National Defense and Security of our Freedom
Our current Commander in Chief uses appeasement as a standard methodology for foreign policy. George Washington taught us over 200 years ago that this is not an acceptable strategy. He understood that to be prepared for war is the most effective means of preserving peace. People, cities, states and nations act in their own self-interest. Weak leadership and negotiating from behind is exploited. Our federal government has the responsibility to protect the people and our interests from foreign threats. We can only have peace through strength.
Freedom is not free. Ronald Reagan said that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Our Freedom has been paid for by good citizens and our brave men and women in uniform.
They deserve our gratitude, support, and respect. The threats to our sovereign nation exist, and the most effective way to defend the people, protect our troops and our Freedom is to have the strongest national defense possible. Aside from the obvious Constitutional soundness of a strong National Defense it makes economic and moral sense.
