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

Strongly Agree

There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Strongly Agree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Strongly Disagree

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

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 Disagree

Free-market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Strongly Agree

The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Disagree

Business owners should be required by law to bake cakes, provide flower arrangements, etc., for same-sex weddings, even when these activities would infringe on their sincerely-held religious beliefs.

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

Physician-assisted suicide should be legal.

Strongly Disagree

The more people live by Judeo-Christian values, the less government is needed.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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

"Because of our founding fathers strong religious faith, they knew of the sinful nature of men. By Divine Providence, they established this plan to limit man's desire for more power by the separating of branches of government. They knew that once authority and power is given to people, human nature causes them to want more authority and power. Our three branches of government give checks and balances to prevent over-use of power in any one branch.

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, Voters, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

There should be only one condition in which abortion could be considered, that would be the imminent death of the mother. But with today's ever advancing medical technology, I believe that every possible means, including prayer, should be used to save the life of both mother and child.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that God is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and is omnipresent and omnificent. I believe that Jesus Christ lived on earth to show us how to live, died on the cross for my sins, and rose from the dead fulfilling God's promises to mankind for eternal life to those who do believe in these truths. I have received Jesus Christ as my Savior. I study and read the Bible daily to learn how to live the truths God teaches us from HIs Word. I work daily to live out and to share these principles with other people so they may choose to be included in God's family.

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.

Since I have never held public office, my track record is in service to God, my family, our business, and my community. I lived in accordance with upholding the Constitutions of our nation and our state. I have volunteered in both public and private schools, church, pro-life movements, and financially supported organizations that protect life and liberties.

Additional comment from candidate:

I am running for HD121 because I believe the voters deserve a representative who will be a voice and a vote for their values of Pro-Life, protected freedoms, smaller government, border protection, and lower taxes. With my experiences as a teacher, business owner, active citizen, and parent/grandparent, I can be a citizen's legislator for this district. Additionally, by my removing Joe Straus from office, the House of Representative will have the opportunity to elect a true conservative Speaker thereby liberating the legislature to pass laws supported by the majority of the voters.
