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.

Strongly 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?

NONE. Every single case, including instances where the life of the mother is in danger should be treated as life saving operations to save BOTH lives to every extent possible.


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   

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

All of it. Especially entitlement spending.


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   

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.

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?

it means that the state does not have ANY authority over the free and unlimited expression of faith by its citizens


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

I would repeal all Certificate of Need certificates, open licensing processes to expedite the process, and relax the practice restrictions on RN/LPM/LPN who are required to work under a MD.


National Security

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

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?

Federal immigration policy is set by the President and the US Congress. States should enforce federal law.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly 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.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that my faith in Christ is fundamental to my understanding of the blessing of liberty. I believe that our rights come from God and not from the state and that we have a duty to protect those rights. I also believe that the fundamental problem with modern society is the breakdown of the family unit and erosion of personal responsibility. We have given both moral and relational authority to the government and in order for the blessing of liberty to survive we must build up the family and renew our faith in the one true God.


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.

My voting record speaks for itself.

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

I do not believe a degree in any way qualifies you for public office. However, I have two masters degrees in Aeronautics and International Relations.

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 have the most conservative voting record in the GA House and have not voted for a single tax increase or growth of government.


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

None. I believe in constitutional carry and that the ONLY way to stop an armed aggressor is with an armed defender.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Agree   

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?

Anti-Sanctuary City, Pro-Life, Deregulation.

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

No. Racism like almost any -ism is perpetuated and fed by the attempts to classify and label things by this title. Hate is hate no matter what form it takes and we as a society should not tolerate it in any form.
