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

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.

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

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

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None. Life begins at conception. The innocent, defenseless, unborn child should be protected, even when conception occurs under rare instances of evil and criminal circumstances.

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

The experiences with the British Monarchy caused America's Founders to realize government's role needs to be limited in scope and accountable to the people. We did not throw off the rule of one king 3000 miles away over 200 years ago in order to be ruled by 3000 bureaucrats one mile away today.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to Earth to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. He was born of a virgin, crucified to death, entombed, rose to life on the third day and now sits at the right hand of God.

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.

See our website at for detailed information concerning my beliefs on many of these issues.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to reduce unemployment is economic growth - through reduced taxes and reduced government interference in our economy.

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

We need to allow the free market to determine costs and coverages while reducing government interference in healthcare. The theory sold to the American people that Obamacare was going to reduce insurance premiums and improve coverage has been debunked. Instead, our tax dollars have gone to individual insurance subsidies and insurance company bailouts. The result...we are paying higher insurance premiums and higher taxes while receiving worse coverage. Government interference in our economy is not the answer to the challenges we face.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

We need to allow the Free Market more influence on the economic decisions of Texans. Thus, reducing government's role in the economy, especially in the realm of taxation so businesses can have more money to invest and innovate.

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

As a son, brother, husband, father, small business owner, taxpayer, and Texan, my conservative values have served my family well. They will also serve District 59 well.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:, 254-485-6648

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

I am a strong supporter of public education, as my wife taught in public school before our daughters were born. If we truly want the "pursuit of happiness" in America then we must provide education. In addition, I oppose sending public funds to private schools through vouchers.
