Default TSA expansion - what the..?

TSA Rifles Through Bags, Conducts Pat Downs At Paul Ryan Event

As if you needed another reason, there's one more for not voting Romney/Ryan in November.

Ron Paul. 'Nuff said.

Per this source, nothing new.

TSA Says Its Providing Some Backup Security at Presidential Campaign Events | Transportation Security Administration | TheBlaze.com

"A TSA spokesman confirmed to TheBlaze the agency has provided such support for the last three presidential campaign cycles and for other Secret Service-guarded events.

At the request of the U.S. Secret Service, TSA may provide additional security at certain events, including conventions, inaugurations, and other major events, spokesman David Castelveter told TheBlaze in an email."

"Excessive security at political event for possible next VP" - yes, super reason to not vote for a candidate. Certainty blows economic or social arguments out of the water.

And indeed, Ron Paul, its not like things need to be regulated or people need services because this is Murica and people should fend for themselves.

Yep. Anyone who supports the Security Theater/TSA doesn't get a vote from me.

Sorry, I prefer not to have strangers put their hands in my pants.

Sounds like they're doing this for both candidates. Ugh. I hate the TSA so much.

Shelving a candidate based on one policy? That is political immaturity at its finest...

Perhaps you should've read the entire thread. You missed where I said

"As if you needed another reason, there's one more for not voting Romney/Ryan in November."

There are several reasons I won't be voting Romney/Ryan. Supporting the TSA is simply one of them.

It's fine if you don't have a problem with your rights being violated, but some of us do.
