The most important responsibility of the federal government is to provide national security and protect our borders. This requires enabling our intelligence community to have the tools needed to protect us, maintaining a strong military, and putting the safety of our citizenry above the political considerations of our enemies. We cannot waver on the defense of our nation.

Foreign terrorists should be treated as such, rather than being given the rights and privileges reserved for citizens.
Additionally, there should be a long-term strategy to lessen our dependence on foreign oil and foreign debt. Such dependencies put us in a precarious geopolitical standing that is not in our national security interests.
