Homeland Security
Congressional District 29 holds some of America’s most important resources in it’s boundaries like the Houston Ship Channel and Petrochemical plants. We need boots on the ground with strong leadership and proven experience during these critical times. I am the only candidate in this race that has a comprehensive understanding of our critical infrastructure and possible vulnerabilities. More importantly, by virtue of my former TOP SECRET clearances, I understand the capabilities of our enemies.

 

National Defense/Foreign Policy
I strongly support a policy of Peace through Strength. We need to ensure that our men and women are properly trained and equipped to defend America. We need to ensure we are prepared to confront our future adversaries in the battlespace and not just on the battlefield. This means we start developing defensive and intelligence systems to protect us in the internet space as well as outer space. As a former military strategist, I know that war is an extension of foreign policy when everything else has failed. I believe that our National Strategy of foreign policy should always guide us down a road of mutual respect with other nations but at the end of the day we must always advocate for the American people. Congress must make sure that our foreign policy minimizes the exposure of our sons and daughters in battle. I will always make sure that every military operation includes an exit strategy with defined military objectives and timeline.
