I like your positions. I would urge one new emphasis. I've seen many people hurt by meth addiction, and a lot of petty crime and some violent crime that's resulted from addiction. I would like to see a REAL war on drugs with the US military conducting strikes on producers, traffickers and drug lords, with international cooperation from countries such as Mexico. I don't support Trump's border nonsense, but instead I favor more open borders, easier passage in and out of the country to Mexico and Canada, better relations with Mexico, and funding to help Mexico address the growing corruption resulting from drug trafficking. They need help with a good effective war on drugs too, and I wouldn't complain if the Air Force were to bomb drug facilities and mansions of drug lords.
