(NaturalNews) It's being sold to us as a program that will "allow" us the kind of freedom at an airport that Americans used to have - the freedom from being felt up, hassled, degraded and debased by some government agency, just for the "privilege" of traveling.

But what the Transportation Security Administration is really doing with its "PreCheck" program - which is aimed at expediting a traveler's screening process - is gathering millions of sets of fingerprints in another government effort designed to strip away even more of your constitutional rights.

Per The Associated Press:

The government is expanding the ways airline passengers can enroll in an expedited screening program that allows travelers to leave on their shoes, light outerwear and belts and keep laptop computers in cases at security checkpoints.

Under the Transportation Security Administration's Precheck program, only travelers who were members of the frequent flyer programs of some air carriers were eligible for expedited screening. On Friday, TSA Administrator John Pistole said beginning later this year U.S. citizens will be able to enroll online or visit an enrollment site to provide identification, fingerprints and an $85 enrollment fee.

About 12 million people are currently enrolled in the program. Pistole said he expects about another 3 million people to enroll before the end of the year.

Give us your info and we'll let you pass

So not only will you be required to give the TSA your fingerprints - where they will, of course, be kept forever - you have to pay for your right to travel freely in your own country. Doesn't sound so "free" after all, does it?

And what's more, remember that this agency - which is staffed with pedophiles, thieves, weirdos and various other criminals - has really done little to enhance our safety. The "anti-terror" measures the agency enforces have not identified or caught a single terrorist "despite expansive funding and highly invasive techniques that violate our fundamental rights," InfoWars.com notes. The site also adds this about the PreCheck program:

Under PreCheck, you are required to not only present your fingerprints to the TSA in person and pay a fee of $85, but the agency is also looking to gather all forms of your data as well - which reports state includes your web history and online data. With the help of a third party organization, the TSA seeks to 'pre-screen' (think pre-crime) individuals based on their activity in order to determine if they are worthy of bypassing the most minimal of security checkpoints.

So in other words, though there is no evidence that American citizens, by and large, have posed much of a terrorist or security threat to their own country, the TSA is still requiring us to subject ourselves to the humiliation of pat-downs, feel-ups and invasive x-rays, unless, of course, we want to give the agency every last detail about our lives.

And what's more, there is no evidence the TSA is even worried that our personal data would be stolen or misused, according to a FedBizOpps posting [www.fbo.gov]:

TSA is weighing a contract that would hire private screeners to parse an applicant's consumer data, such web browsing histories, for signs of danger before admission into express inspection programs.

Let's just ditch the TSA instead

"Private screeners?" As in, private contractors? Who screens them? How many private contractors have violated Americans' personal, private information already?

The entire PreCheck program is "essentially like openly allowing the NSA to come in and mine your data, but this time you're also handing it over to the DHS," InfoWars.com observed.

How about this for a better idea - get rid of the TSA altogether for the massive government boondoggle bureaucracy that it is, go back to private screeners and employ some serious anti-terrorism security tactics and techniques that a) don't violate basic rights; and b) are actually effective?

We could ask the Israelis. They know how to do airport security.
