We must remain committed to having a strong national defense that can protect our freedom and liberty both here in America and abroad.

We cannot stick our head in the sand and ignore the fact that countries with unstable leadership like Iran and North Korea are expanding their nuclear capabilities.  Terrorists continue to seek a way to destroy the American way of life.  And instead of standing with Israel and other long-standing allies, the Obama Administration has far too often bowed to our enemies and capitulated to those that seek to do us harm.

Having graduated first in his class from West Point and being a decorated veteran who patrolled the Iron Curtain, Mike Pompeo has used his experience and understanding of national defense policy to be a strong voice in Congress.  Mike knows that the threats faced by our nation are real, and that ignoring them won't make them go away.  Having been in the military during Ronald Reagan's presidency, Mike knows that "Peace through Strength" does work.

In Congress, Mike Pompeo has used his background to ensure our government provides our servicemen and women every resource they need to protect our freedom.  It is more important than ever that we do not waver from the commitment to ensure that our military has the tools to not only do the job, but do it right.
