None of them

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

A human life should never be murdered

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

The understanding of individual liberty, God-given rights, and personal responsibilty.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Jesus Christ is my Savior. I follow the Teachings of the Bible as my guide and stand up for our God-given rights. He made each one of us special at conception and has given everyone purpose in this life. No one is outside of His love.

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.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Less Government Regulation, lowering corporate taxes, lowering income taxes, lowering/getting rid of the minimum wage.

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

In short: Keep the Government out of it! the longer answer is more difficult since the government has already been involved for so long. slowly working our way back to a free market system will allow companies to keep prices at a low competitive rate. At the same time, it will encourage Churchs and other non-profit organizations to stand up to help those truly in need, in a more personal, community-based environment.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Governments can help boost the economy by allowing competition and free market principles to take place. NOT by bailing out big businesses that should have been aloud to fail.

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

I believe that the hard-working, demanding jobs I have held prepared me for the Texas House. It has given me leadership experience, A never give up attitude and the ability to stand my ground. over the years I have worked very hard to become educated on the Issues and solidify my Beliefs and Principles. I am qualified for the Texas House because I can not be bought. I can not be persuaded by others to vote against the tax-payers interests. I have not been and will not be corrupted by special interest groups that seek to control the Texas house for personal gain.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: (469) 718-9285

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

I am 23, I want other young people to know that we are the future of this country. We need to start getting involved in our communities and making sure that the world in which we hand to our kids is even better than the world that is handed to us. Other generations are not to blame if we were the ones asleep.
