A strong military with “peace through strength” should be our nation’s approach and first priority. One of the biggest threats to the United States is cyber‐attacks which target our infrastructure. I feel that continued poor fiscal management by our leaders in Washington is one of the biggest long term threats to our security.
The economy will be one of my top areas of focus because I believe a strong economy lessens the impact of most other problems facing America. Excessive regulation and convoluted financing requirements slow the engine of our economy. I believe that investing in small business in this country is the answer. Small businesses create most of our jobs. Small business is where creativity and ingenuity come to life. If a company is “too big to fail” it is too big to exist.
Our infrastructure is in need of repair. Good roads and waterways assist our economy and should be a priority. Infrastructure improvement projects will create jobs. We need to come up with creative ways to pay for these projects.
