Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

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.

Neutral

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.

Strongly Disagree

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

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.

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.

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.

Strongly Disagree

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.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Disagree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

Agree

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

Neutral

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

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

Agree

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

Disagree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Neutral

Islamic law (Sharia) does not pose a threat to the United States and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

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.

Constitution, Supreme Court, Congress, Voters

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion should be allowed under circumstances of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother is in danger. Abortion should not be a means of birth control.

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

Man's nature to dominate others. America's Founders identified the very nature of man, that which is to control and dominate and determined that a government balanced and overseen by its constituent parts would function slowly and in the best interest of those it represented.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Conservative-reform Jewish. Family, country, community. I am a firm believer in the simple concept that charity begins at home and that we must take care of ourselves before attempting to help others.

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

Somewhat Conservative

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

While I have not served in Congress or other representative capacities, it is my position that the US Government and States for that matter are limited by the people that founded them and that social matters are best left for the states and that fiscal, immigration and defense issues are the responsibility of the federal government. Government in general should be left to the matters identified and limited during its creation and should not be allowed to extend itself into areas that traditionally are left to society to decide.

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