parental choice during complications of pregnancy

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

better border vetting and uphold our position on the Constitution as our rule of law

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

Greed, corruption, and degradation

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Saved by grace because the forgiveness of my sins through the resurrection of Jesus Christ

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?

Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Being a conservative is a label versus being a Christian Constitutionalist is a conviction. I could run my entire campaign on two issues..."Love your neighbor as yourself" and "the love of money is the root of all evil".

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

most Americans (75%) never use their health insurance. Understanding personal risk and personal expectations, by budget or needs is how a policy ought to be designed. We have enough money to provide basic care, preventative care, alternative care, wellness,and emergency care. The problem is misappropriations. Group packaging of insurances are the historical ways of making health insurance not affordable. A catastrophic pool and not being an accept reject state can help provide preexisting options and limitations.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Keeping corporate taxation low, preferably a flat tax or fair tax plan. Or a national sales tax in lieu of an income tax. Keeping U.S. opportunities open and providing honest open legislation helps to deter depression and anxiety, and breeds innovation. Many good ideas and opportunities are stolen by the DOD.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

A flat or Fair Tax could be reviewed or a National sales tax in lieu of an income tax. Make retired individuals tax exempt.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

inspire working provision

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Set the funding aside in an interest bearing fund and do not allow misappropriations or fund borrowing. Educate consumers on the Rule of 72

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

Being in the ministry for 35 years has equipped me to deal with individuals 24/7 at the worst of their worst. The word, "Ekklessia" in the Greek was translated church in the new testament. It actually means congress in Greek and its origins in Hebrew and Aramaic. Many places around the world still use the term," Ministry of..." to describe their branch distinctions. My 35 years on Ministry and 30 plus years of upper executive management have prepared me for the complexities and diversities of addressing difficult decisions and exploring options for genuine resolve in community.

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

With 11 children and 14 grandchildren, I know what it is like to live in the "REAL". The millionaires that become billionaires as politicians live on our planet, but not in our world. Yes , they think differently than you and I. Make different choice than you and I. Often, they build their future on the falsehoods of insider geo-political trading that they try to pawn off as legislation. It is time to take back our voice from the indebted PAC panderers that sell out for their seat to be purchased!
