Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

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.

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.

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

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

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Agree

I support using a party caucus to nominate my party's candidate for Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, and I pledge to vote for my party's nominee.

Yes

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None.

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

The fallen nature of man. Man's inclination to sin.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Man is born sinful and in need of a Savior. Jesus Christ, God's only Son came to the earth and lived a sinless life and died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the 3rd day. Salvation is only through Jesus Christ. The Bible is God's holy word and it is infallible. Christ wants a personal relationship with His believers. He wants us to live according this his Word.

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.

I have fought to stop a toll road in my county. It was crony capitalism and the road was not needed. I was the spokesman for a local PAC to oppose a proposed new property tax from Paris Junior College. I would like to see abortion abolished. I want Constitutional Carry.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce taxes and regulations on businesses. When business owners have more of their money they will hire more people to work for them and they will spend more money with other businesses.

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

Allow Doctors to set prices that can be advertised. People can price shop doctors and let the free-market sort out the price and successful businesses. Allow people to buy Insurance across state lines.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

They should provide dependable and suitable roads for commerce. They should provide protection for business owners to operate in a safe community. They should provide a justice system that people can depend on to punish wrongdoers. Their role should be minimal.

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

I have a bachelors in Speech Communication. I have another one in Accounting and a Masters degree in Theology. I believe my education has taught me how to study, research and communicate the information. My background in the ministry points to my heart and desire to protect Religious Liberty. And strangely enough, being a youth minister has prepared me to deal with immaturity, even from grown men. Our small business has helped me to see real life scenarios of regulations and taxes hurting small business.
