None, with the exception of rape or incest in certain cases.

Making it easier for businesses to hire and support a larger workforce through the removal of government roadblocks and regulations.

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.

Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Allow physicians to treat their patients without interference from price-fixing insurance companies. This is accomplished through removing regulations from the medical professionals, allowing them to have more freedom in deciding their own prices/rates.


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.

Values

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

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

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?

Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. One man or group of men will 9/10 times attempt to take advantage of the institution they find themselves in for their own personal gain if they are not checked by other forces.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Christian, Jesus Christ dies on the cross to save mankind from our sins. Belief is required for eternal life with God after natural life.
