The number of undocumented residents in the U.S., clearly highlights the problem with our immigration policy. We can not permit mass amnesty, nor can we mass deport everyone. The undocumented residents here must get right with the law, and we must enforce the law. We can not offer the rights and entitlements of the law, to those who broke the law. Doing this undermines our laws and the bases of our legal system.

A wall between the U.S. and Mexico, would not solve the situation. Most undocumented immigrants, are here by violating their visas. Although we have a lot of undocumented immigrants crossing the border, there are better ways to secure our borders, instead of creating a wall that would be funded by U.S. tax payers dollars.
As a Veteran who has served in Korea, and patrolled the DMZ. I have witnessed the unstablized actions of North Korea and, I understand the danger the North Korean regime poses to the United States. The United States should not get involved in a war with North Korea, until all diplomatic options have been exhausted. Allowing the North Koreans to develop a missile capable of reaching the U.S. mainland would jeopardize American safety. I would support a policy of diplomacy until we have no other options but to confront the treat head on.
I would support a program that encourages Americans to take proactive steps in savings and preparation for retirement. To make changes to the current system that is used by million of Americans, is reckless. The changes need to Social Security and Medicare must be made in a way that phases these programs out for the Americans who are not in the current workforce and are not born yet. Essentially, make the future Americans born after a certain date in the future ineligible for these program.
Obamacare should not be repealed or replaced until we have a better program in place. If we are to keep a form of Universal Healthcare, we should take note and observe those countries that have a Universal Healthcare program. We should exam their blueprint of these programs, make adjustments to fit our society and implement them accordingly.

I believe the best things we can do for healthcare is to get control of the cost of healthcare. The United States has the largest Healthcare program in the world and we spend the most on healthcare. Yet we have the least amount of citizens covered, the highest cost associated, and the poorest quality healthcare program of all industrialized nations. Some thing is wrong with this situation.
