How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
Social Security is a contract with Americans that needs to be honored without exception. If there is a funding problem in the future, disbursements should be explored but only for future generations and not existing contributors older than 18 years old. Again, the government needs to adhere to their existing contracts with Americans.

And healthcare providers should be required to provide upfront pricing to the max extent possible before services are provided.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
Racism is a cancer that is unacceptable to any society. A nation that tolerates racism will always be at risk of civil unrest or war. That said, I do believe our society is far better off in this regard than just 50 years ago.
