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?

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)


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?

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.


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.

No Answer   

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?

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.


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?

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.


National Security

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

Neutral   

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.


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 have ability to care for themselves, do it legally and provide benefit to the community in which they settle.


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.

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

No Answer   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a devout Christian and baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. I make every attempt to attend church each Sunday with my family. We teach prayers to my children before bedtime, before meals and during times of significant impact (funerals, tragedies, etc)


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.

I am the only candidate in this NV CD4 Republican primary that is a lifetime member of NRA and GoA, a member of the NV Firearms Coalition AND testified to the State Assembly against the new Red Flag Law. I'm a business owner, member of NFIB and three different Chambers of Commerce - I believe in rollback of government regulations and allowing our economy to thrive through individual effort, merit and innovation. I've signed both the Term Limits Pledge and the No New Tax Pledge.

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

No and no.

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

I am a fiscal conservative that believes in personal accountability and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I believe in the America First Agenda.


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?

None. The Second Amendment is Clear - Right to Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed.


Other Important Issues

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

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

Protection of life, National Security (borders/sanctuary), Protection of 2A Rights.

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