Questionnaire

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.

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.

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.

Neutral

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

Disagree

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

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.

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.

Disagree

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

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.

Neutral

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

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Death to the mother; diagnosis of birth defects that cause pain and suffering to the fetus in-utero and death is imminent upon birth as a result; in some cases of documented rape or child molestation and incest.

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

The knowledge that the concentration of Power in one entity would lead to tyranny. Mankind can be, by nature; selfish, greedy, prideful and power hungry. Our Constitution established Government to protect and serve the people only. Not to control the people.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I know God and abide by his Word. All of mankind has faults and has fallen short of His glory, however; that is why He sent His son Christ Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. I do not believe in judging others, that is Christ Jesus' responsibility, therefore; I treat others as I would want to be treated and each day as I am blessed with new Grace, so shall I grant to others. I do not believe in picking and choosing from the Bible. A sin is a sin. My foundation is one of integrity, values and morality. I lead by example with kindness, patience, compassion, understanding and humility.

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

Conservative

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

I am guided by God first and the Constitution second. In all things I try to put aside my personal bias and strive for the betterment of all based solely on the Bible and the Constitution as my guidelines and a compassionate, non-judgemental heart.

Additional comment from candidate:

As a citizen, a wife, a mother and more importantly, a strong Republican Congresswoman, I will fight to bring back sustainable economic viability, self-esteem and personal responsibility to a community that for over 20 years has remained forgotten and ignored. So please join me and help be apart of the creation of a solid foundation built with values, morals and integrity for all of our families and communities to be lifted up on. So that we may rise to our fullest potential and be a beacon of not only hope, but an example of success for Houston and the World we live in.
