Is There A "Tea Party" National Security Policy?

We reviewed the statements of Senator Rand Paul, LTC and former Congressman Allen West and Senator Ted Cruz and found that all agree on one policy: “peace through strength.” The challenge for Tea Partiers going forward is how to pursue that policy in the face of an implacable Islamist cultural enemy that has been all too ready to provoke the U.S. into military intervention through unconventional attacks on our interests abroad and terrorism in our own homeland.

Did We Get It Wrong On Ferguson Response?

We think part of our job is to challenge our fellow conservatives to confront tough questions about how to govern according to conservative principles.
