Issue Position: National Security
Our national security should be built on a strong, effective military and foreign policy. We must arm our men and women on the front lines with the best and highest quality equipment to protect themselves and the nation. We should also prevent and reduce the possibility of a nuclear confrontation or mishap. We should fund the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Act to ensure the secure transport, storage, and dismantlement of nuclear and chemical weapons. To the extent possible, we should utilize diplomacy and work with the United Nation and the international community in resolving dispute rather than making unilateral and major pre-emptive strikes that would cost lives and break up families.
