Rand Paul Supports a Strong National Defense
I believe the most important function of our Federal Government is national security. As a Senator, one of the most important votes I could ever make is on a Declaration of War.
Today, with the continued rise of threats like ISIS, we’re seeing the results of President Obama’s misguided foreign policy.
That’s why I believe it’s critical we look to the guidance the Founders passed down to us as we debate how best to defend our great nation.
The Founding Fathers understood the seriousness of war and thus included in our Constitution a provision stating that only Congress can declare war.
We must maintain this important check and balance, and the decision to wage war should not be taken lightly.
I believe in Ronald Reagan’s “Peace through Strength.” I will continue to stand with Israel and our allies abroad.
