    I would have liked to see a choice of all of the above.

    Let's ask an expert on the subject:

    "A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons." --Hillary Rodham Clinton
    "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections." --Mitt Romney

    So hard to choose. The NSA, TSA, and DHS should be abolished, the others should see drastic reduction in responsibility and power.

    Re: Which Of These Federal Departments Should Be Abolished?

    Like I said, I'd still need to know if abolishing the agency means every part of it is completely gone from government or if it's duties will be moved into another agency or what? Do the agencies under a department go away if the department goes away?

    If you get rid of DHS does that mean that the Secret Service, for instance, goes away as well? Does it move under another department? Or does it go away but another agency takes over it's duties? If you get rid of Health and Human Services does the National Institute for Health and the FDA remain because you're only getting rid of the department, or do they go on the chopping block as well? If you get rid of TSA does that mean we remove all forms of federal law enforcement within aircrafts from the governments role since the Federal Air Marshal Service is an office within TSA?

    There's a lot of questions to be able to actually answer this in any real way

    You don't think the DEA should be abolished?

    Oh, it's on the very bottom. I'd get rid of that too. Not to say that I'd be looking to legalize all drugs, but rather that the enforcement can be brought into proper channels and police forces.

    every one should be abolished, plus many more that are not on the list.
