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.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

RAPE, INCEST, LIFE OF THE MOTHER, Terrible Birth Defect - Mother's Decision


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.

Strongly Agree   

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

THE FREE PROGRAMS, PLANNED PARENT HOOD, GIVING MONEY TO COUNTRIES THAT HATE AMERICA


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   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

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?

Nothing really - we have always had an American Flag in our church. Render to Caesar what is Caesar's, Render to God what is Gods....


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

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

I feel everyone should have to pay into the system for health care - no where in our Constitution does it say everyone is entitled to FREE Healthcare. The healthcare system is abused-it is broken.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   


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   

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   

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

Anyone as long as they come legally and go though the process of becoming an American and supporting the constitution and the Flag. Live under our laws and no other.


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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Neutral

I believe, I have been a church goer all my life. However, I work on my faith everyday.


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?

Very Conservative   

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

I am a very conservative person, I believe one should not be given anything as it becomes modern day slavery and that person is hooked on the system and can't get off. When one is given something without earning it it takes one's soul. Everybody that can work and contribute should. No Free Rides unless there is a true issue.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

My Life Works - owning and building several of my own businesses for 40 years . Starting with nothing and building several business that pay they fair share to live in and enjoy a FREE country.

NO............

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

I'm a straight shooter, I do not lie. I treat all people equally until they prove me wrong. I offer my time to help anyone in need if I can. I will be available to all. I believe in less Government intrusion in our lives. I support the President and I believe we need the strongest military available. I think all service people are the only real heroes. I humbly ask for your vote again. Carden H. Summers Senator 13th District Thank you.....

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

Strongly Agree

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

Very Extreme Harsh penalties if one does mass shooting. Perhaps a 24 hr period to purchase a hand gun - unless one has a valid carry permit. A carry permit should grant instant sale
