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?

There are no circumstances where abortion should be allowed. Life begins at conception and the child begins to grow immediately. Any attempt to destroy the normal course of a pregnancy should be considered an attempt to murder a human being, and should be dealt with as such. Thousands of people are waiting to adopt a child. There can never ever be any reason to have an abortion.


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?

The system is broken and has to be fixed. Retirement ages must be adjusted. People must be allowed to opt out into a private system.

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


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


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.


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.


What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

It means the state cannot force us to worship a religion of their choice. The democrats would have you believe that we cannot mention the word "GOD" outside of our places of worship. It means protecting the church from the state. That is why the pilgrims came here to establish their own religion.


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?

Expand free markets and eliminate barriers that stop health care providers from competing across state lines. Eliminate frivolous lawsuits by making the loser pay the the court costs.

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?

Maintain a strong military. Attack terrorist organizations wherever they are, and cut aid to nations that provide sanctuary to them. Stop immigration from these countries. Increase surveillance of suspects.


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?

Only those people who are able to establish their identity through official records and can also prove they have no criminal records or underlying serious health problems should be allowed to enter. They must prove they have resources to sustain themselves for at least one year. also they must prove they have been a resident of this country for at least two years before they can qualify for government programs such as welfare, food stamps, and healthcare. No drivers licenses would be issued without passing the prescribed tests.


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


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.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a roman catholic lector, altar server, and eucharistic minister. I believe that God sent his only son to atone for our sins. I dedicate every day of my life to my lord Jesus to seek his will. hear his word, and to do his work.


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?

Very Conservative   

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

since I am not a politician, or public person, there is no public proof of my personal convictions.

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


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

(Did not answer)

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?

Most states already have laws in place restricting ownership to qualified people. The problem is that the law for criminals committing crimes with a firearm is often not enforced by our liberal judges. There should be a mandatory sentence for crimes committed with a firearm.

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.

Strongly Disagree   

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?

Law enforcement. Healthcare. Protect our rights guaranteed to us by the constitution.

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

I don't believe racism is a threat to America. The democrats keep playing the racist card to fuel unrest in America. The racism movement has been embraced by every radical group to change what they don't approve of in America.
