Would the Founding Fathers have approved of an agency like the TSA or the tactics it uses? Definitely not. There are far less personally invasive ways to keep air travel safe and secure (just ask the Israelis), but people here choose not to push for them, because while they're getting anally violated by some TSA agent, they feel safer in the process.
If you or I did to someone what TSA does to thousands of people each day, we'd be registered sex offenders.
There are mountains of evidence that show TSA performs demonstrable harm every day.
Conversely, there is precious little evidence that TSA is effective; especially when you factor in the human and financial toll it takes.--
