When people desire security over liberty

I've heard a lot of talk about safety and security lately. When it comes to the security of our homeland, I think of the poster that can be found at powwows, rodeos, and Native festivals. It shows a historical photo of Apache warrior Geronimo and his fellow warriors with the text "Homeland Security since 1492".

I'm sure if Geronimo were alive today, he'd have a solution.

Presidents or prime ministers are not some kind of supreme ruler or king, unless they are dictators or tyrants. While it may be part of the president or prime minister's job to keep us safe, it's not his primary responsibility...
