Isn't it the cia/military's job to defend the country? They should at least rename the military to the dept. of Nation Construction. It's funny how fun with naming creates an entire new bureaucracy for us to sink money into.

The gov says we have to blow up the Iraqi infrastructure because of terrorism. Then we give American companies huge contracts to rebuild what was destroyed. Lucky for them, the terrorists keep blowing up what they build. The less they defend these building projects, the more they profit from us, not to mention the lives of the iraqis.

Homeland Security

The creation of a new term?"homeland security"?to separate national defense from international military adventurism is telling. In reality, homeland security is the only legitimate goal of US military policy.

At present, US troops operate in more than 130 countries around the globe. We've "guaranteed the security" of Japan and Germany for nearly 60 years, and of South Korea for 50.

From Bogota to Baghdad, from Manila to Medellin, the US military presence operates day and night, interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, intervening in arguments BETWEEN other countries, and generally making new enemies where none existed before rather than operating in defense of the United States.

As president, the first contribution I can make to homeland security is the withdrawal of US troops from foreign soil and the adoption of the foreign policy advocated by Thomas Jefferson: "Honest friendship with all nations, entangling alliances with none."

Beyond that, I propose to end immigration restrictions for peaceful individuals who come to America to work, study and live. Those who are not criminals or terrorists should be free to enter the US at any Customs and Immigration station. This will end the scourge of illegal infiltration along our borders, which provides cover for those who would harm the United States to enter.

Under no circumstances can "homeland security" be legitimately construed as a reason to violate basic rights or civil liberties. The PATRIOT Act and related legislation has done little or nothing to enhance our security, and much to damage it.

I don't like his views on immigration.
