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?

Anti-terrorism. I wouldn't feel safe if less money were spent on preventing terrorist activity.

Natural disasters. Hurricane Katrina clearly showed that our country is not adaquately prepared to deal with major disasters.

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.

Both. We need to prevent all kinds of disasters, even if it means raising taxes or cutting other budgets.
