Ron Paul for airport freedom

Homeland Security Theater cartoonist, Bill Forster, does a shout out to the Congressman (and Presidential hopeful) who is a consistent critic of TSA policies:


One way Ron Paul has tried to support passengers' rights is by proposing anti-groping and anti-scanning legislation at the federal level:
No law of the United States shall be construed to confer any immunity for a Federal employee or agency or any individual or entity that receives Federal funds, who subjects an individual to any physical contact (including contact with any clothing the individual is wearing), x-rays, or millimeter waves, or aids in the creation of or views a representation of any part of an individual’s body covered by clothing as a condition for such individual to be in an airport or to fly in an aircraft. The preceding sentence shall apply even if the individual or the individual’s parent, guardian, or any other individual gives consent.
Of course, not enough of the other crooks in Washington actually care about Americans enough to pass this law.
