LRC Blog: Conservatives and the TSA
We. Are. Screwed.
Sorry, but I don't consider the warmongers and the Heritage Foundation to be conservatives. Establishment republicans, yes. But true conservatives they are not.
Not conservatives nor libertarians. Just the somewhat-to-the-right version of the other elitist group.
Carafano admits the TSA is a "massive, bloated bureaucracy", so the solution is to turn it into an agency making aviation policy and regulations?
We already have a government agency tasked with that at 800 Independence Ave. in DC that's within walking distance of the Heritage Foundation offices. You can't miss it - it has a sign out front and everything - Federal Aviation Administration.
The Heritage Foundation brought us the 1st Gulf War. Their advice was instrumental in forming that failed policy, in much the same way that the Southern Poverty Law Center has brought us the worst of the DHS's excesses during the Obama Administration.
Both "think tanks" are the enemies of all but the top 1%. Whatever they advocate, we should beware.
