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.

Strongly 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.

Strongly 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.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly 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 Disagree

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.

Strongly 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.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly 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.

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

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, Voters, Congress, Supreme court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only the life of the mother BUT with current medical advances, where doctors can operate in the womb on the baby, I would say that the mother's life vary rarely is in a situation where both can be saved if the pregnancy is far enough along.

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

They felt that eventually given too much power any single branch could overstep its bounds and become tyrannical, which could lead again to a monarch rather than a republic. Eventually power corrupts, therefore it was necessary to include checks and balances

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. Catholic specifically. My wife is a Baptist. I believe in God, the father almighty, creator of Heaven and earth - I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. My values are consistent with the idea that All men are created equal and deserve equal opportunity but not equal outcomes. Each person should be able to achieve anything that their ability and knowledge can take them.

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 am not a politician with a voting record, I can only refer to my lifestyle. I am an avid shooter, hunter and family man. I have a Concealed Cary permit for years now. I am a businessman with a record of high customer service. I have donated to the RAFA clinic and to the Vets Memorial in Paris, Tx. Also donated to the Powderly Fire department. I have used Face Book for some time now , I wear my conservative values on my sleeve on FB and I am a strident Constitutional Conservative. I am a self made man from running my own business for the last 40 years successfully.

Additional comment from candidate:

I am a Constitution Conservative Businessman who will work hard to return our country back to the Republic that it was intended to be. With Liberty and Freedom for all. I believe that the harder you work, the luckier you get. and that the government has no money until it takes it from the people. IT is time that we take our country back. Back from the insider politicians who have made the 5 counties that surround Washington DC, the richest counties in America. We the people pay, as the government spends wildly. They tax us quietly and hand our money back very loudly but with strings attached as if they know better than us! I am a 2nd amendment defender. I am a 10th amendment advocate who would like to see the power back to the states and get the Federal government back to LIMITED enumerated as intended. I would also like to see the 16th amendment (Income tax) repealed and move to a fair or flat tax God Bless America and God Bless Texas!
