Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Disagree   

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 Disagree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe in a woman's right to choose. I do not believe in late term abortions.


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?

By tackling our National Debt. We can save over a Trillion dollars per year by fixing illegal immigration (200 Billion), The Opioid Epidemic (565 Billion), and Healthcare (750 Billion). It is essential that we start to balance our national budget and bring down our national debt.

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

Military spending is too high right now. I do understand that we had to rebuild our military again after 8 years of another Democrat in the white house depleting our military funding.

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

When the National debt is diminished. Interest rates should be very low for all students.


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?

Restricts major influence of the church into government. Gives religious groups freedom of expression without regulations.


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?

By bringing everyone together again, such as: Educators, tech companies, Doctors, Nurses and even super computers and A.I. to come up with better solutions that can promote, be affordable, eliminate redundancies, incentivize innovation, streamline information and better serve all Americans with better healthcare with a backstop so that no one goes bankrupt. We should also manufacture more medications in the U.S. in a way that would lessen the cost of prescriptions.


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?

Have a strong presence in the middle east. Strong, well funded intelligence gathering. Drone surveillance in countries we permission to fly. Satellite surveillance in the others. I also believe that we should secure the land that is used by Islamic terrorist for our own military staging and further surveillance.


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?

Our government comes up with a number every year on how many should immigrate to our country. They should do it legally without becoming a burden on our social services unless they are refugees.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral   


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.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

A firm belief in god and Jesus as our savior with Christian values.


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.

We waste 750 Billion per year on healthcare fraud, mismanagement and waste. It is our duty to find solutions that would reduce this amount to better serve Americans and reduce our National Debt. We spend 200 Billion per year on illegal immigration. Building the wall, sending back illegal immigrants that do not add value to our country and stopping sanctuary cities will save us 200 Billion and stop a lot of major crime. The Opioid Epidemic is costing us about 565 Billion this year. It is in our best interest to stop this epidemic that takes 70,000 lives per year and sends 250,000 children to foster care or to the care of a grand parent. This is what my campaign is about

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 want voters to know how I would vote on policies and legislation. Unlike most of the politicians who choose to be vague. I would sponsor a bill on the Opioid epidemic. I would sponsor a trial program that would quarantine individuals for a year without medications such as Suboxone or Methadone in a very low cost facility that provides sanitary conditions, food and counselling with no frills. I would also sponsor a bill to form a commission on Healthcare reform and how to best save the 750 billion that is lost to waste, fraud and mismanagement.


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?

No restrictions on gun ownership is needed. However making gun owners liable for securing their firearms is necessary without mandating gun locks or smart locks. It is important to keep children and unauthorized persons from accessing a gun owners firearm, and possibly doing harm. I also like Red Flag laws with Due Process as a tool to stop gun violence. Better background checks.


Other Important Issues

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

Strongly 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?

The Opioid Epidemic Healthcare reform balance budget reform

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

First I believe racism is low in our country. However some, including the media fan the flames of racism and promote lawlessness, looting and anarchy. With violent crime up in some democrat run cities and even allowing the take over of parts of cities by lawless looters would suggest politics are being played out to again remove our president from office.
