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.

Neutral

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.

Disagree

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 Disagree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Neutral

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.

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.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2012 General Election, 2014 General Election, 2016 General Election

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Death of the Mother and the chid is inevitable and the mother can be saved

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

We need to stop waging war in countries we shouldn't be in. We went into Iraq because of a lie. When we go into these countries and kill civilians we create an enemy and the way that enemy fights is terrorism. Bring our troops home, make sure radicals don't enter the U.S.

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

Confusing question, our founding fathers were brilliant men who thought. The result of this thought was our Constitution. Not sure what you mean by nature of mankind, please clarify in an email so I may expand on my answer

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Infinite intelligence/higher power exists. I have total and absolute faith in this fact. I also believe in Karma or Universal justice. We reap what we sow.

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?

Moderate

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

I don't understand this question. Please go to my website VoteAgainstTheMachineS.com to see what my plan is. Please email an example of publicly available info that would define or show this.

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

I would promote it by letting Americans know it was available. I would create it by making a single payer system in which administrative costs would be significantly reduced, getting insurance companies out of the doctor patient relationship, allow medications to be purchased at the absolute lowest price even if it means crossing borders, allow medicare to negotiate lower drug prices, reward people with healthy lifestyles. Limit the huge profits in the medical industry like hospital costs. An aspirin shouldn't cost 5 dollars. Right now with the opiod/opiate epidemic, which is caused by big pharma, those companies that are responsible should be forced to pay for recovery treatment and refund our tax dollars for money already spent. We are a great nation and it seems to me we are smart enough to figure this out just like most other countries.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Tariffs on goods coming into the U.S. where there is unfair trade practice or intellectual property discrepancies is a good start. An infrastructure rebuild program needs to be started where people will be trained to hold the jobs necessary to fix our infrastructure. These high paying jobs would increase consumer spending as well as raise the tax base in this country.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Flat tax with a sliding scale. If you make more money you pay a little more. This country gives you the opportunity make more money so you should give back.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Encourage companies to reinvest in work programs and training, not take the tax breaks and pay the rich executives. Well trained work force is a busy and content workforce and people will want to work.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

No more "borrowing" from social security for other government costs. This money should be put aside and well managed not used for other purposes.

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

As an engineer I solve problems, working in the space program has taught me how to work with government agencies and navigate the red tape. Owning a business has taught me management skills and how to motivate others. As an outsider I will bring fresh ideas and not sell out to big money like a politician. I am not a politician, I am politicking for a civil service job.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:

DforSenate@gmail.com

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

I am asking Delaware for one six year senate term in which I will make sure we have campaign finance reform and term limits. Right now we all know the legislative branch is a mess, the two party system isn't working and is going to destroy our nation. The only way to fix it is to put in a third party.
