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   

I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

To Save the Life of the Mother


It is the government’s responsibility to ensure 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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

The best way to guarantee Social Security benefits for our future generations is to simply reduce the spending by the American, as a country we must live within our means. Our national need to issue Treasury Bonds, to borrow money, to keep the country solvent is the main danger to future generations going forward. Borrowing less in the future, and lowering the national debt as a nation will secure Social Security benefits for our future generations.

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

I would start with across the board spending cuts in all non essential governmental agencies, I would instate a hiring freeze within branches of the government that offer either redundancy or insignificant services to our citizens. The financial waste within our government is enormous.

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

Student loans should NOT be paid off by taxpayers, we should have the Colleges paying off Student Loans when the institution does not educate but is there to indoctrinate our young people into some sort of degenerate Marxist, Socialist, Communist, Leftist, Social Justice value system. Additionally, Student Loan providers should not be lending to our young people, where in many cases, the lender already knows, full well, that the amount of money borrowed by the student will never be repaid.

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   

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

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.


What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

To me this means that no American wants a Church run by the state or government, located in some foreign country, dictating or telling we Americans what to do. This nation was built on Biblical Judeo-Christian value, as President John Adams wrote "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people." The fact that degenerate Marxist cult values are taught as social science in our highest educational levels, and all the way down to the K-12 levels, is an abomination to this country, our founding fathers, and the future.


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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Firstly, we must admit that we have a bloated and wasteful bureaucracy managing all of our healthcare concerns. Then there is an insane amount of criminal fraud on going; we are losing amounts of money to medical fraud that could fund the economies of most 3rd world nations. We have to streamline the bureaucracy, cut out the criminals, and then increase and stimulate the need for innovation and competition for healthcare services and management throughout this great nation. The improvement has to be gradual, but consistent and manageable with an achievable goal line in the distance. This will inevitably reduce medical costs and increase the quality of care.

National Security

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

Strongly Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

First, we must realize that if the likes of the terrorist Osama bin Laden can get simply get a cleric to produce a Fatwa against anything, anybody, any nation, resulting in Jihad, then radical Islamic terrorism will exist until the end of time, especially when Islamic sharia law is driving the confrontation. From the Christian perspective, this has been the case since the 7th Century. Knowing this to be the reality we can better prepare and defend against Islamic terrorism by not letting our collective guard down. In addition, we have to have to courage to make sure that the terrorists know, in advance, that any act of terrorism against our innocent men, women, and children will be a no win situation for the terrorist, their cause, and their religion.


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   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

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.

Strongly Agree   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Those people that follow immigration law, and according to the law, are allowed to immigrate, so be it. The current illegal immigration fiasco is multifaceted, and by design has the intent to destroy this country, eventually leading to Civil War and Revolution.


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I myself was Baptised as a child Catholic, born again and Baptised Christian. I attend church services and hold bible studies at home with my wife and children. I also have a great appreciation for works and broadcasts from Dr. J. Vernon McGee

Very Conservative

Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   

2nd Amendment

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

I do not want restrictions on gun ownership, I want to engage in the hard work of building better families, better family units, so that gun violence begins to statistically drop in our nation. Restricting gun ownership is simply a band-aid solution to a moral dilemma ongoing in our great nation. The CRIMINALS will always get guns!!

Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1) We need to get the Leftist, Marxists, Socialists, Communists ideology out of the entire school systems. This Socialist Cult of degenerate values parades in the University system and now, like cancer, is into the High School and K-12 educational system in California. This will lead to Civil War and Revolution if we don't act now to stop it. Please read my Candidate's Statement on this matter at: ElectJohnThomas.Com 2) Create High Paying Jobs 3) Protect our 1st and 2nd Amendments

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

The greatest threat to our domestic security is what I have identified as Progressive Racism, Marxist Racism, and this is outlined very well on the website at: ElectJohnThomas.Com As a nation we must follow the Biblical Golden Rule, and the words of Martin Luther King when he said judge not by the color of a person's skin, but by the content of their character.
