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.

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Never. There should be discussion if there is evidence of serious Physical or Mental Retardation or that the child could not live a normal life. Even in these extra ordinary circumstances, abortion is still the taking of a life.


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?

Make sure at every stage of development we move forward knowing that we must protect and promote the general welfare. Not only with Social Security, but with everything necessary to ensure our future happiness and prosperity.

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

I would reduce Foreign Aid. Eliminate automatically Aid to the known enemies of America.

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

We can come up with programs to help students pay off their student loans. It should not be the total responsibility of the taxpayers to pay off a students education loans, Educatio n is priceless.


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?

Fundamental to the architects of our republic was the separation of the church and the state. The state or government shall make no laws with respect to the church and in return the church will attempt to stay out of the matters of the state. It’s been working fine for decades and the respect level is still intact.


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Disagree   

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

Instead of giving away $2,000,000,000,000.00 we can at anytime design a healthcare program that works. We are Americans. Brave full of love and peace and free. Just do it. Be blessed.


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?

Stop associating Islam with terrorism. To do that, disrespects the entire religion. It could eventually cause Islamic people who don’t have a mean bone in their body to maintain a defensive posture. Everyone must be kind to each other. Kindness is the verb of Love. Now if your desire is to keep tension and indifference going, than continue with that mind-set and reasoning. Do what whatever you feel is right. Remember, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you want love, peace and understanding then show love, be peaceful and understanding. I love you too. Be Blessed.


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.

Neutral   

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.

Agree   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

All the paperwork that is needed to declare your citizenship is already in place. Proper vetting is necessary to keep our county and citizens safe. The pathway to legal citizenship has already been established and is working fine. Just follow the format that already have been established.


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.

Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I love the lord and I believe he deserves all the praise and glory and honor. I do not believe in prayer in the schools. If we did pray in school, what prayer are we going to pray. A Hindu prayer? What about a Voodoo prayer? How about let the individual pray to him or herself if it’s their prayer of choice. We must respect everyone and their God. I love the lord and I love to pray. Whenever I think about the lord and what he has done for me, I have to stop and pray. I I am bless in City. I’m blessed in the fields. I’m blessed when we come and when go. We cast down ever stronghold sickness and Covid-19 must flee. For the devil’s been defeated. WE ARE BLESSED. Now let’s praise the lord.


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.

Google Josh Elliott Las Vegas and there are some articles about me and my Hero, Sammy Davis Jr. He went through it all and he maintained a mighty majestic posture. The type of posture necessary to ensue and secure the type of future that all Americans deserve.

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

No I have not been convicted of a felony.

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

I love everyone and I love the Lord.


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?

If a person is crazy, they should be allowed to own a gun.


Other Important Issues

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

Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Disagree   

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

Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Neutral   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

With the advent of Corona viruses, we must make sure other pathogens are identified, analyzed and solved prior to becoming a problem. We must be pro-active instead of reactive. We must anticipate what’s next and already have worked out the solution or antidote. I would support or sponsor a bill to make our Center For Disease And Control (CDC), second to none in the World with monitors all over in particular areas that have compliance problems.. 2. Constitute an effective plan to remedy homelessness. No one should be allowed to live on the streets of America. This bill will also provide a solution to the hunger issue. 3. We need to be more compassionate at the Border. We need to assist Mexico with its problems. They are on our borders. We want them to want to live in their own country. I want to help Mexico with affordable housing, plumbing, and agriculture in their country. These are our Brown Brothers. Be blessed.

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

No, racism is not a threat to the domestic security of the United States because there is a lot of love here. We have come a long way as a nation. We are an example to the World on the many ways to show love. Be Blessed.
