Republicans National Security

FILE - In thhis July 22, 2103 file photo, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. speaks with reporters in Louisville, Ky. A rift over national security is developing in the early stages of the Republican Party's next presidential campaign, putting libertarians at odds with hawks who cite the 2001 terrorist attacks. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is warning that a growing libertarian streak among both parties is dangerous. He points to the widows and orphans of his home state who were affected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Paul tweeted Friday that he worries about the dangers of losing freedom, while Christie worries about the dangers of freedom. For Republicans, the national security debate offers a window into a changing party that re-elected President George W. Bush nearly a decade ago after he took tough steps to fight terrorism.
