There are some issues that should transcend left vs. right, conservative vs. liberal, and libertarianism vs. statism. This is one of those issues.
It doesn’t matter where you come from on the political spectrum, all Americans should oppose this disgusting and corrupt behavior.
How long will you and I continue to accept this?
TSA has once again enhanced (in a big way) their security measures. When you go through airport security now, prepare for a full-body scanner or receive a very intimate pat down from a complete stranger. Choose your option or you do not fly.
Be ready, because more and more people are being called over to the the strip-search machine. And based on the steady growth of big-brother at the airport, I am willing to bet that it is only a matter of time before EVERYONE goes through the the full-body scanner. “Ultimately, the agency plans to have the new machines replace metal detectors at all of the roughly 2,000 airport checkpoints.” [source]
Let me show you your NEW options for airport security.
First, you will be offered the full-body scanner. And, no, you will not be told why you were chosen for this enhanced screening. You will obey or you will not fly.
Here is a picture of what you will be subjected to:
Look! Look long and hard at this picture! (click to see enlarged image)

If you refuse to expose yourself to an armed government agent, you only have one other option — the full-body groping.

Quite frankly, it’s gross. It’s disturbing. And it’s everything Americans should detest.
Young Americans for Liberty is going to look into more ways to defend your basic human right to privacy. Fondling grandma and your little sister does not make you safer.
