Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in a true living God as described in the Bible. That he sent his Son to die on the cross of Calvary so that my sins would be washed away.

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 dad was a Vietnam Vet, My grandfather was a WWII Vet, my great-grandfather was a WWI Vet. I was raised as a Missionary Baptist. We were taught and still live God, Country, Family. These are not just words but a way of life. I took an oath back in 1989, that oath never expires. Basically I wrote a blank check up to and including my life, if necessary for this country. That check has not been cashed. I am not a career politician, I have a love for my Country and wish to continue to serve. I can not serve on the battlefield anymore, so I have chosen to enter politics to continue to serve my country.

Additional comment from candidate:

I believe that the US Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land. That no laws from outside influences should trump the US Constitution. That we need to take care of our Vets before illegals or refugees. That illegal aliens are just that, illegal and should be deported. That refugees need to be relocated closer to their country and not here. That America is the best and finest Country ever in the history of the world. America is freedoms last stance and we should give extra special care to ensure that freedom will forever shine. I am the blue collar candidate, I am the one that has dug ditches for a living, swept floors, work in the auto plants making car parts for a living. I understand the struggle that almost all Americans go through just to pay the bills. I most identify with the majority of Americans when the choices are which bill to pay and leftovers again for dinner. I am the peoples candidate in this race.
