From his web site: Hunter, on national security -- Government's most fundamental responsibility is to protect its citizens. After serving three tours of duty in the Middle East since 9/11/2001, I understand the tremendous threat to our future posed by terrorism and the spread of radical and violent Islamism. Now, as much as at any time in our history, we need to be vigilant and strong. My platform includes: Strengthen and maintain our military to keep us safe; Make sure the men and women serving us in uniform have the best equipment and training available; Eliminate government red tape and bureaucratic roadblocks that hamper our efforts to obtain new weapons and intelligence technology.
