Think About It

Ever since the government started using the word homeland, it has really bugged me. What really bugs me more is that it doesn't seem to bother anyone else. So let's take a look at who have been the users of that term. Mussalini, Hitler, Stalin. The term was heavily used by Hitler to sway the people to his way of thinking. It was all for the protection of the homeland don't ya know? Stalin might have started it but it was something heard throughout the entire existence of the USSR, United Soviet Socialist Republic for those too young to remember. It is a communist/socialist/fascist term. Now do you understand why the use of that term over and over bothers me when it applies to the home of the free and the land of the brave. I highly doubt Jefferson or Washington would ever have used that term and I think they would be appalled at its frequent use now. The term has no place in a constitutional republic (we are not a democracy). So does it make your skin crawl or are you one of those that think it's just for the good of the "homeland"? Just something to think about. Have a good day, Kat

I had not thought of the use of Homeland quite that way. So it is going on my list of skin crawling government changes against the people!
