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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only when the Mother and Baby can not be Saved.

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

It is the SIN nature in man, for they understood thru world history how and why men would do that is wrong for money and power.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and gives me the guide lines in the Bible on how to live my life to please him and give him all the glory. This will guide me on how I would vote in the US Senate on Bills that would be right and just for all.

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 have spoken to public officials and Leaders from time to time about important issues and have encouraged them to vote and act for what was right. Now sometimes they do not do what is right and just and do challenge them when they are wrong.

Additional comment from candidate:

I would have voted against the TPP Treaty that Mike Crapo Voted for. Since the Treaty was Fast Tracked, I do not believe he had time to read most of the Treaty, let alone research the far reaching effects that this Treaty would have on our Country and the American Workers and their wages.
