There is no doubt that there are dangers in the world. We must be vigilant to protect our citizens from terrorist attacks or "lone wolf" extremists and to ensure that unstable countries do not obtain nuclear weapons. We must protect our government, businesses, and individuals from cyber attacks. We must do all this AND stay true to our core values. Military action should always be the last resort after diplomatic efforts and sanctions have been exhausted.
America CAN be strong, safe and secure, while at the same time, respected and admired around the world.
America CAN have a strong military, secure borders, and protected infrastructure that is inviting to friends and avoided by foes.
