Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).


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


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.


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

Strongly Agree

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.


It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.


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.


Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self-interest into the most productive economic system there is.


Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions until they are economically feasible.


Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

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


People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.

Strongly Agree

Planned Parenthood should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.


Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Rape, incest and when the health of the mother and fetus is at risk. Or when there is medical evidence which would suggest that the health of the child after delivery would be such that the quality of its life would significantly diminished.

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

Man, by his nature seeks power. Over himself, over others..generally considering his own needs/requirements first. By defining and separating powers within the framework of the constitution the founders ensured that no one particular body had complete autonomy. The executive, judicial and legislative branches must come together and jointly enact and enforce our country's laws/policies.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe God is the father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and all who believe in him and internalize, baptize and publicly profess their faith in him, by their actions and his direction are on the proper Heavenly course.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?


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

As a former retired Bibb County, Georgia Deputy Sheriff I dealt with a full spectrum of issues from a professional but business standpoint, showing compassion where possible. I have been involved in the political process for 40 plus years, working in/on city, county, state and federal elections. I do not vote party but person.
