Homeland Security vs Natural Disaster

One year after Hurricane Katrina, and five years after 9/11, our nation is still struggling to rebuild and recover.

Do you think the government should spend more money on anti-terrorism measures or on averting and remediating natural disasters?

12%  Anti-terrorism. I wouldn't feel safe if less money were spent on preventing terrorist activity.
15%  Natural disasters. Hurricane Katrina clearly showed that our country is not adaquately prepared to deal with major disasters.
21%  Neither. I think the government should be worrying more about other national issues, such as universal health care or securing our borders against illegal aliens.
53%  Both. We need to prevent all kinds of disasters, even if it means raising taxes or cutting other budgets.

Prepare your family for a disaster by creating a Disaster Supply Kit and practicing Emergency Preparedness at Home. Talk to your children about Terrorism and War to help calm their fears.
