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.
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.
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.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
Additional regulations are needed to prevent climate change.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
However morally repugnant abortion may be, the consequences of criminalization are worse. As the economy steadily grows, it becomes relatively cheaper to raise children, fewer people will have to make the terrible choice to abort.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
Eliminate gun free zones, and stop creating new enemies via collateral damage, and America will be just fine.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Government exists to protect people from each other, therefore the first concern is to protect people from the people in government.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
If doctors could function independently of enormous heavily regulated bureaucracies, more people would become doctors and specialists and meet market demand at equilibrium prices.
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
None. Every speculative government incentive program is paid for by the people known to be generating income at proven useful tasks. Every political scheme to shift resources is inherently wasteful.
What changes should be made to the tax code?
Drastic reduction and simplification across the board. A preferable compromise would be only taxing income above the poverty line, at a flat rate. If the cutoff were say $25k/yr, and the rate say 20%, then someone making $35k pays $2,000; someone making $125k pays $20k, etc.
What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
End regulations that create barriers to entry for new employers.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
Drastically reduce the federal budget on everything else.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
MO GOP Committeeman SD4 since 2012. St Louis City GOP Committeeman Ward 22 since 2010. I have operated a real estate business in North St. Louis City since 2010, and lived in North City since 2016. I have been the #1 buyer of tax seizure auction properties in St. Louis since 2011. I work full time exploring every single block of the most impoverished zipcodes in the state. I am intimately familiar with the depopulating effects of bad policy.
