Questionnaire

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.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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.

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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."

Strongly Disagree

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

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

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

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

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?

I believe as James Madison once said, “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many … may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Catholic

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.

The fact that I ran for Congress as a "Trump Conservative" and my answers to the Wisconsin Congressional Election 2016 Political Courage Test: https://votesmart.org/candidate/political-courage-test/108973/spencer-zimmerman/#.Wys6tKdKiM9

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

By fostering a business friendly environment that will create more jobs and opportunity.

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

Change current tax and insurance law to put health policies under control of the citizens by expanding the use of high-deductible policies with matching health savings accounts. This approach will avoid instituting "Soviet-style socialized medicine" and instead promote a health care industry that adheres to the American ideal of free-market capitalism to the benefit of the consumer.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Get out the way of free enterprise.

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

I served in the Air Force, was on duty during the September 11th terrorist attacks and received the Joint Service Achievement Medal for my actions that day.
