  • "Millions of Muslims have lived in the United States peacefully for hundreds of years. Religious liberty is probably the highest virtue that we hold as a nation. That being said, there is no denying that radical factions of Muslims believe that killing "infidels" is their religious duty (jihad), and they consider the U.S. infidels. As a former Pastor, I know the history of religious wars, especially between Israel and her enemies. Our country should continue its unwavering support for the nation of Israel, and should absolutely continue to be pro-active in our defense against radical Muslims that would seek to cause us harm." https://votesmart.org/public-statement/1243346/issue-position-terrorism (votesmart.org)
  • "We must respond to attacks on our diplomats and troops with every ounce of our military force and clean out federal agencies who have contributed to weakening our country's standing on the world stage. It is vital that we prosecute current and former federal officials who have participated, lied and covered up major international blunders, some of which have led to the death of Americans." https://votesmart.org/public-statement/851404/issue-position-national-defense (votesmart.org)
