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?

Virtually never, the only circumstance should be when the life of the mother is at risk.


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?

We need to ease restrictions on businesses. As a small business owner, I know that unemployment can only be brought down if we unleash our small businesses. High jury trials thresholds, high business taxes, and unnecessary regulations on businesses harm hurt businesses and increase unemployment.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The only role the government should be playing in the economy is economic development. State government should work with businesses and local government to create economic development packages that are beneficial for both the state and the business.


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.

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?

I would work with our Congressional delegation to allow health insurance to be purchased across state lines. The biggest problem with health insurance is there is not enough competition to lower prices. Allowing health insurance to be purchased across state lines would give consumers more options for purchasing healthcare.


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.

Strongly 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?

Our founding fathers left "the old world" because of religious persecution. They saw first-hand the harm in church and state and being forced to believe a certain way. I am a firm believer in the separation of church and state, but not the separation of God and state.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that I was born a sinner and in need of a Savior. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I am redeemed by the Lord and what he did on the cross. I am also baptized in the Holy Spirit.

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

As a small business owner, I know what it takes to run a business. I know how to read a budget, I understand business taxes, and I know how important our families are to our success as a society. I am pro-life, pro-family, and pro-God.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:

brandon@brandontrosclair.com and 225-283-5445

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

If you want an outsider who has experience writing paychecks, creating jobs and running a successful business, please vote for and support my campaign. Having a businessman serve as President is working out pretty well; and, I have a feeling it would work out well for the State Representative position too.


Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Agree


2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

Gambling should be limited to existing forms and should not be de-regulated or expanded.

Strongly Agree
