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.
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.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
Additional regulations are needed to prevent climate change.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.
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.
Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."
I support sanctuary cities.
It is OK for Congress to exempt itself from compliance with laws applicable to all citizens.
I support the death penalty.
Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.
The United States should protect its sovereignty from the United Nations.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
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?
All life is precious and a gift. We as a nation should have a goal of zero abortions.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
The United States should continue to dismantle those that wish to and have the means to harm us. We should continue to encourage nations that harbor terrorists and their organizations that peace will bring prosperity to their people and lack of evidence to support peace shall be seen as support for terror. We will not participate economically with a terror state and we will encourage the world to vacate any attempts to support or engage a nation supporting terror. The rest of the world will know through the leadership of the United States that peace brings prosperity and to operate contrary to peace is an ill advised venture leading to certain defeat.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Men will attempt to rule over one another, the establishment of equal rights and the equal treatment under the law that gives all the ability to pursue their lives as they see fit. The Founders knew as well that consolidation of powers would lead quickly to tryanny and that a government divided among the states would produce a better chance of our Republic’s survival. Our founders also were cognizant of governments tendency to over reach and impead liberty, limited government remains paramount.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Free Market Healthcare or insurance is the only way to insure that the definition remains personal and the choice of how we care for ourselves remains ours. I will fight for a full repeal of Obama-care and restoration of free market based insurance plans accessible across state lines to provide the greatest competition among providers.
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
The government should be out of the way of our economy, our government should protect our jobs from foreign goods that undermine our workers. We as a nation do have infrastructure needs that the government should insure and maintain most efficient routes to market. Our government should engage other nations and promote the export of our goods. Government should not micro manage industries or give favor to any. Government should maintain a level playing feild and not pick the winners or create losers. The greatest economy on the planet was built by us not government.
What changes should be made to the tax code?
The tax code needs to be simplified across the board. Reduce taxation, reduce regulation, reduce complication. The taxation of the citizenry of the United States will be fairer, flattter and simplified.
What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
Every time taxes are lowered on individuals and businesses the economy has the capital to grow. Taxes take money from an economy and convert it government. Government does not produce, it takes. Unemployment rates drop as investments are made by individuals and businesses. When individuals and businesses pay fewer taxes they have more to invest. Balancing the Federal Budget will go a long way to promoting a healthy, stable and growing economy.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
We must change the way future Social Security beneficiaries engage the system. I said future, promises made will be kept to those currently on or close to retirement. Social Security has been fleeced by the government and needs to be restored, it is not another form of taxation it is our savings we have volunteered to the government to be a steward of and give back to us at retirement. Unfortunately it has become part of the general funds of our government and mismanaged. Faith has to be restored in the system in order for our youth to believe it will be there for them. The simple solution is to have Social Security do what it is supposed to do.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
I am the only Candidate on the Republican Primary Ballot for U.S. Senate that has been previously elected to a legislative position. I am the only Candidate that has 30 years in the private sector. The last 20 years I have been a Commercial Real Estate Broker, helping hundreds of businesses find places to do there business. I have served on numerous community and professional boards as well as non-profit boards that serve children and adults with disabilities. I am not funded by any group or interest other than family and friends that have honored me with what they could afford to give. I am a professional negotiator that understands how to get things done and I know what we want done, a smaller, more efficient government that promotes liberty and individual responsibility.
E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:
