Tell Congress: End DHS Police State Measures

The Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration are targeting innocent American citizens and destroying our freedom!

Vice President Joe Biden describes Conservatives as "acting like terrorists," and clearly the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agrees, because their recently released terrorist-watch video "See Something, Say Something" has revealed a new terror threat: Americans!

The 10-minute video is filled with scenarios in which Americans are the real terror threats, and then advises Americans to not report on the suspicious activities of foreigners and those who speak a foreign language, but rather, to report the odd behaviors of American citizens.

The DHS video also displays newspaper clippings of Americans who have committed acts of terror, such as Ted Kaczynski the Unabomber, and Timothy McVey, one of the men involved in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Yet, the video fails to show pictures of the 19 9/11 hijackers, or members of al-Qaeda, Hamas and Hezbollah, or members of other foreign terrorist organizations.

Is this simply a methodical effort by the DHS to be politically correct? Many say "no," because the DHS has gone out of its way to cast a shadow on middle-America by creating scenarios in which every suspected terrorist is an American citizen.

Unfortunately, these profiling tactics aren't new: according to documents written by the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) in 2009, if you display the Gadsden flag, or consider yourself to be Libertarian or a supporter of the liberty movement, then you just might be the biggest threat to our national security.

This is a prime example of an imposing police-state, where the government tasks citizens with the job of spying on their neighbors, instead of using the government's resources to protect patriotic Americans from the real terror threats.

TSA shakedown

Young children and grandmothers also seem to be on the Transportation and Security Administration's (TSA) radar as suspected terrorists.

A Tennessee woman was arrested by police at the Nashville International Airport for refusing to go through the TSA's airport screening machine, and for refusing to allow her daughter to be patted-down by a TSA agent.

According to a police report, the mother told TSA agents that she didn't want her daughter to be "touched inappropriately" or have her "crotch grabbed." And since she refused to allow the screening, she was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

The mother was also prevented from taking a video of the incident on her mobile phone.

How much further will you allow the government to push you around before you stand up and tell every member of Congress to protect your Fourth Amendment rights?

Sign the petition and send letters to your lawmakers and demand they END the police-state measures -- even dismantle the DHS and TSA and let the free market take care of those security needs, rather than the ever-growing federal government!

The TSA has really overstepped their authority with this case~ The TSA needs to be dismantled; ordinary scanning of purses, etc are adequate - with no need for the x-rays, which are harmful, and accumulative to the body ! No one has a right to touch another person inappropriately in their privates. That Tn. Mother had the right to not allow an inappropriate pat down of her child ! Enough government " bullying" of American citizens !!

The last flight I took had a security delay due to TSA confusion on what to do about a 6 year old girls' balloon. The answer was to pop it. apparently due to a new emerging threat of lighter - than - helium completely transparent explosives being carried onto aircraft by extremist first graders..... ooooooor maybe the TSA is worthless and should cease to exist.

Compromising our privacy for so-called "security" is simply unconstitutional. The whole agency must go!

You can see by just watching the cop shows on TV that police no longer try to establish a relationship with the public. They have become brutal in their actions when their is often no reason. When I was a kid I was not afraid of the police, but looked at them with trust and respect, and felt safe. Now as a 57 year old citizen, I am afraid of them and do not want any interactions with them. It is very sad how things have changed, and it all starts with bad leadership at the top.
