    there is nothing wrong with the TSA itself, what people don't like is the new security methods.

    however, there is no reason to believe such methods would not be enforced today if the TSA didn't exist.

    Indeed not, but having it as a government agency as it is makes it easier to do so. There was room for improvement, but given the probabilities and potential increases in "safety", I think we can draw the line well before wasting all sorts of money on millimeter wave scanners and such.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Really? I understand you are trying to say airplanes are a common target for terrorists, the problem is that they aren't actually that common and there have clearly been more than two modern attacks which haven't dealt with airplanes.

    If the TSA didn't exist, and it wasn't replaced by any other govt. agency, I don't see how they'd exist for long - since the TSA mandates their use -> take them out of the equation...
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
