You’ve Experienced TSA Screenings, but You Won’t Believe This!

I told Congress to “Abolish the TSA” using's Campaign.


Please do the same. You may borrow from or copy this letter…


The TSA finds new ways to assault our dignity. It's not just the passenger screenings (…


* During a random luggage search, the TSA opened an urn of cremated remains, and let them spill all over the bag's contents.

* It ignored the victim's complaint for two years.




* Negligent TSA employees weren't held accountable.

* No compensation or apology was offered to the victim, who has now sued the TSA.


The TSA's negligence was bad enough. Its arrogance in the aftermath is even worse.


If a private airline’s security treated me this way, I’d reject that airline. But I have NO CHOICE but to put up with the TSA’s coercive monopoly. This demonstrates I have more power as a consumer, than I do as a voter. Well…




Airlines and airports do not want terrorist attacks. Allow them to compete with each other to implement effective security policies that also treat us with RESPECT.


Restore competition. Allow human dignity.

Most people reading this can recall when you accompanied a loved one right to the terminal, and then you watched their plane pull away from the gate. Those days have been stolen from you. And you are NOT any safer now.


Yet there are many groups merely calling for “reform” of the TSA. Downsize DC gives you a principled voice — joined with thousands of others. We're not asking for mere tinkering at the edges. We say, “Abolish!”


Right now, Downsize DC needs your support. If you value hard-hitting, principled messages like this, along with a tool to directly deny consent to Congress, please consider starting a monthly pledge, right now.
