Questionnaire

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

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Ectopic pregnancy,or if presence of fetus is self destructive and/or clinically detrimental to the mother in a life threatening manner. If a mother to be chooses to travel outside of state borders to kill unborn by means of abortive methods then she is at lawful liberty to travel as it will fall outside of Mississippi's legal jurisdiction.


Economy

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

Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Neutral

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Look for ways to eliminate illegals in American jobs and bring back employers. Lessen regulations that hold employers back from hiring more people. Incentivize jobs over hand outs. Require work for entitlement programs and if people do not truly need entitlement cut it off to save our tax dollars.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Free market and lower taxes/regulations go a long way. Another way to say it is that government should not hinder an economy, nor let it be monopolized. It may help to bring middle class jobs back from overseas as well.


Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or business owners because of their deeply held religious beliefs.

Strongly Agree

Governments should not penalize those who 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

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

Strongly Agree


Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Disagree

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

Changing CON laws to allow competing insurance options to be in the public sphere, stop waste such as abuse of the ER, potentially opening avenues for treatment that don't involve going to expensive alternatives so more people can attain care. Also-stop fraud and waste to be sure of correct allocations of funding to maximize tax payer's dollars. Get the Fed out of it as much as feasibly possible and bring it down to a state level solution base.


National Security

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

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree


Values

Biblical values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Disagree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

Free speech is under attack on public university and college campuses.

Strongly Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree

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

Having been under a corrupt and oppressive foreign tyrant the Founders choose the system as originally meant and interpreted to keep any one individual or small group of individuals from abusing the citizens as a whole and to be sure a Constituitional Republic was upheld regarding unalienable rights of the people. I also recognize the preamble to the organic Constituition as stating "for" the United States rather than "of".

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Protestant Christian. I believe we can coexist with very small numbers of assimilated different faiths as long as the total of those faiths does not outnumber a predominately Christian jurisdiction. That is probably how the Founding Fathers intended the composition of the citizenry. I ponder the Word in the Bible constantly.


Qualifications

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.

Social media is about the extent of it. Conservatism & free speech is under such attack in the modern era that as a private sector worker and not independently wealthy I can not be wise to speak too freely until I have a means of income outside being a private sector employee as that would allow more rhetoric that would not result in a reprimand from an employer.

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

If I were a hands on tradesman I'd be a mechanic. A degree in Cardiovascular technology as well as other clinical education and 15 years in healthcare as well as fitness brings a lot to the table. As an avid reader of history and reader in general I have learned quite a lot. My upbringing and current life involve agriculture on a regular basis as well. I know a little about a lot and am very analytical which can be valuable as Lt. Governor. Most of all my income and lifestyle is that of a regular Mississippian not the elite of the state so I can better mold legislation for the common man. I tend to be blunt and real in speaking upon matters as well as have a knack for finding whatever is broken or wrong about a given scenario. Debating in depth is also a valuable tool to get down deep in an issue for resolution.

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

My campaign is small enough I do not have this ability yet aside from Facebook and Twitter.

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

I believe I could do a great service to the state. I do not want to be a lame politician, but if elected intend on being a true statesman. I value freedom as the Founders intended along with Christian values in which they presumed society to based on for the effective self willed government of a Constituitional Republic made of Free citizens. I believe in message over money and used correctly those traits could keep what's Right in Mississippi and fix what's wrong. Hire me, and I'll do my best. In parting... Ideas morph, principles do not; therefore some answers in this survey may be revisited and refined, as I gain wisdom and knowledge on my journey and improve to better answers.


Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Neutral


2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Other Important Issues
