” is the opposite of liberty itself. There are but two choices: liberty or tyranny.
