My Top 3 Priorities

  • Protection of the Homeland by immediately halting the influx of unvetted aliens -- particularly from the Middle East and Southwest Asia. I will initiate steps to build a robust fence along our southern and northern borders, monitored by Federal troop
  • Foreign Policy/Diplomacy: The elimination of ISIS by all means of military force reasonably necessary to accomplish the mission.
  • Re-Structuring Government: The re-structuring and/or elimination of government agencies that are create was and are not cost-effective. I will start with the IRS!
