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.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

If the life of the mother is at risk. In case of rape or incest. In case of a child being pregnant.


Economy

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

Agree   

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?

What I would do with Social Security benefits is drop the retirement age back to 62 and then make sure our government quits barrowing funds from Social Security and work on a play to pay back what they barrowed.

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

I would defund Planned Parrenthood and put that money into expanded Medicare. I would add more Drug Courts to decrease recidivism and focus more on rehab and community service rather than incarcerations for victimless crimes. We did a spike in infrastructure spending in 2016, so I would cut 30% off that expenditure. I would also set a limit on foreign aid.

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

Under the Bush administration, he had started policies to make sure that our banking system will never go broke so the tax payers have been over taxed and pitch in funds, and increased foreclosures and many different avenues to funnel money back into the Federal Reserve. Now is the time that the Federal Reserve pays back those over expenditures we have endured by forgiving student loan debts.


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.

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?

The separation of church and state limits things like teaching religion in schools or a coercion of religion forced in public schools.


Healthcare

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

Agree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Disagree   

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

I would work on combining several healthcare programs under one roof and then expand coverage.


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?

Promote and support democracy. Help develop and a democracy based union of states in the middle east to help promote communications between states, to promote peace, and to promote economic development.


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.

Neutral   

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.

Neutral   

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

I believe there are some changes that need improved in our immigration laws. I would like to see DACA bill passed to allow them citizenship or at least the pathway to citizenship. I would also like to see that when someone is approved that they would immediately get at the least a work visa. Many people after they allowed into the states might wait a year or two before having a court date for citizenship. These people want to work and don't want to be a burden to society. So we need to allow them to work.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Agree   


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.

Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe and support in the freedom of religion.


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?

Moderate   

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

I believe we need to continue to support and abide by National Law and work with the UN and NATO to help promote globalization. Globalization naturally occurs and it is something that can't be stopped. But developing it in a way to help bring more unity in our goals would be something that I would want to accomplish.

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 would like to end inheritance taxes. That is a large burden on families trying to pass their property onto their kids. With the bills that I have written could reduce the foreclosure rates by as much as 70%, while at the same time increase contractor jobs in the housing markets. I would push to decrease penalties for victimless crimes and push more for Drug Courts and Juvenile courts to help with a rehab style of settings rather than incarcerations. I do support the sanctuary of counties that are fighting against the redflag laws, as the RedFlag laws is a violations of both the 2nd and 14th Amendments I am conducting a raffle on my website and accepting donations on my website located at www.LarryBolinger.com


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?

Utilize the restricts we have today. Continue with the back ground checks that we currently do.


Other Important Issues

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

Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Disagree   

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

I have a lot of knowledge and experience in property preservation and management. The knowledge I have would benefit in our housing market and banking reform. The third area that I belief I would do well due to the education I received at UNO in political science and criminology is on international relations. In Political Science, I have studied policies and international relations and I've also spent a couple years over seas when I was in the military.

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

Racism is always a threat, which is why we always have to fight for equality in every way.
