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 believe abortion should be prevented in all but the most circumstances in which the life of the mother is at risk. In this case I believe the physician has to make emergency decisions, while keeping in mind they have a moral obligation to do everything they can to save the life of the child while doing so.


Economy

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

No Answer

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 bring the unemployment down is by freeing capital up to be used by everyday people, and businesses. Lowering taxes on the middle class, and businesses leads to more spending in the economy, and more jobs being created by businesses as a result to serve that increased spending.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Government should lower taxes, and remove unnecessary regulations that restrain the growth of the private market.


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.

Strongly 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.

No Answer

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.

No Answer

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

I would like to see health insurance companies be able to compete across state lines so that there is more pressure on private companies to offer more affordable plans.


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.

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.

No Answer

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

No Answer

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.

No Answer

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

Mankind is corrupted be power, and tends to become protective, and greedy over positions of power. The founds of the United States wisely limited the roles, and thus power, of each branch of government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

A lifelong Christian,I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Messiah promised in the Old Testament, who came in the New Testament, and will come again.
