Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

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.

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

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.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Agree

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.

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.

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?

Abortion should never be allowed because it is murder. Doctors should always try to save the baby. Any exceptions or loopholes are liberal talking points to make abortion more prevalent.

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

Build the wall. Strengthen immigration system. Close down insurgent extremist mosques which are hotbeds of treason against our country. Bring God back into our public schools. Strengthen the family. Re-cultivate basic respect for authority and our sacred Judeo-Christian institutions upon which this country was based.

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

Our nation’s founding fathers understood man’s basic problem. They openly and purposefully acknowledged the reality of human sinfulness. (Jer. 17:9) “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick.” Our sinful human nature determines our views on the original limits the founders put into place in our governing documents determining whether the federal government is our master – or whether it serves us.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian and believe Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us from our sins. This informs my beliefs and actions in all I do in my daily walk in how we have raised our children, served our country in the military, and run our own business. This will be my Rock upon which I serve in the United States Congress.

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?

Very Conservative

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?

Repeal ObamaCare. Make health insurance market-competitive across state lines. Health insurance is a privilege to be earned, not a right.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should be involved As little as possible. I am a Free Market capitalist. I own my own business and meet payroll every two weeks. Government needs to get out of my way, so I can create more jobs.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Simplify the tax code. As a small business owner, I should not have to pay thousands of dollars every year to an accountant to fill out tax forms and then live in terror from the government that one little error could bring down my family.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Get government out of my way.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Congress must ensure that Social Security funds are safeguarded for the proper use by those of us who paid into it, and not be used for other purposes. Give options to younger generations to opt out.

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

As a 20-year operational Air force pilot (one of the Air Force's first women pilots), I have served my country nationwide. My perspective is unique and appreciative. I know the difference between deploying under a weak feckless commander-in-chief versus serving under a strong resolute commander-in-chief. I've lived "Peace through Strength" and know its efficacy. Since the military, I have had to make payroll as a business owner for 21 years. Small business is the backbone of this country. I live it every day. Finally, we have raised two children and have four grandchildren. I home-schooled them through half of their educational years. I am a State of AZ teacher. I understand youth and the challenges they face in today's world. My background is what the Founders envisioned in sending a principled military veteran to serve her country again in Congress and then come back home.

This includes fighting to: 1. Build the wall 2. End sanctuary cities 3. Cut spending 4. Defund Planned Parenthood 5. Take care of our military veterans 6. Protect our 2nd Amendment
