Well, I suppose it's worth a chuckle. But as far as the socialism accusation goes, does that mean you think Republicans somehow operate differently? (Disclosure: I'm not partisan)I mean, they've created the biggest government we've ever had in our history - not to mention the most self-destructive. Homeland Security itself is an amalgamation of 300+ other agencies! And how about agricultural subsidies, they continue to flow in steadily increasing numbers. Let's be real, the Republicans are just as "socialist" as the Democrats, despite their hollow "free-market" rhetoric they love to spout.Do you believe we live in an entirely free market? Of course we don't; and precisely because we've learned from our mistakes. The very fact that the Fed controls the amount of money printed and sets interest rates fundamentally defies the notion of a free-market. Get it? Well, I'm going to quit writing because I don't know if you're even going to post this.Cheers,barmakid
Well, DHS was created because of legacy of a DEMOCRATIC president (i.e Clinton) who didn't do enough to stop the terrorists to reach the US in 1990s and therefore President Bush had to do what it took to defend the country. Plus, DHS, as I understand is to employ all federal and state law enforcement/intel assets to counter terrorism so it is not a new creation but it is a new concept in defending the Americans against a major terror attack and it seems it has worked well so far. Kudos to Mr. Bush for it!
