From America's Election Headquarters...

(Perry) "That border will be shut down, and it will be secure."

Rick Perry, on what he'd do within a year of becoming President, calling southern border security a vital element in keeping the entire nation secure.  Another element, according to the Texas governor: smarter use of our foreign aid money.

(Perry) "To write a check to countries that are clearly not representing American interests is nonsensical."

But Perry says defense, like many other issues, is linked to the economy.  he says his top priority is to get America's economic engine running at full speed, to ensure we have the resources to maintain a strong, modern defense.
