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.

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?

I support abortion under circumstances of medical emergencies and in situations of rape(which comprise an overall percentage of 2% of cases per the heartbeat bill) or involuntary sexual contact. I would also support the expansion of contraceptives to decrease the overall number of abortions.


Economy

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

Neutral   

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 believe in preserving social security benefits through the reduction of governmental expenditures.

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

I believe in a complete and total reduction in federal governmental spending, including the elimination of the IRS and the ATF. I believe in the drastic reduction of foreign aid, and instead emphasize the importance of reducing homelessness and poverty here in America.

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

I don't believe that taxpayers should help pay off student loans through additional taxes. I believe in reallocating other forms of government expenditure, like superfluous foreign aid, for the purpose of alleviating student loans.


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.

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?

The Separation of church and state indicates that religious perception is to be maintained as a separate matter from government.


Healthcare

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

Neutral   

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 promote healthcare coverage that would increase medical transparency and integrity in costs. I would support increasing workers' compensation to guarantee lower costs for healthcare 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?

In order to reduce the threat of Islamic terrorism, it is an imperative to restrict immigration from disproportionately violent countries that are susceptible to higher rates of terrorism.


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.

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 believe that anyone from countries who does not have a disproportionately high risk of terrorism, and who has gone through the necessary legal requisites to become a citizen, has the right to immigrate to the United States.


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.

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 in God, and the concept of karma. I believe that it is crucial to exercise morality in our political decisions, and demonstrate accountability and integrity in our representation of the American people.


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 filed a redress of grievances that is available upon request, that I publicly delivered to the Capitol on November 9th, to address governmental overreach.

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 believe in electing patriots rather than politicians, and moving America forward in non-partisan practicality rather than upholding partisan interests at the expense of the American people. I am not willing to trade our God-given, inalienable rights for a totalitarian assurance of governmental security. I believe in placing America first, and acknowledge that, when elected, my role is to lead rather to control, and understand that to lead is to serve the American people.


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?

I support the exercise of the second amendment and constitutional carry. I do not support governmental overreach and excessive restrictions on the right to bear arms.


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.

Agree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

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?

I would support authoring or sponsoring legislation that guarantees the security of our second amendment rights. I also support the introduction of legislation that limits government intervention in the education system, healthcare, and pharmaceutical industries. I firmly believe in introducing legislation that establishes term limits and the reduction of salaries for congressmen and politicians.

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

No, I do not believe that racism is a significant threat to domestic security. There is not any definitive authority upon the basis of race in American politics.
