Paul Ryan: A Strategy for Renewal

Today at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) Annual National Security Conference, Representative Paul Ryan addresses his concerns about American national security, a direct follow-up to the speech he gave in 2011 to the Hamilton Society:

“Jack Kemp used to say he wasn’t a hawk—he was a heavily armed dove. That’s what I’d like to think I am—and what we all are. We prepare for war so we can keep the peace. We constantly renew our strength so we don’t have to use it. And through it all, our goal is a safe and free America in a safe and free world.”
