Security Matters because America Matters. Seeking safety and security for our families, our communities and ourselves is universal, making national security one of the most things our government does. America Matters believes thoughtful diplomacy coupled with effective national defense programs offers the best solutions to this challenge. We advocate for policies that ensure these vital responsibilities are met.

Domestic Tranquility

“In a time of domestic crisis, men of goodwill and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics.” – President John F. Kennedy

Every American has the right to equal treatment under the law. No individual or group should feel the pain of discrimination or be afforded special privileges.

Every American should feel safe in their community protected from crime and oppression. Government and law enforcement are both servants of the American people.

National Security

“Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.” – President Ronald Reagan

National and homeland security work in conjunction with diplomacy to protect our nation and ensure America is a respected member of the global community.

Throughout American history, our national interests have been threatened many times, and each time the American people have risen to the challenge. There continue to be grave actions at home and abroad that threaten our interests and those of our allies; we must be prepared and willing to act decisively when needed. We will look to engage in civil and productive relationships, while ensuring dangers are faced quickly and effectively.

American Values

The Statue of Liberty says, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” This call comes with the requirement that to live here people must share our values by supporting the Constitution and laws of this country.
