Homeland Security in the Land of the Free

The horror stories about the Transportation Security Administration are indisputable. In the post 911 environment, civil liberties routinely ignored or eliminated, become a mere memory in a country that once prided itself as the beacon of freedom for the entire world. The TSA is part of the Department of Homeland Security. FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is also an agency of DHS. The public relation spin for the purpose of such authorities is to protect citizens and guard the nation. The reality is that DHS bureaus have the same mission, keep the government safe from potential real or imaginary threats. Interpret threats to mean anyone who opposes the establishment regime, now known as, the military-industrial-financial-security complex.

DHS is the third largest Cabinet department, after the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs. A Department of Homeland Security site acknowledges a FY 2012 Budget of $56,941,507,000, in the latest testimony of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano before Congress,

"The Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 Budget for DHS is $58.6 billion in total budget authority, $48.7 billion in gross discretionary funding, and $39.5 billion in net discretionary funding. Net discretionary budget authority is 0.5 percent below the FY 2012 enacted level. An additional $5.5 billion for the Disaster Relief Fund (DRF) is provided under the disaster relief cap adjustment, pursuant to the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA)."

Wikipedia cites a much higher amount, in fiscal year 2011 it, had allocated a budget of $98.8 billion and spent, net, $66.4 billion, with more than 200,000 employees.

Fancy headlines to keep Ron Paul stay in the race not for anything else but for the money. He will not make it there, but handlers can still make a lot of money and whistle their way to the bank!

Here are some of the questions that run in people’s mind: Is Ron Paul’s ankle chained to continue running against his will? Are those making money kind of hold him "hostage" for as long as they want to keep him there while the money is still coming?

If the answers are "yes", then those "supporters" from the "lunatic fringe" and investors that make a profit out of Ron Paul's no-win-win candidacy, are ruthless. Using Ron Paul to generate a campaign fund either through ads or donations that reportedly go to their pockets is un-Christian, to say the least. They just don't want him to quit while the money is still coming in. They just whip their old tired mule to move on and on before the TV camera even though this heartless imposition could no longer be physically and spiritually endured by a very tired old man. You can see it in Ron Paul's face – how he looks so tired and ready to quit anytime, but he is still there as if he couldn’t leave even if he wants to.

This human exploitation is slavery we only see in movies, but not in our real world in Texas where Ron Paul and I are from, and yet I can't believe it is happening right before my eyes!

Ron Paul Money Bomb Update: Total Donated Thus Far: $830,000.00 – since Thursday, May 17th. There is still time, to contribute to Ron Paul’s Campaign to Restore America Now.

Ron Paul Liberty Quote:

“America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist.”
—Ron Paul
