    In addition to all popular priorities i.e. Iraq, Medical Care, etc
    I’d like to know what if anything the candidates plan to improve
    our intelligence activities and abilities to make us secure.

    Stan, do you believe we are unsecure? The US spends as much on its defense budget as the next 10 nations combined. I’ve never understood the mindset that more and more money should be committed to that effort.

    Andrew: You should post a warning; “Your open forum comment may be immediately attacked.”

    I can’t speak for Mr. Solin, but I do not believe the U.S. is secure. 9/11 should have been a wakeup call to everyone that there are a good number of bad boys out there who would like to do harm to the U.S. A. I suppose secure is a relative term and most of us probably don’t dwell a good deal on the subject. That is until we are hit again.

    Throwing money at national security–like throwing money at education–by itself won’t solve our security(or education)problems. But a dash of better intelligence, a serving of decent pay for our troops and reserves and a continuing investment in technological developments wouldn’t hurt. Nor would a foreign policy that doesn’t isolate the U.S. from most of the world and invite every wacko on the edge to go after us with whatever material they can put together.
