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


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?

I would abolish all tax-payer funded programs that participate in abortions. I would de-fund all cities or organizations that receive tax-payer funds that do not uphold the immigration laws of the United States.


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?

I do not believe there should be an establishment of a "state church". The state has no right or authority to elevate itself above the Word of God or to govern or invent a "new morality"outside the bonds of God's Word. I do not believe that secular government has any place in the church,however , I do believe there is no such thing as separation of God and government.


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?

(Did not answer)


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?

Within reason, every person who desires to immigrate into the U.S. must be properly vetted and pass a strict background check. They must desire to want to assimilate and embrace our Nation and uphold its laws and Judaeo-Christian heritage and values.


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 the Holy Bible is the absolute and final authority that all men should live by.


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.

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

The study of the Word of God and the United States Constitution.

No

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

I do not believe that any one political party or any one political figure is the answer to the sin and the chaos of our Nation. As a Nation, we the people,in order to restore our Republic, must humble ourselves before the Lord Jesus Christ, repent of our sins, and seek His face and favor in a true spirit of humility.


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 Agree

There is already more than enough restrictions on gun ownership in the United States.

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?

One of the first priorities would be to introduce or co-sponsor legislation to abolish abortion and or bring an Amendment option to the people of Kansas. Introduce legislation that would ban any compliance to any presidential executive order that would be contrary to the US Constitution and the Kansas State Bill of Rights. Introduce legislation again that protects the privacy of restrooms, locker rooms and overnight accommodations for all tax funded government schools.(Biological girls with biological girls, and biological boys with biological boys)

No, the sinful heart of all mankind is a threat to the domestic security of the United States.
