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.

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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Never

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Stop allowing immigration from countries that have a state-sponsored religion.

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

Men (human beings) are inherently evil. Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that around 2000 years ago a man named Jesus, lived, died, and rose from the dead. He now sits at the right hand of God and has promised eternal life to anyone who will put their faith in God, through Jesus Christ. My values are firmly rooted in God's word, which I believe is the Bible.

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.

Boy Scouts of America 2013. Just google "Thomas Dillingham" Boy Scouts.

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

Repeal Obamacare, roll back Obama era expansions, medical tort reform, and regulate drug companies.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government plays an important part in our economy, and should ensure Americans are able to fairly compete on the world market. We should first eliminate all multi-lateral trade deals, then limit all trade deals to no more than 4 years. All trade deals should be unilateral. Finally, companies who export jobs while calling it "automation" should pay a VERY LARGE tax.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Flat income tax 25%, no deductions, no loopholes, no excuses.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Bring jobs back to America by leveling the playing field for Americans on the global stage.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Eliminate the Social Security system for retirement benefits, and replace it with a BOND based system. Bonds begin to mature at age 65, and should be able to be passed on as an asset upon death. Move disability to a National Welfare system

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

I meet the Constitutional Requirements to hold office. There are no other requirements. To demand anything more is unAmerican and roles back the vision set forth by our forefathers.

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

You can't fix stupid even with a "College Degree," some people get it and some people don't. Common Sense has become rare because we value manmade certificates and accreditations over the way God made us. God made us all for his purposes despite what this world would have you think. Romans 9:21 Does not the potter have the right to make out of the same lump of clay some pottery for special purposes and some for common use? Proverbs 3:7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.
