Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
As a strong supporter of life, I believe every baby is precious in the eyes of God. I support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that says only in the case when the life of the mother is at risk should this be an option.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Our precious freedoms have a divine origin. Our Founding Fathers recognized the sinful nature of man and the potential corruption of leaders. They created a number of principles to curb the power of government, making it difficult for government to trample the God-given rights of citizens. At the close of the Constitutional Convention, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the Constitution was bringing into existence. Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
A fully-devoted follower of Christ and professing born-again Christian, I said the sinner’s prayer while blindfolded in front of a firing squad of AK-47s aimed right at me. While my mother made me go to church growing up, it wasn’t until that instant in 1966 when I really understood the power of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. From that moment on, I knew He was with me – even in my darkest hours as a Prisoner of War. I am a member of First United Methodist Church in Plano. I also attend Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco where I enjoy the teachings of my friend, Pastor Chuck Swindoll.
Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?
Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.
I recently earned the endorsement of my friend, David Barton, from Wallbuilders. We share a love of country and proud legacy of faith we want our children and grandchildren to pass on to generations to come. That Judeo-Christian heritage is under attack and we’re doing our best to rekindle respect for the Constitution, reconnect with our Christian roots and reclaim our national motto: ONE NATION UNDER GOD. I voted to repeal, dismantle, and defund ObamaCare. I voted to defund Planned Parenthood. I voted to stop Obama’s Unconstitutional Amnesty for Illegals I strongly oppose Obama’s UNCONSTITUTIONAL Gun Control agenda I’ve publicly called for a STOP of Obama’s Syrian refugee “free-for-all” plan. I co-authored the original legislation to repeal the Wright Amendment. Full repeal became law in 2014 and has freed Love Field to offer direct flights at more competitive rates – a win for fiscal conservatives and free enterprise.

Additional comment from candidate:
As a lifelong fighter pilot, faith, family, and freedom are my hallmarks. They are nonnegotiable. It would be a tremendous honor to earn endorsements from the well-respected, conservative voters of Texas Values Action, AFA Action, United in Purpose, and Heritage Alliance. In addition, I’d like to share exciting news about one of my most recent congressional accomplishments. North Texas is getting a new, much-needed VA Clinic in Plano that is expected to open in spring of this year. This clinic is something that I have been working on for several years now on behalf of North Texas veterans. It took a lot of hard work and determination to get the attention of the VA Hospital system officials and then quite some time to convince them that the best location would be Plano. This new clinic, the first of its kind in Collin County, will serve thousands of North Texas veterans. This clinic is long overdue and I’m beyond thankful to have played a key role in landing the facility.
