I am a Lutheran-Christian & Republican

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.

I am a firm Christian-Republican who believes in free market economics, limited government, especially at the federal level, individual liberty, a strong national defense, and traditional values. I also believe in very strong border security and am a very Pro-Trump supporter.

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

I do not believe in government control of healthcare for all. Obamacare was a failure.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should get out of the way and de-regulate their restrictions on the free market economy and the government needs to lower taxes across the board for all.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Lower taxes across the board. Lower the corporate tax from 21%-15%.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

By lowering the taxes across the board especially at the corporate level, so all business can begin to re-invest in their own business by hiring more people, which we are already seeing under the Trump Administration.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Social Security is a serious issue Americans are going to have to come to terms with very soon. The government has ruined social security and the entire program needs to be revamped. I’m partially in favor a privatized alternative for the upcoming generations.

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

I am a farmer, rancher, military veteran, successful business owner.

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