I’m not endorsing any political agenda or campaign, I don’t look to the political system as the solution to many of our problems at all and, as a rule, I am strongly of the opinion that we need fewer rules and regulations, not more. But I really can’t find anything wrong with this:
I warned at the time of the creation of the TSA that an unaccountable government entity in control of airport security would provide neither security nor defend our basic freedom to travel. Yet the vast majority of both Republicans and Democrats then in Congress willingly voted to create another unaccountable, bullying agency– in a simple-minded and unprincipled attempt to appease public passion in the wake of 9-11.
…The solution to the need for security at US airports is not a government bureaucracy.
Yes, Mr. Paul is a politician. But methinks he might actually be a pretty decent human being as well. None of the others that I am aware of on either side are speaking the truth – or have a record of doing so – about these things.
Even with authentic, trustworthy leadership, though, we cannot shirk our individual responsibility as ordinary citizens to protect and preserve our own rights and liberty. What do you all think – can we find trustworthy representation and leadership anywhere within the political sector today?
