Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

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.

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.

The federal government should establish Common Core as a nationwide academic standard for high school graduation.

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.

Disagree

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

Agree

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

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with public funds.

God Constitution Supreme Court - interprets laws' constitutionality without having any policing power whatsoever Congress - writes the laws as afforded/guided (ideally) by the people they represent in our democratic republic

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I would prefer that abortion never be an option. I hope that all life could be protected and treasured. However, I understand why one may consider it under circumstances including rape and incest.

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

The nature of man to pervert power and seek absolute power.

Very spiritual Raised Roman Catholic Practice Catholic Pro Life Prayerful - along with my lifelong Catholic wife Follow Christ's commandments for us Commune with my brothers and sisters, help them along the way Serve others as Christ has served us with His Life, Death, and Resurrection.

Additional comment from candidate:

Question 12: Current laws must be enforced Question 13: America is not a "pure democracy" Question 17: As a Catholic, I see marriage as a sacrament of my faith as given by God. America is a secular entity with religious freedom, including freedom for those whose faith differs from mine on the issue of the definition of marriage. I agree that marriage is between one man and one woman at one time. Question 18: We must be able to validate each voter in an election. That may not only be through photo ID. Question 22: The US Constitution is the supreme law of the law. Sharia will not be instituted in America nor will it ever supersede the Constitution..
