Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

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

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.

Free-market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

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

HISTORY SHOWS THE CONSTITUTION IS INSPIRED BY THE JUDEO CHRISTIAN VALUES IN THE BIBLE WHICH WERE HIGHLY REGARDED BY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS. THE FOUNDING FATHERS WANTED TO ENSURE THAT ANY LEADER IN THE UNITED STATES WOULD NEVER HAVE THE ABILITY TO TREAT OUR CITIZENS AS THE BRITISH KING HAD TREATED HIS. IN AMERICA THE PEOPLE OWN THE GOVERNMENT THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T OWN THE PEOPLE.

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

I have always fought for the promotion of conservative principles. • This includes fighting Voter Fraud where I worked on legislation to increase penalty from class A Misdemeanor to a Felony 1. • Fought LGBT discrimination ordinances in San Antonio and Houston. In San Antonio I started a recall of our Liberal Mayor Julian Castro. • Securing the border: I worked on legislation to elevate the penalty of those convicted of murder while human trafficking to a death penalty offense. • Defending life working with prolife groups on HB2 previously, and now on closing loopholes being exploited by liberal politicians like the San Antonio city council. • Fighting for property rights and fighting against the city of San Antonio who is bent on opening a new regional planned parenthood in an under zoned residential area, without the consent of the neighbors. • Working hard against the next generation of Liberals Conservative,Texas Real Estate Commissioner, Oil & Gas experienced businessman
