National Security


The phrase 'national security' often elicits a multitude of interpretation from different segments of the populace. Essentially though, national security is the process and mechanism designed to protect the nation and its interests from an internal/ or foreign political, military and/or economic threat.

Obviously, these threats have evolved in modern times. For the latter half of the previous century, the country's primary focus on national security was the Soviet Union and the threat of a thermonuclear holocaust. Our resources were directed almost exclusively towards strengthening our military and cultivating strategic national allies.

The present age, however, has seen the potential source of threats evolving and expanding into a wider and more complex variant. A direct invasion or nuclear strike has long been supplemented by more unique, but equally dangerous threats.


(i) Cyber terrorism
(ii) Foreign energy dependence
(iii) Currency/financial market manipulation
(iv) Non-state terrorism

2012 Republican Presidential Nominee
Former Governor of Massachusetts

Mitt Romney

Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney

Romney Position on National Security

• Mitt Romney feels that USA should hike up military spending to 4% of the country's GDP. He also believes that the Government should increase the active duty work force by ten thousand.

• Mitt Romney stands for wire tapping mosques to keep a check on Islamic terrorists and feels that USA should stridently hike up the military investment to counter act racial jihad.

• Romney feels that USA should employ both military and diplomatic actions to win the Jihadists. He supports bringing in a global and non military effort to counter act jihad. He also told the press "I want to bring in a real strong team of people who have different backgrounds, a lot from the private sector, and I want to take on a whole series of efforts."

• He thinks that USA should not weaken Musharaff of Pakistan as they need an ally to counter act Bin Laden.

• One of the most important things that Romney regrets in life is not having joined the military even though he was eligible for the draft.

• Romney believes that the FBI should have the power to wiretap mosques and spy on new Muslims who came to reside in the country.

• He once stated, "my view is, we ought to double Guantanamo" so that the terrorist will be prevented from getting any access to lawyers.

Matt Snyder

Presidential Candidate Matt Snyder

Snyder Position on National Security

"Control the border. We control the seas and the skies, but we are currently failing to control the easiest area to protect—the land. We don’t need to close the borders, just control them so we know who is coming in, why they’re here, where they’re going, and when they’re leaving."
