Ron Paul: The TSA and the Growing Police State

"The police state in this country is growing out of control." ~ Ron Paul

“The police state in this country is growing out of control.  One of the ultimate embodiments of this is the TSA that gropes and grabs our children, our seniors, and our loved ones and neighbors with disabilities.  The TSA does all of this while doing nothing to keep us safe. That is why my ‘Plan to Restore America,’ in additional to cutting $1 trillion dollars in federal spending in one year, eliminates the TSA. We must restore the freedom and respect for liberty that once made American the greatest nation in human history.  I am deeply committed to doing that as President of the United States.” ~ Ron Paul; January 23, 2012

John Mica (R.-Fla), author of the legislation that created the TSA, agrees with Ron Paul:

“The whole program has been hijacked by bureaucrats. It mushroomed into an army. It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion. They’ve failed to actually detect any threat in 10 years.”
