RP never said he would shut down America's defense systems

Not that I can recall and I can't even find that anywhere.
What he has said is that the role for govt in America is to provide national defense.
He said he'd put troops on our borders and enlist the help of private landowners along the border to assist in providing security.

“A nation without borders is no nation at all. It doesn’t make sense to fight terrorists abroad while leaving our front door unlocked.”

In the Iowa debate, he said we waste our time protecting foreign borders while leaving ours unprotected.

I think you're mistaking what he said about closing foreign bases and twisting it to mean he'd stop defending our southern border.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.
