Rand Paul

In regards to the Rand Paul v. TSA issue, Article 1, Section 6 says:

The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

So Mr. Paul, talk to your lawyer and have at the TSA for violating your Constitutional right as a Senator. If we let them get away with things like this pretty soon it will be "may I see your papers, please" as we walk down the street. They have the population cowed now so if the legislature bows to the TSA/ DHS on this issue there is nothing they won't subject us to.
