Rand Paul on TSA

From Politico: The second bill would permit travelers to opt out of pat-downs and be rescreened, allow them to call a lawyer when detained, increase the role of dogs in explosive detection, let passengers “appropriately object to mistreatment,” allow children 12 years old and younger to avoid “unnecessary pat-downs” and require the distribution of the new rights at airports.

Again I ask, why not simply take a stand on this little bit of language from the Supreme Law of the Land: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The answer: Because even guys like Rand Paul want the power to pick & choose who, what, where, when and how on every topic.

The good Senator from Kentucky and the loins of the Congressman from Texas is no friend of Liberty.

Here's the entire piece.



  1. Mr. K,

    Rand Paul is no prize. He rode to elected office on the coattails of the old man.

    Personally, the Hangman's Noose for all 535 Plus the occupant of the West Wing is too kind.


  2. Sam,

    Consider how spineless Congress has been concerning all of the usurpations of power that Obama has indulged in since taking office. Perhaps it is not a matter of Rand Paul being weak on liberty so much as trying to be pragmatic, hoping to produce a bill that might make it past the other 534 scum. I think he does understand that he is not pushing for true liberty, but perhaps feels he can accomplish a partial victory against the government, one that could perhaps snowball, once we have a foot in the door.

    I know we should not be _asking_, but rather _demanding_ our rights. He is probably still clinging to the belief that a political solution might be found, and is attempting to bring that about. That is how it seems to me, anyway.

  3. I if I'm to be searched I want a warrant with my name on it, No "blanket" warrant!
    Papa Mike
