People that do not have resources cannot consistently keep their government in check. Societies that are predicated on representative government need a healthy middle class to maintain these structures. High taxation does not incentivize wealth creation. President Trump's recent tax cuts prompted numerous large businesses to offer bonuses to their employees as well as bring back cash to the United States for investment.

The US military should reduce its footprint from over 900 installations to 30 key global locations. In addition, our military presence in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq need to be completely withdrawn. These military operations are taking a serious toll on the image of the United States as well as military readiness. Going forward, the United States needs to ensure that all of its global relationships and activities are mutually beneficial to our partners as well as us.(Read More)
