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.

Strongly Agree

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

There are no circumstances where Abortion is acceptable. And, the only time a Dr. should be allowed to give treatment that will knowingly end a pregnancy is when the mother’s life is in imminent, severe danger. Never should abortion be allowed simply to end a pregnancy that is unwanted.

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

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. In our natural state mankind is selfish, prideful, arrogant, and our hearts are wicked, there is no good in us. Only through the saving grace of Jesus Christ is any righteousness found in man. That is why the founders limited how much power any one government group or individual was given.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I'm a worthless sinner saved by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ, through no merit of my own. I believe the Bible is literally true and despite my many failures strive to serve the Lord Jesus Christ every day.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I have been endorsed by the Major conservative organizations in Texas including: Texas Values Action, Texas Right to Life, Texans for Fiscal Responsibility, Texas Homeschool Coalition, as well as multiple Conservative office holders including Senator Brian Birdwell, and Railroad Commissioner Wayne Christian. I also openly challenged Byron Cook one of the least conservative members of the Texas house in 2016.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce the size of government, the number, and complexity of regulations, lower taxes, and let the free market work.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Get government, especially the federal government out of healthcare completely.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Governments role in boosting the economy should be limited to providing a fair playing field for businesses to compete in, through limited simple regulations applied equally to everyone, low taxes, and stable sound currency.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

Most importantly having personally knocked on thousands of doors I know better than anyone else, exactly what concerns the voters of this district have, and the kind of representative they want. I also have a Bachelor’s Degree from Texas A&M University, Executive Management experience, and extensive political experience with multiple campaigns.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I believe we are in the middle of a volatile time in the United States. Christian values are openly under attack, integrity, self-control, common sense, and honesty have been declared all but dead by Hollywood and the mainstream media. I have no personal political aspirations other than to serve those in my community. I am running for this office because I believe there is a deep need in America, a need for Christian leadership, from individuals willing to sacrifice for future generations. I do not know the planes the Lord has for this nation or for myself, but am confident in his unfailing love, and will continue to seek and serve him in whatever path he leads me and my family down.
