Bush didn’t create it with this in mind - he created it to stop another 9.11 - He didn’t set up a system for Walmart Security Guard types to be on the look-out for conservatives, children to molest and places for folks with authority problems to throw their weight around. Nope that was done by Obama and Janet - two totalitarians in waiting.
Every liberal I know uses the “Bush’ comment you just used. Did you know that it’s one of their talking points?

You’re joking, right? You have first hand knowledge of what Bush’s intentions were? Then you should know why a whole new layer of gov’t was necessary to ‘protect the homeland’ when we already have the FBI, CIA, NSA, National Guard, the Armed Forces, Border Patrol, ATF, the Secret Service, and probably many other alphabet agencies to protect us.
Tell us, what were Bush’s intentions when he advocated the North American Union Treaty without Congressional approval or even debate? What were his intentions of failing to secure the Southern border even after 9/11? How about signing McCain’s flawed Campaign Finance Reform bill? I could go on but there’s limited time and space.
