Sweet Cakes owners Aaron and Melissa Klein, Ben Pollock: Former candidate for congress


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

Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

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


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.

Strongly Agree

People should be able to vote without photo identification.


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.

Strongly Agree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Strongly Disagree

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.

God, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court, Industry, Academia.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

When the life of the mother is threatened.

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

Our founders understood that mankind is corrupt and that concentrated power in individuals like kings and dictators threatens peace and personal freedom. Separated powers with checks and balances, where no individual or single group have unbound control, was the best way to assure that democracy would succeed.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that all mankind is lost without our Savior Jesus Christ. I believe that no man made system of governance will ever be perfect but that we can ever strive to conduct or personal and public life to better reflect Godly values and righteous living. Our nation is losing it's spiritual and moral compass because we have taken our fixation off of Christ.

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

Very Conservative

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

I have been endorsed by Sweet Cakes owners Aaron and Melissa Klein who were fined $135,000 for not baking a cake for a same-sex wedding because it violated their religious beliefs. I have volunteered my time to raise money for the Crisis Pregnancy Care Centers who provide alternatives to women who are considering an abortion. As someone who was homeschooled, I defend school choice and alternative educations like home education and I strongly support parental rights. I am on the record in my campaign as a firm supporter of the 2nd amendment and the rights of all law abiding citizens to own firearms. I have also spoken about the need for the United States to remain the worlds strongest ally to Israel.
