Who is saying that we should get rid of security? There is a difference between security and the airport police state we have now. I don't think people should be flying on a plane covered in their own urine in the name of "safety"
and security has been modified to account for those attracts
we take our shoes off now and can't take canisters that hide box cutters into the cabin
the new scanners can see if there is another underwear bomber
do you not want policies to be updated as new methods are discovered? Should the security stay stagnant?
you are arguing to get rid of security: "if its not 100% whats the point?"
a police state is a situation where people have no choice, people do not have to fly.
a police state is a situation where people have no knowledge of what will confront them, the TSA advertises these changes to give people the chance to not go to the airport
flying is not a right, it is a privilege, and if you don't like the requirements for this privilege, make sure to vote for politicians who run on a "decrease security" platform
