The primary duty of the President of the United States is to protect
our people. In fact, it is the principal duty of a limited federal
government. They must ensure that our military and all of our security
agencies are strong and capable. Unfortunately, national
security has become far too politicized with our elected officials using
the issue as a means to polarize our country as the “war hawks” and the
“peace doves.” In response, the safety and morale of our brave men and
women in uniform are often at risk for political purposes. National
security isn’t about politics. It’s about defending America.
While diplomacy is a critical tool in solving the complex security
issues we face, it must never compromise military might. Because we are
such a free and prosperous people, we are the envy of the world. Many
regimes seek to destroy us because they are threatened by our ideals,
and they resent our prosperity. We must acknowledge the real and present
danger that terrorist nations and organizations pose to our county’s
Further, we must stand by our friends and we must not
be fooled by our enemies. We should never be deceived by terrorists.
They only have one objective, namely, to kill all of us. We must always
remain vigilant in dealing with adversaries.
We must support
our military with the best training, equipment, technology and
infrastructure necessary to keep them in a position to win. We must also
provide our men and women in uniform, our veterans and their families
with the benefits they deserve for their tremendous sacrifice. These
heroes have served us. We must not forget to serve them.
