Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I’m a hopeless sinner saved be the grace of Jesus Christ who shed is blood to pay the penalty for my sins. So through repentance and faith in him I could find salvation. I strive to live my life, and base my values and beliefs on the Bible. I’m far from perfect and ever thankful for the mercy that God has given me.

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.

My first involvement in politics was as a pro-life activist. I've served on the border as a volunteer. And, spent thousands of dollars, and thousands of hours of my life, working not only on my campaign, but presidential, congressional, and local campaigns. Always, choosing the most conservative candidate to fight for. Sacrificing, businiess opportunities, and time with my family, to fight for the restoration of Christian values in America. The thousands of voters in my district who know me, my friends and family, the news papers and media, and even my opponents supporters, have all recognized me as the more conservative choice. Last election I received the endorsement of the top 6 conservatives in the Texas house, as well as the top conservative organizations in the state of Texas.

Additional comment from candidate:

Our nation is in a state of moral cardiac arrest. All, the issues we face today (social, economic, national security, etc.) are the result of the weight of our own sins dragging us down. We need principled men and women in office, who do what is right, and trust in the LORD to bring the result he wants. The only true hope for our nation is if we repent, turn from our sin, and seek him.
