Government Permission Will Be Required To Travel

http://www.rense.com/general87/govv.htm

Starting this year, Americans will have to get government approval to travel by air. As Privacy Journal revealed last fall, henceforth "Permission Now Needed to Travel Within U.S." Getting a reservation and checking-in for air travel will soon require Transportation Security Administration authorization. That permission is by no means assured: For example, if your name matches a "no-fly" list, even mistakenly, you can be denied the right to a reserve a seat on a flight. If your name is on a "selectee" list, you and your possessions will be searched more thoroughly before you can board. What is going on here?

All travelers will need government OK in order to board a flight, or take a cruise. What the government can allow one day, it can forbid the next.

Protecting air safety is essential, but professional screening at airports already provides for it. Giving the TSA as an official agency the additional authority to decide who gets to go where reaches beyond safety into overextended governmental power. This newly minted "Secure Flight" rule fundamentally imbalances long-standing citizens' rights both to travel and to be left alone. If your name appears among hundreds of thousands on "watchlists," you assert that the government should not require ID to fly, you don't want to reveal your date of birth for concern about identity theft, or you don't choose to declare your gender, you can stay home.

By combining the requirement for government photo IDs in order to fly with checking government watchlists including potentially every passenger, "Secure Flight" puts the federal government into the business of licensing travel. All travelers will need government OK in order to board a flight, or take a cruise. What the government can allow one day, it can forbid the next. All things considered, isn't this a higher-tech and later-day version of South African domestic passports or eastern European checkpoints? In fact, because of the high technological capacity of the U.S. version, aren't its implications for travel control of plane, train, bus and subway travel much more far reaching? It's incredible that something like this is happening relatively unrecognized in America.

C4L had an article about this the other day.

This needs to be nipped in the bud. If you are on the list or even have the same name you have no redress. Too bad.
Holdren- AG wants it passed if you are on the list you cannot own a gun. Then if you have bad credit you are on the list.
Do you see where this is going?

JUST STOP

Just stop $%&*ing traveling by plane and let the SOB's go out of business.

No one here should ever...

I am taking a 2,500 mile R/T

I am taking a 2,500 mile R/T drive to see my parents and relatives because I refuse to lick the boots of the TSA thugs. Our Gubermint is out of control folks. Today I handed out 3 freedom to fascism dvd's to complete strangers I was able to strike up a conversation with. We need to do more! I am going to tape Ron Paul signs on my van and add all of the bumperstickers I've bought recently. It's getting seriously weird out here. Let's hope we can wake up more before it is too late!

Wait

did everyone miss this??? I mean requiring ID is one thing, but saying you can't travel is another and we might all be on the list, who knows? And if you stand up for your rights, you're not going anywhere!!
