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.

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

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

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

(Did not answer)

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only when the life of the mother is in jeopardy.

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My faith is Christian and my religion is Evangelical Presbyterian. I strongly support individual's right to choose and practice his or her faith without government interference except when that practice prevents the free choice and practice of other individuals.

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.

(Did not answer)

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

Clean and complete repeal of ACA, Tort reform, and a separation of health care from health insurance by changing the regulations governing FSAs to allow rollover of funds from year to year and the addition of an annual stipend for each citizen of $500-$1000 which may be used to pay for routine healthcare. Ensure fiscal responsibility by allowing a cash-out of the account when the individual qualifies for Medicare.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Limited to none. The government should establish the foundations and boundaries of domestic commerce while enforcing international policies that seek to balance the differences between nations.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

No deductions for items should be allowed that favor one state over another. Permanent repeal of estate tax. Establish protections against over taxation of private property.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Allow the entrepreneurial and ingenuity of Americans to freely develop by reducing regulations and lowering the tax burden.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Establish a true separate fund for those 45 or older that would be funded to support the current system from all receipts. Next establish a "new" social security fund that would be for those who are younger than 45. This would require participants to reach age 70 for receipt of full benefits. It would still allow reduced benefits before that age but at a lower amount than the current system. This "new" system would allow 20% of the funds to be placed within one or more of the funds available under the thrift savings plan available to all federal government employees.

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

Having served in leadership roles in both the military and private sector has given me a unique set of leadership skills and technical understanding that is needed. Being able to comprehend, break down and solve complex problems in a way that unifies diverse groups is what has allowed me to be successful.
