Losing Our Rights Through Fear Mongering

Well, a disappointing Thanksgiving where travelers failed to protest, defending their rights, protecting them from the TSA's illegal search and seizure.  We are now exposing ourselves to additional radiation with levels really unknown unless you believe the company that makes them (if so you've never seen  class action lawsuit commercials against drug companies that produce drugs that people are dying  or are sick from).  Lets assume the radiation levels are nominal (a little more can never hurt right), you still have an issue that the pictures of your body naked are in the hands of people other than you meaning your picture could end up on some website at some point.  

Now you can say well it protects us against the dangers of flying, well apparently that is not true as those that would do you harm have already found their way around these scanners (so your just doing it for fun) and the scans really didn't find much more than what was already being done in the first place.  What has been accomplished is a violation of your rights, the 4th amendment covers illegal search and seizure.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
By tolerating these searches and not voicing our opinion to stop them, we are giving up our rights in the name of terror.  If we don't stop this, then what is next, as now a precedent has been established.  Write your congressman, governor and senator and tell them you don't want this personal violation to continue.
