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?

This is 2020 in the most advanced healthcare system on the planet....abortions are not needed and should not be allowed. Adoption, is an excellent option for mothers/families that give their child life, but cannot keep the baby.


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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Rebuild the economy, balance the budget (no more "continuing resolutions") and start paying down the national debt.

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

Salaries for Congress National Endowment of the Arts National Public TV and Radio The Ad Council Research grants to universities for worthless studies Foreign Aid to anti-American countries or groups State Department excesses for world travel expenses Subsidies for any commodity- let the free market decide Combine competing or redundant agencies like national labs CDC, FDA & NIH, BLM & National Forests, National Weather Service, etc Downsize Department of Education with "block grants" to state

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

None


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?

Nothing....It's not part of the Constitution.


Healthcare

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

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?

A strong economy provides choices of doctors, hospitals and insurance plans. Rebuild and maintain our economic might and employers will compete for labor with outstanding healthcare options as a part of compensation and benefits.


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?

Maintain a strong military, but get our troops out of foreign (Islamic)countries around the world.


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?

H1B- okay at 3% unemployment, but not 15%. Must want to assimilate and become a citizen through a legal process. Jobs go to Americans first. H2B- Increase allotments at 3% unemployment, but not 15%. Workers are seasonal and return home by law. Immigrants must come legally, assimilate to the American culture and become citizens.


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

Strongly Disagree

Christian
