“A system has to be established [with] legality but no citizenship for those with deep ties…”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

"We must reconcile the goal of legality with the reality that there are millions of immigrants currently here outside the law, some with a long set of family and community ties, and some with no ties. A system has to be established that establishes legality but no citizenship for those with deep ties, repatriates those with no family or community ties in a dignified way, and quickly sends home those who have committed criminal and other destructive acts."

“Those who adhered to our immigration law cannot be usurped by those who violated it.”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

"Under no circumstance can a path to citizenship be created which would allow those who have broken the law to receive precedence over those who patiently waited to become residents and citizens via the legal process. Those who adhered to our immigration law cannot be usurped by those who violated it."

“Syria does not deserve an ambassador; its protesters deserve support”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

"We must cease our verbal, moral, and diplomatic equivalence as between good and evil. Syria does not deserve an ambassador; its protesters deserve support; Israeli housing starts should not be put on the same moral plane as Hamas terror attacks; and China should be challenged on religious liberty rather than be given a veto on the human-rights activists we wish support."

“This… effort to have forces on the ground [is] a swamp, whether it’s Afghanistan, Iraq, or Libya”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“I think it’s useful to use covert operations to get rid of Muammar Gadhafi, but I don’t think the U.S. should have troops there. I think this whole effort to have forces on the ground has turned out to be a swamp, whether it’s Afghanistan, Iraq or Libya. Because we are not prepared to be engaged deeply enough to change the culture, and we are [only] prepared to engage deep enough to get in and out. And that leaves you with the worst of all worlds. Because over time your enemies hate you, your very presence leads to more people...

“Only a grand strategy for…defeating radical Islamists across the world will lead to victory.”

Posted on January 01, 2011 in Campaign Statements

“America currently lacks a unified grand strategy for defeating radical Islamism.  The result is that we currently view Iraq, Afghanistan, and the many other danger spots of the globe as if they are isolated, independent situations.  Only a grand strategy for marginalizing, isolating, and defeating radical Islamists across the world will lead to victory.”
