Undoing Homeland Security

Undoing Homeland Security

Homeland Security is one of the biggest scam ever perpetrated by the U.S. government on American citizens. It preys on people's fears and it uses txpayer money to whip up more fears. The Department of Homeland Security could more accurately be titled the Ministry of Fear. Billions of dollars will be spent on this boondoggle with no money going to educate people on how to think critically about their fear and their security. What's more, the Department of Homeland Security can do little to stop the few terrorist attacks that may happen and does nothing to reduce hostility towards Americans which is shared around the world.

Americans need to understand that they are in little danger from terrorism, even if the number of terrorist attacks increased on American soil. In fact, Americans are in more danger from domestic terrorism organized by right groups and the American government, than they are from terrorism organized from outside the country. Even if there was one car bombing a week in various places around the United States, 99.9% of Americans would not be affected. You are more likely to be killed by lightning than you are to be injured or killed by a terrorist attack. You may have noticed that the Department of Homeland Security is not building a national network of lightning rods to protect Americans from the imminent threat of lightning strikes. And every American is more likely to be injured or killed in a traffic accident than from just about every other risk that we face on a daily basis. The Office of Homeland Security is doing nothing in regards to traffic safety.
