Strongly Disagree

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Disagree

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.

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.

The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.

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

More restrictive gun control laws are needed to protect public safety.

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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

life of the mother, early term, severe deformity, I believe in using all options to reduce abortion to nearest zero except make a woman or her dr. criminals for seeking an early term abortion.

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

I think the founders and ourselves today confront our problems, make a plan, take step one maybe two and then improvise as needed. I believe we need a constitutional convention today exclusively to broaden, to strengthen, and apply the bill of rights to every human citizen.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My spiritual beliefs are private, I believe myself a Christian, that Jesus lived the way we should try to live, I believe in a creator but beyond that is personal.

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

I have no record (arrest not included)I am a tx liberal that's 1500 miles from a MA liberal or a CA liberal. I own guns and believe that right "shall not be infringed" I believe in borders and those here illegally should not be citizens. My experience is I'm not a politician nor will I ever be. Cooperation is smarter than aggression.

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

Additional comment from candidate:

I'm not a politician, I don't have a real campaign, I would not beg for money, electing millionaire-billionaire beggars may be part of our problem. I don't think I have a chance to win, that's ok because I'm trying to propose and promote concrete ideas that I and others are working towards to change the way we live, not incremental or cosmetic change we need metamorphous change that's caterpillar to butterfly we are in the cocoon. It's up to us to set us free.
