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

Strongly Agree

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.

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.


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.


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

Additional regulations are needed to prevent climate change.

Strongly Disagree

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.

Strongly Agree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.


People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."


I support sanctuary cities.


It is OK for Congress to exempt itself from compliance with laws applicable to all citizens.

Strongly Disagree

I support the death penalty.


Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree

The United States should protect its sovereignty from the United Nations.

Strongly Agree

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


I voted in these primaries and general elections:

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?

There is no circumstance where we have the right to take the life of another human.

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

Much of our global actions have the opposite than desired outcomes and help spread the growth of Islamic terrorism. It would serve us better to each live in awareness of threats at home and strive to be a beacon on a hill that shines the light of freedom, hope, and love into a world of darkness.

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

Because of man's inherently sinful nature, no man can be trusted with power for power corrupts. J.R.R. Tolkien once said, "The most improper job of any many, even saints . . . is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity."

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born-again Christian. I believe in the inerrancy of Scripture and adhere to Pentecostal doctrines.

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.

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

It is primarily government regulations that limit competition, hinder entry into the market, and cause high prices for healthcare. Restricting government's involvement and allowing entirely free competition among pharmaceutical and insurance companies across the nation will increase the quality of health care and reduce costs for consumers.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should take a laissez-faire, hands-off approach to the economy. The free market works and grows best without government interference.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

We should eliminate the tax code. A federal tax on domestic income is unconstitutional even with the application of the Sixteenth Amendment.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

We must remove the government's involvement in the economy and allow the free market to grow and over time create jobs.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Social Security is a Ponzi scheme that is impossible to guarantee. We must honor our commitments to those who paid into the system while removing the system for future generations currently entering the job market.

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

My qualifications come from the business and technology worlds. As an entrepreneur, I've run my own businesses and know how to operate on a tight budget to remain profitable. As a programmer, I've spent my life tackling problems by developing creative solutions. I hold a graduate degree in business and currently studying law working toward a law degree.

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

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

Q4. I believe God defines marriage as between one man and one woman. I believe the government has no right to legislate marriage or use taxpayer or public funds to support or oppose any marriage. Q12. We as Christians are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel. The Founding Father's made it clear we should not become involved in entangling alliances. The primary focus of American governments should be the American homeland. We should, however, allow the free market to create defensive solutions that may be sold to assist Israel. Q17. Cities have a constitutional right to operate as sanctuary cities as long as allowed by their state law. If the policy creates internal issues, the free market will correct the situation as those supporting the cities economy will demand action or migrate outside the city. Q22. The best way to maintain peace is with a strong defense and the Founders understood the best defense is armed citizens.
