Should the Transportation Security Administration Be Abolished?
If you believe that the Transportation Security Administration should be abolished, then you may want to consider signing the Petition to Abolish the TSA on WhiteHouse.gov, which at the time this was posted has already collected almost 25,500 signatures since September 22, 2011.
The goal for this petition was originally 5,000 signatures.
The petition states the following:
“The Transportation Security Administration has been one of the largest, most expensive and most visible blunders of the post-9-11 homeland security reformation. It has violated countless constitutional rights of average Americans, caused miserable and expensive delays in an already-overburdened air travel system, and allowed multiple known instances of harassment, theft, extortion and sexual abuse by its employees. It has failed approximately 70% of undercover efficacy tests, and for all its excesses, has been unable to catch even a single terrorist since its creation. In our current economic situation, we can no longer afford to continue wasting taxpayer dollars on this kafkaesque embarrassment. Let us instead invest in saner, more effective solutions.”
