A President Romney Should Shutter Dept. Of Homeland Security (“DHS has the capacity to be to America’s citizens what the Gestapo was to the people of Hitler’s Germany …”)

Even the name of the department conjures up memories of Nazi Germany. “Homeland” sounds, to me, rather like “The Fatherland.” Speaking it’s name aloud just makes my skin crawl.

Look. DHS has the capacity to be to America’s citizens what the Gestapo was to the people of Hitler’s Germany and to the people of the countries occupied by the Nazis.

 

 

Yes, I do realize the majority of Americans today have little (if any) memory of that era.

For those of us who DO remember it, all too well, we DO feel an obligation to warn the generations following us when we see OUR government drifting in the direction of that authoritarian, tyrannical, regime.

 

Consider this a warning!

 

Every time the government creates another “policing/intelligence agency” American citizens lose even more freedom and liberty.

 

Think about it a moment. That new department must justify its reason for existence and it must keep the money flowing from the treasury into its coffers. So, it feels an obligation to do something—and then find new and bolder things to do to try and make itself indispensable to the US government.

 

Hey. It’s the nature of the beast. It’s the way government agencies live and continue to survive. They grow bigger and bigger taking up more space in our daily lives— until we are darn near smothered with their omnipresence.

 

Sometimes they remind me of a line from one of Ray Stevens old songs about Santa Claus: “They’re everywhere! They’re everywhere!”

 

Stick you head out your door—- and “Smile! You’re on candid Camera!” Our entire lives are being monitored, recorded, and filed away in some data dump warehouse owned by the federal government. So much data has been stored that the government is building newer and MUCH LARGER facilities to not only store more data on you (us), but to acquire even MORE info on the citizens of the US.

 

Look. I KNOW I am but a tiny voice “crying out here in the wilderness” with my opinion pieces. But—you are wrong if you think I don’t suspect the government already monitors my scribbling. One would have to be an utter fool to believe otherwise.

 

Heck, I’ve been on the government’s radar at least since the Nixon Administration when my friends and neighbors were contacted by federal agents gathering info on me. See, I was a card carrying member of the press in those days. The press was highly suspect by the Nixon Administration and a lot, if not most, of us were investigated.

 

It bugs the hell out of me, quite frankly.

 

So, let’s see how many intelligence agencies the US has—that the government will admit to, anyway:……………..

 

EXCERPT!!!!! !!!!!
