Jamie Radtke on Homeland Security

 


Creating Department of Homeland Defense was not necessary

Asked if the creating the Department of Homeland Defense was necessary, Radtke was the only candidate to say no. "So we have the CIA, the FBI, State Department and Department of Defense and the solution in Washington was, 'let's create another department,' " she said. "That's what's wrong with Washington." But Radtke went a step further, saying she is concerned with what she called the government's "infringement on civil liberties,"

A strong military is essential to our security

Providing safety and security to the people of the US is one of the fundamental responsibilities of the national government and is a paramount priority. A strong military is essential to our security. Americans should enjoy the protection provided by their government from attacks from hostile nations and terrorists alike.

Terrorism, whether state-sponsored or not, poses our gravest national security threat today. Rogue nations, including North Korea and Iran, are also a threat.

Rove wire tappings & email tracing need judicial review

Government does have the responsibility to protect us, but not at the expense of the basic human and Constitutional rights of privacy and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures. I respect the intentions of the PATRIOT Act, but rove wire tappings, email tracing, and access to personal and business records should be required to go through proper judicial review. I promise to oppose reauthorization of techniques and practices that are clearly unconstitutional.
