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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
None. The intentional taking a life via abortion is always murder, no exceptions. However, I would not vote against a bill that moved towards this goal simply because it was not as strong as I would like (i.e., had a rape/incest/life of the mother exception in it).
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
Reduce regulations, taxes, and other government-created obstacles which discourage investors and business owners from deploying their capital to start or expend their businesses, which will lead to the hiring of new employees.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
- Assist in promoting a regulatory scheme which allows for the sale of insurance across state lines. - Advocate for the removal of federal regulation of health insurance (i.e., repealing ObamaCare). - Advocate for expanded choice and options available within health insurance plans at the state level (i.e., remove state-mandated requirements that drive up the cost of insurance policies). - Work to ensure that Medicaid funds are block-granted to the state. - Work to investigate high-risk pools or other free-market or innovative solutions for those that may not be able to currently purchase health insurance
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
The only role that government should play in boosting the economy is in ensuring an atmosphere of low taxation, minimal regulation, and fair and efficient courts, while focusing the spending of public tax dollars on the core functions of government (like public safety, water, and transportation infrastructure).
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
I have experience as both an attorney and as a small business owner, in addition to being active in promoting conservative candidates and causes. As an attorney, I stood up to defend the little guy, as well as our 2nd Amendment rights in the courtroom, and learned how to read and analyze legislation and other similar legal documents. As a small business owner, I have experience balancing a budget, meeting a payroll, and paying taxes. I know how hard it can be to start and grow a business, and that it is our small businesses that are the true job creators in our economy. As a volunteer and an activist I have been involved for over a decade promoting and working for conservative causes and candidates at the local, state, and national level.
