Questionnaire

Right to Life

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

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Save the life of the mother


Economy

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

Disagree   

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

There must be a basis upon which money is governed if Congress is to oversee it's constitutional responsibilities. A classical gold standard has been proven over centuries to be the most reliable means of establishing a stable means of monetary trade that allows the wealth of the nation to be shared by all of its citizens. I don't care if it's healthcare, social security, road building, or public education, as long as our nation is ruled by a fiat monetary policy it will be manipulated. It is against human nature to avoid greed and corruption as long as the means to facilitate greed and corruption exist. We can pass all the laws with good intent we want, but until we place America under a stable monetary policy the greed and corruption will continue unabated. It's this simple. Politics is a facade for a corrupt monetary policy. It diverts the attention of the people from the real problem that plagues America and drives us increasingly apart. America is in great danger.

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

If the American people restored the power to make all our laws to the Congress as I have laid forth, with many administrative powers restored to the states where they belong, America would see its healthcare costs plummet along with the need for deficit spending. It would change our foreign policy of "Endless War" and replace it with the Peace of Freedom. What I propose is a government based in Liberty, and as President Washington said, "Liberty, once taken root, is a plant of rapid growth."

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

They shouldn't. By the same token, students should be able to declare bankruptcy. I believe it is unconstitutional to deny a segment of American's the right to declare bankruptcy. It is a question of due process. Has our corrupt government placed the American people on the hook for student loans that have been the primary cause of spiraling education costs? YES! Get ready America, we have the same problem with private and public pensions. We must deal with it all at the same time. I will.


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   

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

Neutral   

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

Yes   

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

The church, any church, does not hold a legal position of power in the government, and the government, does not have any authority of any church. I believe this is just as the Framers of our Constitution intended it. They did not want to see a Church of England, or the Pope, or a Imam in a position of power in any constitutional office. This does not include a minister in our Congress. Understand the Congress is The People's place in our government. It is our voice. It is therefore where all laws must be introduced, debated, compromised and voted upon all within the public forum.


Healthcare

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

No Answer   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Neutral   

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

America spends $4 trillion on health care in America today, nearly 20% of our nations GDP. The rest of the 1st world spends about 8%. It is clear that half of $4 trillion is stolen by big health care, big insurance and big pharma by their lobbyist control over these federal agencies who write, adjudicate and enforce the administrative laws that are bought and paid for by the billionaires and multi-national corporations who pay for those lobbyists. Nothing is going to change until that bond is broken. 1. All PUBLIC agencies, (i.e. US EPA, HHS, Dept of Education etc must be returned to the states that have mirror agencies in every state and every county. Congress can pass laws and fund their applications, but the states must carry it out. 2. All INDEPENDENT agencies (i.e. FDA, FCC, SEC, CFTC etc) must come under the review of the Congress. 3) The Federal Reserve Bank powers (Art I, Sec 8, paragraph 8 must be restored to the Congress (see continued in 30)


National Security

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

Disagree   

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

Stop endless war and liberate Saudi Arabia


Immigration

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.

Agree   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

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   

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

Neutral   

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

At this point, America needs to go back to limiting immigrants with skills needed in America. Anyone who comes here illegally must be deported. Those immigrants, legal and illegal who commit a violent crime must be deported if they have gone to trial and convicted AFTER they have served their allotted time incarcerated.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   


Values

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

Agree   

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

Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I'm a born again Christian.


Qualifications

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Somewhat Conservative   

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

Anyone can look at my website to see where I stand on any number of issues, but the driving force of my campaign is to change our system of government back to our Constitution. (i.e. Congress has allowed its powers to make our laws to be usurped to federal agencies. Today these agencies create 90% of our laws, all written with the help of 12,000 registered lobbyists employed by any number of billionaires and multi-national corporations. These laws are written behind closed doors for the top tiers of wealth and against over 90% of the American people. President Washington warned us in his Farewell Address (Sept 17,1796) that America cannot allow a power of Congress to be usurped to any public or private agency, because this power will always end up in the hands of "cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men" and "this is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed." This is what has happened in America today and this is what we must change. (I have hit 1000 words)

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

No.

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

I'm not running for Congress to "Punch My Ticket". I'm running to change things for the better at a time in our world where everything is going to change whether you like it or not. I intend to lead the way back to our Constitution so that all the People can Rule over our Government, and not the government ruling over We The People. That has gone on too long and we all see the result. Corruption. Poverty. Division. It must all end and it will soon. The question for the voter is what do they want to see happen? Do they want to restore power to We the American People, or leave it in the hands of the corrupt politicians who have taken all of us to where we are today. What kind of world do you want to leave your children, your grand children and beyond. If you want someone who will represent you in your Congress, invest your vote with me. If you want your Congressperson to represent their political party, vote for someone else because no one can serve two masters.


Criminal Justice

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

Convicted felons of violence, felons, and those who have been found mentally incapable of owning firearms after the full application of their right to due process, and found wanting. Those who have their 2nd Amendment Rights denied after due process, can, after rehabilitation, can petition the court for the restoration of their rights. The same applies to convicted non-violent felons who may also petition the courts for the restoration of their 2nd Amendment rights.


Other Important Issues

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

Neutral   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

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

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. TERM LIMITS: Must Have, Must be Done. It is why I am condemned and censored by both corrupt democrats and corrupt republicans as they exist in both parties and I can prove it by their actions because "Censorship is the Voice of Corruption." 2. THE FEDERAL RESERVE TRANSPARENCY ACT (HR 24/SB 26) Has passed the House 3x and failed each time in the Senate. 3. REINS ACT: Begins REINing back the powers of federal agencies to write laws restoring this power to write laws back to our Congre

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

Racism is not a threat. It is our governmental system of agency government and its administrative law the threatens the domestic security of our United States of America. See the above. It is these administrative laws the leave many American's impoverished, and this is what drives we American's apart. it is just that the races are divided by the economics of a predatory system of our governments monetary and law making policies. They are inherently corrupt. Change it and we Change EVERYTHING.
