Rand Paul: End The TSA


Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), son of Presidential candidate Ron Paul, has in recent weeks doubled down on his campaign to do away with the Transportation Security Administration.

The younger Paul’s contempt for the agency is no secret. He was detained by the TSA earlier this year after refusing to allow agents to sexually molest him before boarding a flight, an incident that caused him to miss a speaking engagement that he was scheduled to attend.

Last week, Paul began circulating a petition, setting the wheels in motion to completely do away with the TSA. He is urging all Americans to sign the petition.

An email from the Senator sent to supporters of The Campaign for Liberty says:

Sometimes our liberty slips away silently, and it is almost hard to notice what went wrong and where. The one fortunate thing about the TSA is that they certainly don’t fit that definition.

The American people shouldn’t be subjected to harassment, groping, and other public humiliation simply to board an airplane. As you may have heard, I have some personal experience with this, and I’ve vowed to lead the charge to fight back.

The petition can be signed here.

Paul is also reportedly currently drafting “multiple” TSA bills, including one to privatize the airport security as well as a passenger bill of rights.
