Now Is The Time for Political Action !
Many federal and state legislators are now learning the real facts about the TSA. With appearances by people on TV and in other media complaining about the TSA, the creation of a coalition of states concerned about the TSA's illegal and abusive treatment of their citizens, and a growing, active group of people protesting the TSA procedures, now is the time for YOU to join and make a difference.
Frankly, it is very difficult for one person to make a difference standing in line at an airport - especially when you have NO CHOICE and are coerced into "putting up" with the security procedures. Either let them "strip search" you electronically or subject you to an invasive, inappropriate groping of your body. If you don't "submit", you don't fly - and risk losing your job or visiting loved ones in a timely manner.
By joining Freedom To Travel USA, you will be joining a growing coalition of concerned citizens who understand what made America a great country - our individual freedoms recorded in the US Constitution, our history of fighting to protect these freedoms and to give others in the world a chance to realize these ideals, and our overall American culture of individualism, justice, and fairness along with a fierce sense of working for the common good and achieving great goals such as putting a man on the moon.
It is often said,"United we stand, divided we fall." You could continue to be "divided" and alone at an airport security line, or perhaps silently resign yourself to never flying again if you don't absolutely have to. Or you can make an individual choice to join the coalition and stand together with others who share your viewpoint.
There is no political profile required to join. We are Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents. We are liberals, moderates, and conservatives. We are common citizens and well-known personalities. But we stand together with one common goal - fight the TSA's illegal and abusive tactics, and restore the vitality and confidence that the "threat of terrorism" has damaged through the actions of the TSA.
What Are We Doing?
First, we are working to build a coalition of groups and people with the same common goals. There has been a great effort in a short amount of time, and the more that the we all work together, the more we can accomplish.
Second, it has become apparent that legislative action needs to be proactively supported. We need to support the brave politicians who are standing up for common decency and the US Constitution, and help grow their numbers through education and dialogue.
There are two major, parallel efforts around legislative action. We will be proactively reaching out to EVERY SINGLE FEDERAL legislator to discuss our Information Kit, find out where they stand on our political goals, and identify common legislative goals that can be attained.
At the State Level, we will actively work to support and expand the individual state efforts to fight the TSA. Ideally, there should be a "Common TSA Framework" which is a template legislation that can be adopted by every state and modified to each state's particular codified laws.

The most important thing is to support the State Leadership Committees when they ask you to write an old-fashioned letter, call a specific legislator or send an email, or to attend a state meeting with a legislator. We understand that not everyone can do everything - after all, you have a life to live - but through very targeted actions, everyone can participate as time permits and together we will win.
