National Security; action items: Maintain a robust domestic diplomatic capability (State Department, USAID, etc.). Develop stronger alliances with current allies and potential allies. Provide greater manpower and funding resources for our military. Increase funding for defense research and development. Require our allies to increase their respective investments in the areas listed above. Countries with strong economic ties are not likely to engage in hostilities, so we should develop stronger trade alliances based upon free & fair trade principles including no tariffs, barriers, or subsidies.
