If the federal government is so concerned about the threat of terrorism, then why is it doing so little to protect our most critical infrastructure? The control freaks in charge of our “national security” seem to be absolutely obsessed with watching us and taking away our liberties and freedoms, but meanwhile they are leaving many of the most important potential targets virtually unguarded. It is almost as if they are not even concerned that terrorists might attack them. For example, as you will see below, not a single one of our 104 commercial nuclear reactors would be able to handle a “maximum credible terrorist attack”. The federal government also refuses to spend the money necessary to protect our electrical grid from being fried by a massive EMP blast even though the earth had a “near miss” just a few weeks ago. And the Obama administration continues to leave the U.S. border with Mexico completely wide open even though it has been heavily documented that Hezbollah and other terror organizations are extremely active in Mexico. The federal government needs to quit spending so much money listening to our phone calls and feeling us up at our airports and they need to start spending money on the security matters that will really make a difference in the long run.
