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.

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.

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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe the only area where there might be a possibility is if the mothers life is in danger. This would be a case by case basis and I would input that great exhausted effort must be placed on saving both lives before making a life ending decision.I would also like to add that many medical experts have come forward stating that abortion is never necessary to save the life of a mother.

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

I firmly believe radical Islam is not just a religion but a political system. Therefore such beliefs are a threat to the U.S and the constitution.

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

Their faith and life experience from the tyrannical government they freed themselves. They knew what a corrupt government was capable of and guarded this nation from it with the constitution.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Protestant Christian. My beliefs are rooted in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

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.

No Answer Yet

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

There needs to be reforms on all levels and separation from government as much as possible. It is a complicated issue but I would start there.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Help small businesses flourish. Reform how we look at employment.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

No Answer Yet

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Pass business friendly policies that promote growth.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I am not a big supporter in the social security system in place. I think giving the control back to the individual is the way to go. You control your own money better than the government. If such changes would happen, I would support legislation of those that have paid their social security to get in return what was promised.

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

My experience in the U.S. Army prepared me for many life experiences no taught in school. Those lessons are priceless.

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

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

I stand for Faith, Family and Freedom. I will have your back in congress if you elect me as your representative. God bless you.
