But let's talk about the issues you brought up, eh"
Patriot Act: I think it is useful and necessary.
Homeland Security: Again, useful and necessary.
The problem I have with these two issues isn't that they were created, but that they've been used to increase the size, scope and power of the government. Homeland Security, for example, was designed to consolidate all our intelligence agencies under one roof. It's gone beyond that to the point that we have TSA agents doing their thing at sporting events and even on the sidewalks of our streets.
Unnecessary warring: Not sure exactly what you are referring to here, but you seem to have a very simplistic attitude toward violent conflict in the world. Let's take killing bin Laden for example...Do you think it would have been possible to find him and kill him without the resources of established U.S. installations in the area?
