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.


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

Strongly Agree

5. Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Strongly Agree

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


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


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 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.


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

Strongly Disagree

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

Our borders need to be secured and all illegals deported before any changes are made to the immigration system. This is our nation's biggest security threat. Taxes need to be reduced all around to stimulate the economy and grow jobs. Obamacare needs to be completely repealed in it's entirety. It is a massive wasteful bureaucracy that has nothing to do with health care and everything to do with government control. Private charity can take over for those needing care they cannot afford.

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

I personally am against abortion; however, should a vote come up while I am in office, I would ask my constituents where they are on this issue and ask them to let my office know. I would then vote based on the majority of the responses my office received. If elected, it would be my job to represent the people and not my personal beliefs.

16. 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, Congress, Supreme Court

17. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian and my faith is what has brought me to run for office. I believe we need honest people in our government and without these values, our country cannot prosper.
