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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

It is a personal woman's choice between her, her family and her doctor.

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

all in the name of freedoms I expect. Of course with freedom comes responsibility. It s nearly impossible to legislate responsibility and so easy to offer freedoms. The separation of powers appears to work relatively well, but we are currently seeing a lot of bending of the intended rules.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an atheist. I have no spiritual beliefs. My values come from normal human empathy and caring for others.

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?

Somewhat Liberal

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

I believe in freedoms as much as anyone, but that freedom does not guarantee success at any level. Opportunity varies and while the USA is the greatest country for freedoms and the expression of them, it is failing miserably on many fronts. Education, healthcare primarily. If you want to see a successful country and a strong middle class, then the basic needs to food, healthcare, and education are paramount to the success of the nation. The USA fils miserably in these areas.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Unemployment is down. The government does not have a lot of control over it nor should the government be making claims about how they 'fixed it'.

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

Medicare for all is the simplest method to do it. we already have the system in place. Private healthcare is an abysmal failure for most Americans and we are spending double what the rest of the world spends for less coverage. If private healthcare worked, the rest of the world would be doing it. Adjust the tax base, allow a private system to exist along side of the Medicare system for those that want to spend the money and fund healthcare for everyone.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Good economic policy, strong infrastructure and a tax base that actually pays for the things we spend. i.e. fiscal responsibility

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

I am a smart guy. Ran a business and turned it into an international success story for 23 years. brought tens of millions every year ot the local economy. Experience in identifying the root causes of problems and being able to stay honest above all. Do not make promises that you cannot keep. I also have no party affiliation so i am not bound to the doctrine of a particular party line. I am interested in working for the people and the rights and freedoms that we enjoy.

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

I am the choice for honest government. Florida House and Senate is filled with graft and corruption where politicians pass legislation to make themselves rich. We need education and better healthcare in Florida. The environment is a disaster thanks to a decade fo failed policy. I want to fix that. It costs money. Let's start with a honest discussion about what is really going on and I will be that person. You might not like the reality, but I will be up front about it... not a smile and then do whatever I feel like doing. I support the anti-corruption act and the pro truth pledge, which will radically change the way money affects political decisions and get us back to representation on a real level.
