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?

None. but I would accept the rape and incest exception.


Economy

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

Strongly 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.

Strongly Agree

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Energize business with tax cuts for investments. Providing a tax friendly environment will give industries a reason to provide jobs to your people. We need to cut spending in government to provide even more tax relief.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Lower taxes, curb controls and open markets, then get out of the way. Government should not play favorites and choose winners in the business arena.


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.

Strongly Disagree

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

The first thing would to ask Congress to allow insurance to be sold across state lines. Competition is one of the biggest factors in reducing costs. Allow tax breaks for policies to the poor. I would, also, have hospitals to post prices so competition on procedures would be seen.


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.

Strongly 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?

It is the nature of mankind to want power. In order to keep this nation from becoming a dictatorship, power must be controlled by the people. I think our forefathers did a wonderful job of of using Biblical principles to lay the foundation for our democratic republic.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe the Trinity and that our God made all in the heavens and the earth. I believe man fell to sin in the Garden of Eden and it became a part of mankind for as long it is until His return. I believe that Jesus Christ was God's Son and He gave Himself as a perfect sacrifice for the all sin. Those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior will be forgiven of their sins and taken to Heaven for eternity. The Holy Spirit is here to comfort and lead Christians until Christ's return. Jesus is my Lord and Savior.
