Welcome to National Security Affairs
What are our national interests? How do we protect and advance those interests? How should we prioritize which interests are the most important and which interests less so?
National security policy falls squarely upon the president. He must develop a national security policy, considering these questions, among others. To choose a president is to choose the character of our national security policy.
My intent for this group is to have a place where we can discuss and critique our national security policy from a conservative viewpoint. Feel free to bring up any subject related to national security, foreign relations or defense and the policies and policymakers affecting these subjects. I enjoy lively debate about these issues, so be sure you're able to defend your position and don't be afraid to ask questions or challenge what you read.
National security is an area where conservative ideology, based in a pragmatic realism, is undoubtedly the superior basis from which to form policy. Conservative ideology is best suited because it is pragmatic and moral. Let's use this group to educate as many as we may about the threats we face as a nation. If we do this well, reasonable people will make the reasonable choice and perhaps will make a more reasonable choice at the polls during hte next election.
Toward the ends of educating each other and those not yet familiar with national security affairs, invite as many as you would like to join this group.
