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.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Never - life is precious and our technology now allows for so much and I can't believe that the life of the mother could every be compromised to a place that would require the murder of the child.

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

All that is necessary to ensure that these United States remain a beacon of hope and light to the world. We are destined by the Lord to be that shining city on a hill.

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

Ego, pride, power and vanity is at the root of needing a separation of powers and protect WE THE PEOPLE

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

It is who I am, it is why I do what I do. The Lord has blessed me with such a passion to fight for all that we were founded on, all that we can be and all that the enemy seeks to destroy. I believe that all that I am is in Christ Jesus and He is the reason that I will never give up - never walk away from fighting for my children, grand children and the lives of future generation. If the USA falls the world falls and I must be able to say that I did all I could while on this earth for THE Kingdom of Heaven. I am pro-life and believe that Jesus is the only way to the Father!

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.

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

By removing restrictions in regards to buying across state lines. Remove the government form controlling the medical devices etc. Remove the restrictions and let the free market determine the price points etc. Healthcare is not a right -

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government needs to let the market determine prices and ensure that the businesses have an atmosphere that is conducive to growth, prosperity and productivity.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

A flat tax - simplify. Should not be more than 10% - a government taking more than a tithe is not acceptable.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Remove the incentives to not work and people will go back to the workforce. We have made it too easy to stay home and collect a check.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Stop allowing the government to raid the funds that should and must remain untouched by those in DC.

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

With the doors that the Lord opened to me over my entire life I have taken each one, worked hard and better myself and become a business woman that built a very successful company that employs many, many people. Side note, the Founders meant for those that served our country to be focused on bettering the country not themselves, they wanted those that would fight for the growth and prosperity of a nation not their own pocketbooks. All in all, I believe Founders wanted servants in DC not career politicians.
