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

Strongly 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.

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

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

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


George Washington's comment that “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society” is still true today.

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe that the sanctity and right to human life should never be violated, and that there is no reason to end a human life because it is deemed inconvenient.

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

The aim of government is to grow government. It naturally becomes corrupt or inept. Government is run by people who are not perfect at best and evil at worst. Government reflects the image of those elected and appointed. Government may be necessary but it is not necessarily good. A limited government keeps the power in small local pockets and is then much easier to oversee and guard against in that way.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a strong Bible believing Christian. My faith is a central part of who I am and a central core for my candidacy for office. My religion is personal to me, and my relationship with Christ is the center of it all. The church that I had been attending was Assemblies of God. Now I attend a non-denominational church. I am a conservative because I believe that is the political view that most lines up with my religious worldview, and I am a Republican, instead of a libertarian, because I believe in the moral integrity and sovereign authority of a nation. Family is very important to me. My family has always been there for me and I am always there for my family. I am getting married in August and I am hoping to start a family soon. I want to make Wisconsin an even better place for that family. Furthermore, I believe a strong nuclear family is most important for a strong society. Historically speaking, when the family crumbles, so does a society begin to crumble

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.

No Answer.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to bring down unemployment is to get government out of the economy. Specifically, reduce or remove regulations, taxes, restrictions, inflation, and bureaucracy allow for greater circulation of currency. This model creates jobs, innovation, wealth, and prosperity.

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

I am a strong support of Direct Primary Care. Through this model, healthcare will be cheaper and efficient, with price guarantee. This has worked wherever it has tried with both the doctors and patients much happier and better off.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should not play a role in the economy and should be left to the free market.

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

I served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps. I have studied politics since I was a sophomore and history since elementary school. When living in Montana, I studied their Department of Transportation and will adapt it to our own needs in Wisconsin. In 2009, I lost an Uncle and a Cousin to a bad car accident with Illegal Immigrants hired by a landscaping company, and last year I lost a 2nd to a repeat drunk driver. I will be tough on crime so no one else has to suffer what my family and I went through.
