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 health insurance.

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.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

This issue was decided by the Supreme Court in 1973 and should be enforced as such.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Maintain and enhance a strong military and support those nations who stand with the United States in the fight against global terrorism.

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

Human emotion and self interests make man susceptible to corruption and influence. Therefore, a separation of powers is necessary to prevent and limit the possibilities of dictatorship.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Christian and follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ which promote love, compassion, tolerance and acceptance of all humans.

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.

Extreme views in both major political parties have been devalued the purpose of a federal government - which is to serve the greater good of the people.

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

Allow private insurance carriers to provide insurance coverages across state lines. This opens the door for competition in the market place that will drive down the costs of coverage.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Federal government should make sure economic policies provide growth opportunities to individuals and small business - limiting stifling regulations and allowing the job creators to flourish. "The most effective social program is a job" - Ronald Reagan

What changes should be made to the tax code?

The recent tax changes that took effect on January 1st are a tremendous step forward in simplifying and easing tax burdens. I would still like to see fewer tax brackets.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

A public/private partnership that expands apprenticeship programs and provides for the funding (similar to GI Bill) of experiential education and certification in vocational trades. While publicized unemployment rates are historically low - and specifically in ethic communities - these unemployment rates do not account for actual unemployment. They do not include those who are not actively seeking employment. We must incent individuals to come off of government assistance.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

A staging of an increase to age eligibility for Social Security - by at least two years and potentially four.

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

16 years of real life participation in free market competitive industry and an MBA.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: 706.224.3773

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

A representative democracy requires of us the courage to listen to all voices in order to understand the most correct path and decision on policy. It is a fool's errand to believe that social issues are a black and white phenomenon. Life happens in the gray. Strong economic policies that empower the people are the most correct path toward a unified nation.
