“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” H. L. Mencken
Are we just dealing with political hobgoblins? Is this all that is going on with the so-called terrorist threats of these last 14 years? Is that the real reason the Republicans don’t want to fund Homeland Security since it is just a waste of money? Is that what is going on? Surely they would support the funding if they thought it necessary, wouldn’t they?
