Ron Paul on ‘Opt-Out Day’: ‘If we tolerate’ the TSA, ‘there’s something wrong with us’

Popular Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul has a message for the American people: If you tolerate the new, invasive Transportation Security Administration procedures, then maybe you deserve it.

“This is such an affront, so much out in the open,” he said during a Tuesday radio interview. “Government being so bold as to maul us in public and say they’re doing it for our interests. If we tolerate this, there’s something wrong with us. It’s probably not fair to say this because so many people don’t deserve it but — we deserve some of this stuff if we don’t do something about it.”

Paul was speaking with Austin, Texas talk show host Alex Jones, a fellow libertarian whose programming tends to focus on police issues, the drivers of globalization and conspiracy theories.
