National Security — A strong military and a strong economy are essential in rebuilding America’s world leadership and strengthening our security at home. As your congressman, I will use my knowledge in technology and business to achieve these vital goals. We must:
For nearly twenty years, I have been briefing members of Congress and government officials on the threats we face. Recently, my focus has been on spearheading a national education campaign to secure the U.S. electric grid from the threat of Electro-Magnetic Pulse nuclear attacks and the hazard of severe geomagnetic storms. I consulted on two pieces of pending legislation, HR 2417, the “Secure High-voltage Infrastructure for Electricity from Lethal Damage Act” and HR 3410, the “Critical Infrastructure Protection Act.”
America is a decade into a three-front war —and counting — with Afghanistan, Iraq, and now expanding to other parts of the Middle East. At home, Islamic terror attacks have left over 3,000 innocent civilians murdered.

As your congressman, I will identify America’s enemies and work to improve America’s diplomatic, intelligence, information, military, and economic strengths to defend the Constitution and to advance our and our allies’ security, prosperity and sovereignty. To be clear, our enemies are:
Finally, I would demand congress require a net threat assessment before I would vote on authorizing sending our brave men and women into harm’s way.
