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.

Strongly 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.

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

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.

No Answer

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

Strongly Agree

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.

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.

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

RAPE AND INCEST

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

The Founding Fathers recognized that men are fallible. They sought to keep men in positions of power from inflicting malice on the people through the separation of powers and by limiting the powers of government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God and Christ. I have nothing God didn’t give me and he has given me everything. I pray that on my judgment day I will have lived a life worthy of some if it.

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 made my position on these issues abundantly clear on my website.

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

Additional comment from candidate:

There are only 2 people on the planet I agree with 100% of the time, the man in the mirror and my wife. In the case of my wife my agreement will come only after considerable negotiation and compromise. I ask that people do not hinge their support based on a single issue but the totality of agreement.
