DHS was not created to protect the people of the homeland but to protect the government from the people of the homeland!
How long has government been our enemy? According to our founders it always has been. That’s the reason the Constitution and Bill of Rights sought to limit the power of government!
Government is like a chained beast, you loose the chains at your own peril. It’s like a fire, useful until you lose control of it and then it consumes you and all around you!
I’m positive our founders would be horrified at the power of the federal government today, more so than the government they separated from!
