Ron Paul: Cut out this Soviet-style nonsense

With a week to go until the Thanksgiving travel peak and Americans' anger continuing to rise over heightened airport-security measures, a U.S. congressman launched legislation today to end what he calls Soviet-style searches by the American government.
NEW YORK - OCTOBER 22: A TSA officer demonstrates what the images form the Advanced Imaging Technology unit look like at John F. Kennedy International Airport's Terminal 8 passenger security checkpoint on October 22, 2010 in the Queens borough of New York City. The new backscatter X-ray full-body scanners, which are optional, can see through clothing and will screen passengers for metallic and non-metallic threats including explosives.

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, introduced the Air Traveler Dignity Act to protect Americans from physical and emotional abuse by federal Transportation Security Administration employees conducting screenings at the nation's airports.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks Legalize...just

Thanks Legalize...just another story about the same thing that has been posted. However, WND picking it up and pushing it out to mainstream Republicans IS important.

The more hits this story gets...the better.
