    Is there any good reason for keeping the DHS? Conservatives should be against it because it is wasteful big government. Liberals should be against it because it violates civil liberties. I can't think of any group who should be for it, other than perhaps contractors who benefit financially from it.

    I think we can all agree it's time to elminate DHS. Huge waste of money. How many attacks have they stopped?

    Wishful thinking. Government doesn't shrink, nor does it relinquish power.

    Exactly. Once any federal agency is created, one of its top priorities is to justify not only its existence, but also its growth. It's the ultimate pyramid scheme.
