Questionnaire

Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Agree

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

Neutral

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Strongly Agree

The U.S. military should wait for militant Islamic groups to directly threaten our national security on our shores, rather than eradicate them now wherever they may be worldwide.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

I support legislation such as the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) that would prohibit discrimination against individuals, organizations and small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree

The federal government should establish Common Core as a nationwide academic standard for high school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

I oppose the resettlement of Syrian refugees into the U.S. without proper vetting.

Strongly Agree

Current regulations on domestic oil exploration and drilling are more restrictive than are necessary.

Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self-interest into the most productive economic system there is.

Strongly Agree

Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions until they are economically feasible.

Strongly Disagree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

Strongly Agree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with public funds.

Neutral

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Disagree

The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.

Strongly Agree

Planned Parenthood should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Neutral

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) does not pose a threat to the United States and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

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.

Constitution,Voters,then Congress and the Supreme Court are on equal footing. God is an authority to the individualp.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

This is a question that should be left to the States to decide in accordance with Roe v. Wade. If Roe v. Wade is overturned or strengthened, then this will change. Stare Decisis should stand for something.

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

The free will of man to be corruptible and searching for ever increasing power. That is why Congress as a whole was intended to be the most powerful entity, since it is supposed to more closely reflect the citizens of this great nation.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe my spiritual beliefs are private and should not be interfered with or run down by anyone, not even the government. I believe in God, but I believe that it is not my place to force my religion upon anyone. If I cannot lead you to live your life right, I am to turn away, not judge you.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Somewhat Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I do not have a publicly available track record. I believe that our tax dollars should be spent carefully and not on wasteful items that the private sector should be funding. I do not believe in giving money to the government of those countries who hate us and our way of life. National security should be the first focus of our federal government and protecting the US citizens and the borders of this country should be priority. I believe everyone has the right to be happy and not have that happiness interfered with by the government. I truly believe that less government leads to a happier citizenry. I believe it is the parents responsibility to raise the child with their moral, religious, and social values and the schools need to stay out of the social issues.

Additional comment from candidate:

I do not believe that the black vote should be diluted any further than it is. Illegal immigrants voting does just that. IF voter laws require photo IDs, then the government should be sure to shoulder the costs for getting this done for ALL American citizens. Obamacare should be fixed or replaced. We may be too late to be able to safely repeal it. I believe the Supreme Court got it wrong when they deemed everyone has the right to enter into a religious relationship of marriage. It should have deemed that everyone must enter into a civil union and left religion out of it. Then, the religious would not feel that their religious freedoms were being diluted. Marijuana is more similar to alcohol than to heroin. Like Prohibition, we are finding we cannot win this war. Let us end the war on drugs and begin a war on addiction. We save those who want to be saved.
