This issue framing presents three possible options to consider:
Option One: National Security Means Safeguarding the United States
Our global objective must always be to maintain the safety of the United States and its citizens. We must guard against threats to national security above all.
Option Two: National Security Depends on Putting Our Economic House in Order
With such significant economic issues facing us, we need to focus on eliminating our staggering public indebtedness and improving the balance of trade. That means spending less on the military and reducing the amount of money that flows overseas.
Option Three: National Security Means Recognizing that Global Threats are our Greatest Challenge
Today's challenges face everyone on the planet, not just one nation. We must take a leadership role in working with other nations in a collaborative way to address long-term threats to humanity and increase foreign aid so other nations can also address such threats.
