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.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly 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, Voters, Constitution

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Very rare Doctor-certified eminent danger of death to the mother. Police reported rape or court discovered incest where criminal charges are filed by the pregnant mother if she is an adult, or by one or both parents (if pregnant woman is a jeuvenile) or a judge if no parents are found, then certified by state-filed affidavit, confirming that the giving birth to the conceived child would probably emotionally, irrecoverably, destroy the life of the mother. This MUST be a legal option to avoid state coercion to give birth and destroy/kill the mother who did not choose any sexual relationship and often is a date-rape drugged child.

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

Evil lust for power: all-power. It is the Satanic lust to control all things and remove all personal liberty and freedom.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe profoundly that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, my personal Savior, and the Savior of all the world. If mankind will but turn to Him and call upon His mighty name, they may also be saved in the eternal Kingdom of our God in the beautiful after-life of Heaven. I believe the Holy Bible is the sacred Word of God and that God's enclosed wisdom, counsel and commandments in that holy book will bless all civilizations who honor God by following His laws and making laws that honor God while still respecting the God-given freedom to mankind to choose their own path in life. I do not believe in "Separation of Church and State" (an evil substitution myth by the anti-God Liberal agenda) but rather I believe that the Government must NEVER prohibit the Free Exercise of Religion", exactly as the Constitution reads.

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.

27 years in the US Army, with 24 years as an Infantry officer. I never met a Liberal or a Democrat amongst all the officers I served with as liberals NEVER offer their lives for their fellow men in combat, as we do every day in my infantry world of selfless service to preserve the Constitution and her heaven-sent freedoms.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you.

Additional comment from candidate:

What an honor to be an American and fight to protect and defend the Constitution in Washington DC! If we don't send a proven, capable, tested warrior-leader to DC to fight for the preservation of the Constitution, we will lose our Constitution and our freedoms!
