Talking Points

California Democratic Party - National Security Platform California Democrats support a strong national defense that includes considerations for all aspects of defense, not just the Armed Forces. We are committed to a foreign policy that holds the use of military forces as the last defense option, only when all else fails. We support the consolidation of all aspects of the national defense budget, now spread among Defense, State, Energy, Homeland Security and other cabinet departments, into a single, consolidated budget line item, so that redundancies can be eliminated and, more importantly, no aspect of total national defense goes under-served.

National Security. California Democrats believe in a comprehensive approach to our national security in which war is a last resort. That security is enhanced, not weakened, by our commitment to the values embodied in our nation's founding documents.
