  • Three Ways Congress Can Improve Homeland Security

    Dr. James Jay Carafano explains three simple ways Congress can improve Homeland Security. This is an issue that effects everyone and every member of Congress should be interested in it. It also effects every level of Government – Local, State, and Federal. Currently, there are 85 Committees overseeing the Department of Homeland Security which makes it extremely difficult to get things accomplished. Congress also has no way of overseeing how the federal agencies work together. The way that it is set up now is disjointed and needs to be reformed for our safety.

    James Jay Carafano and David Heyman released a study today on how Homeland Security can be reformed for the better.

It is a sad thing for World politics to contenue on such an antiquated course of action/ that requires the death of innocent peoples, for overlooked choices- that are just decisions that no-one/ or organized body can approach, and complete their job in the first place.Why arn't theses decisions being made today to protect our nation?, And why are we facing monetary problems effecting every American?Someone better start cleaning their glasses, because as we sit today the rest of the World absoulutely not waiting on what they are going to do…

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
