Bob Conley on Homeland Security

Democratic Senate challenger


Military bases abroad are unconstitutional

The focus of our government must be limited to its Constitutional functions which do not include military bases all over the world, undeclared wars, corporate welfare in its various incarnations, etc. Any reform of the Social Security program will, due to the sheer size of it, be predicated on a total overhaul and a refocusing of our country's priorities and missions in all endeavors.

Overseas occupations are breaking our military

Overseas deployments of occupation are breaking our military. Deployments in recent years have left 80% of our National Guard units without the necessary equipment for training--and the missions they should be prepared to serve here at home. Our National Guard needs to be rebuilt.

Repeal Big Brother legislation & restore Constitution

Bob Conley will fight to repeal the Big Brother legislation passed by rubber-stamp Republican Congresses. We cannot afford to give up essential liberties under the false pretense of security. Measures that infringe on our individual liberties protected by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights must be repealed! We must restore the Constitution and respect the principles on which our Republic was founded.

Our empire-building abroad comparable to Roman empire

Conley references both the British and collapsed Roman empires as he explains the need for American troops to come home from all over the globe, citing South Korea as the first place for withdrawal. "Why in the world are we paying to protect South Korea? We've been over there over 50 years. The South Koreans need to stand up and pay for their own defense," he said. "We have gotten mixed up in all this globalism and this empire-building abroad. It's time that we take care of the republic."
