I give to you this question: What would we as a nation look like if we were to actually lose the next armed conflict, the next war? It’s a possibility, it could happen especially under current government plans and actions.
Today more than any other time in the history of this nation, we need a strong Pentagon, a strong military. We cannot allow the likes of North Korea, of Iran, of terrorists to shape our destiny and that of a free world that should live in peace, prosperity and freedom, not in terror, mayhem and wars.
