Right to Life

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

Neutral   

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?

I feel that abortion should be allowed in cases of rape, incest, and endangerment of the mothers life. Abortion should not be used as a type of birth control. Once life can be established on its own, abortion should not be allowed.


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?

Guaranteeing Social Security benefits for future generations is not a money problem, it is a corruption issue. I would try to stop the corruption.

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

I would look into all government programs and reduce the spending by eliminating all wasteful spending.

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

I feel the only time taxpayers should help pay off existing student loans is if the student has a catastrophic event that hinders their way to pay off the loan.


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.

Agree   

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?

Government should be impartial to all religions unless they are practicing radical beliefs.


Healthcare

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

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?

Health care costs should be transparent. The cost of the procedures, facilities and medications should be clear and easily understood. Birth control should be easily accessible and affordable. Testing should be done when required but not duplicated. Previous tests should be accessible to all specialists without having to be repeated. Consolidation of hospitals and medical practices reduces competition and should be regulated or eliminated.


National Security

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

Agree   

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

Take the advice of the intelligence advisors and the military advisors. This is the front line of defense.


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.

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.

Agree   

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

I feel anyone should be able to immigrate to the United States as long they understand the laws and conform to them. Everyone should enter the country legally.


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.

Neutral   

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

Neutral   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My spiritual beliefs are that of a Christian. I believe that everyone should be treated equally.

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?

There should be no restrictions placed on legal gun owners. The laws should be enforced and the penalties should be stricter for people committing crimes with guns.
