Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Right to Life

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

No Answer   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Neutral   

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?

Roe vs Wade is the law of the land. Elected officials cannot revise it to add exempt circumstances is the legislative reality. I will do everything possible to raise birth rate among US families as it is falling drastically. I will make every law that is possible for American families to have children and raise them safely.


Economy

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?

I do not have an answer for it now. Need in-depth analysis.

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

Foreign aid.

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

Members of the military who spent their money for education, like ROTC who have student loan debts prior to joining the services. Wipe out interest for doctors, nurses, teachers, police, first responders, etc.


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.

Yes   

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

That sounds hollow to me. America is founded on Judeo-Christian principles and it is the just, moral, powerful and prosperous nation in the human history. I will take oath on Bible when I elected to Congress.


Healthcare

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

Neutral   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

I will bring in Medical University and VA hospital to educate doctors, physician assistants and nurses to Frederick area. There are barriers in healthcare delivery and actually it is not a free market. CVS' pharmacy based delivery is a good start.


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?

Leave Middle East and bring troops home.


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.

Strongly Agree   

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

I support merit based immigration with Ph.D and medical doctors and members of the military as a top priority on a scoring system.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral   


Values

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.

No Answer   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am strongly religious.

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?

People with mental illness should not have access to guns that can kill hundreds of people. VA Tech and Sandy Hook shootings happened because of the loopholes.
