Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
Rape and/or Incest prior to 20 weeks gestation, save the life of the mother. (Pain Capable Child Protection Act - I will sponsor immediately upon election)

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
To begin, I would stop spending current Social Security Monies collected on other than Social Security benefits. Further, any SS funds invested and earnings gained should be reinvested for social security only, not pilfered for other "special projects". We would also do a top to bottom benefits analysis to make sure the benefits are proper for current generational needs. We would also begin a significant push for younger generations to begin saving/investing much earlier to assure increased personal accountability nationwide.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
Foreign Aid to begin. Federal Government reduction in size (antiquated agencies). A formal review of all government agencies' spending is long overdue.
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
Taxpayers should be accountable to pay off their own student loans. In cases where government promises were made at time of loan, those promises should be honored (Public Service Loan Forgiveness, eg). I would recommend interest rates for Federally held student loans be lowered to the current fed rate.
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
It means that Government will not mandate individual choice of worship. It does not mean that Judaeo-christian values will be void in our government.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Repeal the ACA immediately and allow company to compete for business under guidelines that prevent discrimination and protection for preexisting conditions. Competition will drive down pricing. I would also advocate for billing transparency and streamlining.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
Enforce immigration standards, remove any federal funding from cities/states that do not prosecute movements toward sharia law. Bring back the House Committee on Internal Security to make sure any Congressional Members have proper clearance to access sensitive US information and subversion to our government doesn't persist.
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.

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.
Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?
Those that have ability to care for themselves, do it legally and provide benefit to the community in which they settle.
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
