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.

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 pain and suffering of the child calls for it or the mother's life is in danger.

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

Man has both good and bad nature within and the Constitution protects us from the worst in ourselves. Greed, corruption, cruelty, excess, rash behavior, etc...

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am Greek Orthodox and my beliefs and values are my own.

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 fought for the Republic my entire life after swearing an oath to the Constitution. I volunteered four times to go and fight in Iraq, volunteering twice to embed with the Iraqi Army. I will never ask anyone to sacrifice or serve in a capacity greater than what I have already given or am prepared to give. Does that make me very conservative? I believe it does. If nothing else, it certainly proves that I am a patriot.

Additional comment from candidate:

The past few years have made me reflect on the legacy I am going to leave to my sons. Like any parent, I am concerned about their education, their security, and the country I will leave behind for them and for their children. I have spent my career striving to make the world a better, safer place. Now, I’ve stood down from the front lines, but I have not left the fight. I am ready for the fight of my life: to ensure a better future for my sons, for your children, and for the Republic.
