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!

Either dissolve the DHS/TSA or develop strong guide lines for these organization. Also remove those who are heading up both of them, and while your at it fire Eric Holder. If you have it in your minds that I am a racist just forget it. For one thing there is but one race and that's the human race. For another thing I happen to be a white man and my wife is a black woman. Also I am a veteran with22 tears in and don't appreciate being considered a potentual terrorist. I will still fight for the constiution and this country against all enemies both foreign and domestic. I sincerely hope that none of you fit into these categories.

Stop spying on and violating the American People! Restore the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, end the Federal Reserve Bank, restore sound money which is gold and silver coin, end the New World (Dis)Order! Ron Paul for President in 2012! End the TSA and DHS! End the misnamed "Patriot" Act. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, not the Patriot Act!
