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.


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 Agree

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.


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.

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, Congress, Supreme Court The rest are just some of the freedoms the Constitution allows.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None God has a plan for every life. No politician or doctor can really decide once conceived which life is more important.

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

Man is not a perfect being. The founding fathers established a government by the people and for the people with checks and balances. So that people could be free to govern themselves and not one could enforce change alone. Wasn't it simply beautiful not to limit a free society?

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I was brought up Catholic. I say old Catholic. I was awaken one afternoon by a Baptist preacher that really gave me hope and I found it easy to admit I am just man, a sinner, but by the grace of God Jesus Christ was sent to forgive our sins and through the faithful belief in him we will have life everlasting. I am very comforted in this faith and that God has a plan. It puts me at ease.

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.

I am a God fearing man. I am one of 3 in my family to have served this Country for a career. I started my own business and really make my own way in life and believe everyone is responsible for their place in life. We are a family of strong traditional values. My wife and I have raised 2 daughters that are responsible young adults that voted right in April. I ran for State Assembly in 2014 and was called too conservative but I don't think that can be in federal government today.

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