The continual use of the word "Homeland" by President George Bush reveals that he is guided by the philosophical principles of University Of Chicago professor Leo Strauss.

Leo Strauss taught that Patriotic Fervor is to be rallied against external enemies; this fervor is based upon the belief that the elite Few's values are the best in the world, and that all other cultures and their values are inferior in comparison.

Strauss taught The State Is Omnipotent: It Manifests Militarily. Strauss believed that human aggression could only be restrained by a powerful military state.

And Strauss taught Perpetual War Is Necessary. Straussians believe in a continually aggressive, belligerent foreign policy; the kind that advocated by think tanks such as the PNAC and AEI.

The word Homeland appears prominently in the Presidents Biography where it says: On the morning of September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked our Nation. Since then, President Bush has taken unprecedented steps to protect our homeland and create a world free from terror.

Protecting the Homeland is listed as a major "issue" on the White House Web Site http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/homeland/
