The main purpose of the Federal Government is to provide our national defense, and this should be its main focus. I am against any treaty, pact, or arrangement with any foreign nation or organization that would require any type of disarmament. I believe that all defense expenditures should be directly related to the protection of our nation, and that every item of expenditure must be carefully reviewed to eliminate foreign aid, waste, fraud, theft, inefficiency, and excess profits from all defense contracts and military expenditures. Congress has the power “To raise and support armies, but no appropriation of money to that use shall be for a longer term than two years” (Article I section 8). I am in favor of the Strategic Defense Initiative and other cutting-edge advances in defense technology.

I am against the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security and the office of National Director of Intelligence. The last thing we need to do is create more bureaucracy and take away power from the directors of the CIA, FBI, and other agencies and give it to one man. We have enough corruption as it is.

The main source of defense for our nation should be the long forgotten Militia. Most people know that the 2nd amendment protects our right to bear arms, but they forget the first part:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State..."

It is sad to see that most people don't even know what the Militia is! It is a requirement that ALL able-bodied males should receive firearms training and military discipline, to be carried out by the States, not the Federal Government. Only a portion of the Militia is to be in "service of the United States", so the National Guard does not fulfill the requirement. The Militia is necessary to repel invasions and insurrections, and act as a check against Federal power. It does this all without the dangers associated with the standing armies we have now, which are condemned by our state constitution.
