Questionnaire

Right to Life

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

That decision is between a doctor and the pregnant woman.


Economy

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

Neutral

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.

Agree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

More jobs. More training. But we also need to understand why people are unemployed. Some people are in situations where they cannot work, but want to. Some people are less employable than others and would need training and suitable jobs, Companies also struggle with finding qualified workers. There is a mismatch in the skill sour education system builds and the skills our economy needs. Realistically, promoting job training programs over traditional 4 year colleges could go a long way.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Keeping taxes and regulations to a minimum is important. The US Government also plays a large role in a number of financing opportunities for homeowners, college students, municipalities, etc. I believe the government needs to stabilize the economy, but boosting the economy and setting off roaring growth as we all like to see is predominantly provided by innovating companies and emerging industries.


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 Disagree

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

Disagree


Healthcare

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

Neutral

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

I support medicaid expansion. People should be able to get the care they need. To promote it, it can be promoted in the normal ways other programs are promoted - advertisements, websites, etc.


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 Disagree

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

Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

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.

Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral


Values

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

Strongly Disagree

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

No Answer

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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 Agree

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

Greed, sloth, envy, pride. Every person in power needs a check and balance.
