Issue Position: National Security and Foreign Policy
President Ronald Reagan had it right -- Peace through Strength.
We must maintain a cutting edge military and bolster our intelligence agencies if America is going to remain the dominant force for freedom in this world that it must be. We should continue to invest in research and development, so that our soldiers have the technology they need to protect themselves and defend our country.
I believe in foreign intervention only when we have a direct threat to the national interest of the United States. We must also take into account the previous decisions made and work to ensure that the investment in lives and funding will not be vain.
I believe we should do everything in our power to defend and protect U.S. sovereignty and uphold the U.S. Constitution. Under no circumstances should we cede or grant any power to any international body that usurps our national sovereignty -- no matter how noble the cause may seem.
