I believe that America should be more militaristic. Come up with a stronger military that no one would reckon with. Then, when someone does reckon with us, we destroy them and take their resources. In addition, we could attack the middle east, which continually threatens the lives of Americans, and drain the region of oil. This, for example, could clear our debt, and give us an economic surplus that we could use to invest in alternative energy and more military. Not to mention we could improve roads, particularly interstates, and build more schools with the extra money. (China would be next)
Militarism, for a capable country like America, could be extremely profitable. It would eliminate threats and make our treasury bigger.

Honestly I'd go with typical Newt Gingrich/Rick Santorum neo-conservative.

Good idea because China probably wouldn't use thier nukes if we attacked them...and even if they did, think of all the jobs it would create to rebuild everything.
