Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Strongly Agree

2. It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

Strongly Disagree

3. The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.

Strongly Agree

4. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry of persons into the country.

Strongly Agree

5. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

6. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

7. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.

Strongly Agree

8. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

9. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

10. Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions when these are not economically feasible.

Strongly Disagree

11. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

12. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Strongly Agree

13. People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

14. The federal government should establish nationwide standards (such as Common Core) for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

15. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?

The human nature of becoming hungry for more power once in power had led to tyrannical rulers throughout history. These Separation of Powers were designed to keep any one branch of the Federal Government from becoming more powerful than the other two through the checks and balances among the three branches.

16. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.

The political issues of most concern to me also happen to be of the most concern among the thousands, and thousands, and thousands of residents I have met over the past 18 months as I knocked on doors throughout the 30+ cities, towns, and villages in Congressional District 22: Jobs & the economy, the divisiveness in Washington that has caused legislative gridlock, and the Federal debt & deficit spending. Having had a career entirely in construction & homebuilding in South Florida, I saw everyone's lives impacted by the housing collapse in 2008. The majority of those jobs never came back and so many people are still struggling to make ends meet. We've got to create an environment that gets companies hiring again and providing full-time jobs. We need to pass legislation on issues which we all can agree on such as properly providing for the healthcare of our veterans. We can't allow the Federal Debt to continue grow. We've got to balance our budget and then begin reducing the Debt.

17. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

I agree with the legislation passed by Florida in 2011 with the exception: "In the case where a woman suffers from a physical disorder, injury or illness, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy, as certified by a physician, place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed."

18. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God Constitution Voters

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord & Savior on December 1st, 1991 when I was 30 years old. I center my life around the word of God. It is the basis for my convictions, beliefs, and values.
