Lets start by safeguarding from prospective absolute authority from the Office Of Homeland Security. Keep a lid on this bunch of beaureaucrats, and make sure that the power that they yield works for American citizens... Not at the expense of our freedom.

The government needs to do a lot more especially with regard to our ports. It is not providing the coast guard with the funds needed to do an adequate job. The cutters are very old our fleet is one of the oldest navies in the world averaging around 28 years old. We can't fight our way out of a wet paper bag with most of the cutters we have.
