Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
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.
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 a livable income.
It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
There are NO circumstances where abortion should be allowed. Babies with fetal abnormalities are still made in the image of God, and their lives should be protected. It is NOT okay to abort a baby conceived in rape or incest for the same reason. Abortion in the case of rape or incest is punishing the baby for the sins of its father. If the life of the mother is in danger, every effort should be made to save both the mother and the baby.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Each man or woman is born with a sinful nature and will become more and more likely to give in to selfish motivations of greed, dishonesty, etc., the more power they are given.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am an evangelical, born-again Christian. I believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God and is the highest law and standard for our behavior. I believe that mankind is created in the image of God, but is born with a sinful nature. Since we must be holy, pure, and blameless to enter into heaven and to have fellowship with God, Jesus came to earth in human form, lived a perfect life, died for our sins, and rose again. If we accept God's free gift of salvation, we will have our sins forgiven and obtain eternal life. I believe in the sanctity of human life, marriage between a man and a woman, parental rights, limited government, and religious freedom.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
Enacting business-friendly legislation with low taxes and fewer regulations encourages people to set up businesses here. Getting people off welfare encourages them to seek employment. Having quality education where students must behave, study, and learn makes them employable.

Having fewer regulations on which companies can offer coverage in Texas and fewer regulations on the type of coverage they offer would help greatly.

Government should boost the economy by keeping taxes and regulations low and staying out of the way of entrepreneurs as much as possible. Government should not choose winners and losers by providing corporate welfare for some companies and industries and not others.
