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?

Only when the life of mother is at risk.


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?

Promises made should be promises kept. I support ensuring that those who have already paid in for Social Security benefits should be guaranteed their benefits. Any reform should impact younger generations and include more options on where to invest, including Health Savings Accounts. Then hard decisions need to be made on other unnecessary bloated budgetary items to be cut!

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


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?

(Did not answer)


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Get away from the fee for service model and move to a model which measures health outcomes. Health insurance is a commodity. It should be transparent, accessible and will be more affordable if we allow free market competition.


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?

Enforce our laws, enforce our borders, and reform immigration system.


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?

Those who can and will be a benefit to America.


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 Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.


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?

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

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?

1 Balanced budget 2. Term limits and ending congressional benefits 3. Expanded broadband internet access to rural areas that allow for greater access and free market competition, avoiding creating a government monopoly or having the government pick and choose winners and losers by giving one company preference over others when it comes to helping expand broadband access.
