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.

Neutral   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Neutral   

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.

Neutral   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Never for convenience.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

Neutral   

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?

Take the self-imposed limit off of the legislation that established SS. Call SS what it is, socialism, and treat it like that.

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

My economic policy is very liberal: Modern Monetary Theory; which doesn't require balanced budgets, only that production equals consumption. However, I do promote a strong work ethic; everybody do what they can.

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

Those unbankruptable loans shouldn't have been given in the first place, and should be discontinued. For the people who got roped into them, it's going going to be a long way out.


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.

Neutral   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Neutral   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

No Answer   

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

The church does not control the state.


Healthcare

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

Agree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Listed prices. Liability Award caps. Less expensive Medical School. More Residencies. Drug companies should not advertise. Promote generic drugs. Let Medicare negotiate prices. Use Markets, not insurance. Medical care goes back to Non-profit, and cap management's salaries.


National Security

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

Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Free Speech.


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.

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?

People who don't require the social safety net to survive. There should always be immigration; let The People determine how much, and hold the line at that number, no loopholes.


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.

Neutral   

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.

Liberty over all.
