Questionnaire

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?

I do not believe abortion is appropriate under any circumstances. However the only instance that I would listen to opposition would be on someone who was raped. Again, I do not believe abortion is appropriate under any circumstances.


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

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The best way to cut back on unemployment is to provide a pro business environment that creates jobs for people that want jobs. For the individuals that do not want jobs then they do not receive any government benefits or entitlement without working whether it’s working for the city or other form of government but they work for their benefits they provide a service to society.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should be limited in every way, shape and form. The government does not create economic development or prosperity it is a private sector that does so. The government with regulations only works to hinder and prohibit prosperity and growth. The government needs or rather their role Should be limited to the absolute minimum. It is time to get a leaner government gets out of the way of the private sector and allows businesses to grow and not keep adding on regulations and restrictions but allow the private sector to grow. Their role should be as minimal as possible.


Religious Liberty

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.

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

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?

Well on a federal level we need to get rid of the affordable care act. Without having the authority to do that the other way is to start truly enforcing and putting in harsher penalties for Medicaid fraud. The answer is not to increase or have Medicaid expansion that answer is to make sure that we don’t have hundreds of thousands of people that aren’t eligible receiving it. The money saved from that Does it cost taxpayers any additional dollars and I can provide health care and more rule areas and for more people. But we have to get serious about fraud and having people eligible that are not eligible.


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 the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.

Strongly Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

The LGBTQ+ political agenda poses a threat to First Amendment freedoms of speech, expression and religious exercise.

Strongly Agree

I support expanding protections in employment and accommodations based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

Disagree

If children are given instruction in sex education in public schools, it should not express a preference for abstinence but should be comprehensive, offering discussions on various types of sexual orientations and behaviors plus all types of contraceptives.

Strongly Disagree

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

When you de-consolidate power, it prevents a single person from having absolute power.
