"Fight to be Free" or, why does the TSA have its hand down my pants?

Anyone that has lived in America longer than six months has heard the catchphrase: "America has fought to be free", or "We are at war to remain free." This elicits feelings of pride and joy to any red blooded American. Heck, even our Commander in Thief utters the phrases during weak moments!

My dad is a Vietnam Veteran that suffered two battle wounds during his tour, my Great Uncle was shot out of the sky in his B-17, and two of my nephews fought in Iraq. They suffered the horrors of war first hand in order to protect America from aggressors, as well as preserve freedom. I can speak for my dad at the very least; his version of Freedom that he was fighting for did not involve his children or wife being felt up by TSA agents.

In history, tyrannical governments have subjugated their citizens in many ways. The very definition of Tyranny is as follows: "cruelty and injustice in the exercise of power or authority over other others." I don't know about you, but I think that fits the TSA quite well. Why are they doing this? It is for one reason only; to get America conditioned for intrusive behavior at the hands of its government. After all, once you have had the TSA stick its hands down your pants, monitoring your private phone conversations or Internet habits seems like a walk in the park.

Everyone knows that to keep America free, we would just have to profile middle eastern men that fit a few parameters. That would keep us safe. This is not about safety.

In order to preserve the freedom and dignity our men in uniform fought for, we must resist this intrusion. Speak out at the airport in line; call your politicians; and best of all, do not fly unless absolutely needed. One of the worst tyrants in history, Adolf Hitler, once said the following: "How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think." Lets make sure America's soft tyrants, Obama and Napalitano, are stopped in their tracks.
