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?

As currently described in the law. It sure never be encouraged. The mother should be fully informed regarding her pregnancy.

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate wished to add: "The mother should be educated exactly what happens to the baby during an abortion and certify that she looked at a training film and sign a certification that she has received said training - education."


Economy

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

Neutral   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “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?

I cannot guarantee anything to anyone but I would support a safety net system that provides assistance to those that have participated and I would work to keep those funds separate from any "general funds" account.

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

All of them. I am guided by the following perspective, all must give some and some will give more. If the nation really wants to achieve a balanced budget every Government dept must give up something.

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

I would recommend a dollar for dollar reduction of federal dollars to institutions of higher learning and a 10x formula for any institution where a significant endowment exists (i.e. Harvard). I will, of course, be happy to consider other similar suggestions. this, of course, would come from reductions in other areas of the Federal budget. Additional, a significant reduction in the funding of higher education that is not specific to the hard sciences and math.


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.

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?

A religion shall not have sway over the Government and that the Government shall not have sway over Christians or Jewish.  To keep a religion like Islam from taking over any state, or the nation. Like we see going on in America today.


Healthcare

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

Neutral   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “Disagree”.

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Disagree   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “Strongly Disagree”

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

By collaborating with my constituents in the district, in the House of Representatives and subject matter experts. I would also support an information campaign that emphasizes to everyone that the first and best guardian of their health is themselves - don't take your health for granted.


National Security

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

Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “Strongly Agree”

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Oil and water do not mix, this is the dilemma before us today, and for years to come. We need to face the fact that Islam calls for the destruction of the Christian world. In short, Christianity is voluntary, Islam is mandatory. In the face of these facts, we have one only choice, Islam and its followers must vacate the western industrialized 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?

Those that are in good health, good moral character, not Muslim, and have the intellectual capacity and work ethic to succeed in obtaining an independent life free of government subsidy. Those that reject any form of socialist or communist form of government.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

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.

Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “Disagree”.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian, having studied the Christian faith both from the Catholic and Fundamentalist perspectives. These views are for better or worse tempted by my real-world experience to include the study of history and economics. May I be guided by the Lord in every step I take. Amen.


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?

Conservative   

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

My campaign slogan reflects my perspective- We are better together - My campaign of Mercy.

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 am the Real Republican in this race for Congress, not some rino who barely made in on the ballot using e-signatures.  After that, I will listen to the constituents of the district and do my best to represent their interests, the interest of the people of Massachusetts and the nation in Congress. Thank you.


Criminal Justice

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

A background check, a waiting period and a permit relative to the type of firearm and number of firearms purchased in a given period of time. These precautions are commonly practiced in a number of states already. Clearly some adjustment may be needed when high school aged persons are in a household of a single parent.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Neutral   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “Disagree”.

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

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

Disagree   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate notified iVoterGuide that the intended answer to this survey question should have been “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?

Tax reform for the middle class. Anything that lifts the heavy hand of government. I, we, have a lot of work to do and we should not pretend that any three or 4 areas are decisive in and of themselves. Many of the 30 questions leading up to this one clearly indicate a direction and course of action to be pursued.

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

Yes, as propagated by BLM and other terrorist groups. However, political causes and agendas hiding behind anti-racism slogans are extremely dangerous to the United States and the world. These hidden provocateurs must be pursued and revealed for who and what they are. Agents of Marxist thinking, communist.
