18. Not a flame, but a comment.
I paid for the privilege when I bought the ticket. The question here is; "Should Americans have the freedom to travel without inspection of their papers and effects by an agent of the Federal Government?"

Freedom of travel is a quite different thing is this day and age. In the time of the founders, if you wanted to travel you had to walk or ride your horse. Now you have to use a mechanical means of conveyance that few can purchase for themselves. Should freedom to travel be restricted to those wealthy enough to own an aircraft or an automobile?
