I believe the primary duty of the federal government is to ensure citizen safety. That apparently was not the goal in the "fundamental changing" of America under the Obama administration.
In that time, our military defenses were greatly depleted as troops did not receive the equipment and resources needed. Civilian police were degraded – even threatened, and MS-13 gang members and other violent illegal immigrants were allowed into the country. Huge amounts of cash were transported to self-proclaimed enemy Iran – then reportedly used to fund ISIS and Hamas.
As a member of the Armed Services, Budget, and Judiciary Committees, Congressman Matt Gaetz has been at the forefront of rebuilding and supporting our military, protecting our borders, fighting for the Second Amendment, limiting spending, and elevating our civilian defense forces. He has strongly and vocally supported President Trump's goals.
True patriots like President Donald Trump, Gaetz, and the House Freedom Caucus are working 24-seven to make America safe again. Under the leadership of these men, our economy is surging. Stocks are booming as companies return to our shores. Business confidence is growing, jobs are created, and unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, and women is the lowest in history.
We must elect Conservative Republicans in 2018 to continue this resurrection of America. We need to return Gaetz to the House, send Rick Scott to the Senate, and elect Ron DeSantis as Governor. There is much work – it will take effort and time – but finally there is hope.
