Drew Ferguson on Homeland Security

 

 


Released Gitmo detainees behind various attacks against US

The Truth About Gitmo: It's believed that about a dozen detainees released from the detention center in Guantanamo Bay are behind various attacks against the United States or our allied forces in Afghanistan. The result? The loss of six American lives.

Why haven't we heard of this previously? Because all of the information involving the released detainees has been classified. President Obama is keeping information from Congress and from the American people. We deserve the FULL truth from the White House when our national security is at risk. Upon their release, these dangerous terrorists are not likely to simply fade into the background of society. They aren't going to stop killing people just because the administration hopes they will.

We desperately need, and rightfully deserve, new leadership in the White House who will not withhold the truth from the American people. We cannot stand to have our national security at risk, but when it is, we have the right to know.

Imperative for our military to be at full troop strength

Strengthening Our Military: Our world is filled with threats. That's why now, more than ever before, it is imperative for our military to be at full troop strength. There is no way to predict what risks the future may hold, so we must be fully prepared and fully equipped to face our enemies at a moment's notice--whenever and wherever that might be.

The U.S. Army is currently experiencing its lowest number of active-duty soldiers since World War II. This is not due to lack of patriotism, but rather lack of proper funding from Washington.

Today, we face countless dangers that threaten American safety and the ability to defend our homeland. We must work to strengthen our military--NOT weaken it. Downsizing is the LAST thing that we need do! We have the best military in the world, but we can only keep it that way if the men and women of our armed forces are given the resources and equipment required to do the job. Adequate funding must be a priority. There is no national security without it.

Supports maintaining a numerically superior nuclear arsenal.

Ferguson supports the AFA survey question on defense superiority

The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.
