For decades, our party has embraced
the philosophy of peace through strength. We believe lasting peace, defended by
democratic institutions, freedom and the will to defend ourselves, has and will
serve our country well. Today this means defending America’s homeland and her
allies and interests in tandem with promoting effective intelligence teams.
Not only do we fully support our armed forces, we are committed to
providing them with the tools and training to keep them safe and effective.
As the threats facing our country have evolved over the years, so too has our ability to respond to them. Our national security personnel are the most well-trained in the world, and we must never forget the duty that they fulfill for our nation. As Republicans, we are committed to ensuring that our troops have the funding, training, equipment, and support that they need when they are deployed and the care that they and their families need and deserve when they return home.
Border security has been a challenge our Republican representatives have taken up and
continue to fight for. At both the state and federal level our men and
women in uniform have been receiving our heartfelt support for the difficult
and dangerous work they perform to keep us safe.
