I voted in these elections:

2016 General Election, 2016 Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I do not believe in abortion. Around 43% of abortions are done between the ages of 15 and 24 years old. The human brain doesnt fully develop consequence recognition until around 24 years old. I believe that all states should at the minimum have a mandatory class people should take before having an abortion. This way they can learn that there are other options besides abortion. Also that they may feel a certain way later on in life when they do decide to raise a child. Having to live with an uneducated decision that they will regret for the rest of their life. I firmly do not believe that abortion should in any way be funded by taxpayers.

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

Whatever possible that is not unconstitutional.

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

The belief in "Natural Rights". Also they wanted a lasting government. They wanted a seperation of power, In order to maintain checks and balances. They knew that greed had destroyed nations in the past, They did not want that for us here in America. They also did not want the government to overstep , That is why they created the "Bill Of Rights", The second amendment protecting all other rights. They believed in Freedom and Liberty.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in good, I believe in god. That being said I do not judge others, or their beliefs. I try to spread awareness of what is right whenever possible. Also I believe in "Natural Right's" As well as standing up for Liberty. I believe in America and Freedom.

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.

I do not believe in socialism, I have stated this to many sources. Whenever you take from someone and give it to someone else, That is not liberty, that is tyranny. I stand for liberty, not on liberty. This would in my opinion be a more conservative outlook.

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

I would promote an open healthcare system. Opening up healthcare nationwide, Taking out a lot of the expensive over regulations. I would promote the "Free Market" heathcare model, Letting companies compete which will reduce the pricing greatly. With competition will also come better coverage and other options inclusive in the lower price. We have led the world using capitalism, It works if, we let it.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Start reforming the size of government to a smaller size. We need a much more limited government, less waste. We can do this through eliminating unneeded programs and agencies. Then the government should lower income tax. We didnt have an income tax until the civil war, then not again until the 1900's. We still had public schools and other necessities. If we lowered our deficit , balanced the budget and lowered our debt, we would be on our way to greatly reducing income tax. A huge part of that would be, for the government to reduce its size. Also de regulating wherever possible. Regulations cost money, and can also sacrifice peoples Liberty's.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Lower taxes.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Through job growth. The more jobs, the higher the demand. The higher the demand the higher the pay, etc. Also through spreading awareness on what types of jobs are available, and their pay. There are electricians making $30-$40 or more per hour that went through paid on the job training. There are many positions that pay well, that people are unaware of. Bring back and invest in trade schools, etc.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

For starters, first no more "borrowing" from social security. Also lets include in the balanced budget, paying back what was borrowed through a reasonable period of time.

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

I currently manage a business with 27 employees that brings in over $10 million in revenue annually. I have been a successful business leader for going on 14 years. When it comes to my profession, I do not think that there's been a day that has gone by that I havent dealt with corporate or team level politics. What motivates Cindy does not motivate John. What I say to Cindy , I may not say to John because of "perception" differences , etc. I have a very solid political foundation. I also have very strong leadership and management skills. I am also a single father of 2 daughters, and I know the struggles of daily life. I want to take what I have learned, and a strong overall foundation of skills and values to Washington DC. I want to put that foundation to work for "We The People". I will use my skills and experience to continue to stand up for Liberty and for our constitutional rights. I will be a true leader in DC. I have the skills to do the job, I humbly ask for the opportunity.
