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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
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?
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.
