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 Disagree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

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 Disagree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Under what circumstances should I interfere with someone elses family planning decisions?


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   

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

Ah, yes. Whose ox gets slaughtered. I'd like to stop the novelty dam with a hole in it, above Pe Ell, because I expect it to break. I'd like to stop the Skoocumchuck wind farm, because not enough wind and avian migration route.


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 Disagree   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

No   

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

And harm none, do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. Conversly, do not suppose your sincerely held religious beliefs are due the respect of the law. For example, attending church during a pandemic is not a right. It's a crime.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Agree   

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

I would advocate for FUNDING. It's the tool we use to make things happen.


National Security

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

Agree   


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 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 Disagree   

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

The question is, who should NOT be allowed to immigrate. That, specifically, is ; those who deny American values and refuse to assimilate. By, to cite the most obvious example, claiming a religion based exemption to the law.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Agree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Strongly Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Show others the respect you hope to see yourself. Don't be terribly suprised to be disappointed.


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?

Liberal   

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

I haven't the slightest idea what you are asking for, here.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I'm NOT qualified. Nor am I playing to win. I am using this process to attempt yet again to straighten out transit in Lewis County. So I can leave. Consider the unsubtle fact of being trapped here, in White Wonderland, by a bunch of redneck jerks who have intentionally fouled up Transit to keep the Darky down. I came to Centralia to use the bus, because a vision problem interferes with driving. Soon as I arrived, Transit went away, without going anywhere. Transit is still here. You can see it all over town, going every direction. Five different routes. But try to ride it anywhere, and IF you manage to do it, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE? Now, try to ride it back... surprising hard to do, isn't it? By coincidence, both Twin Transit and The Packwood bus roll the miles it takes to do the job right, every day. Aside from bus turnouts on Market Blvd, crosswalks at Coal Creek and at Salisbury, and a culvert in the ditch at Salisbuy so we can fill it and put a stop on top, no additional money.

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 or been penalized for sexual misconduct.

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

You have been under lockdown 2 months as I write this. I have been under house arrest 8 years. With real Transit, I would have 20,000 square miles to find an apartment in. As is, I have 2 square miles, and can't even ride the bus to the store. The Americans with Disability Act requires a public entity to provide service in the most integrated manner possible and reasonably change to accomplish that goal. This statutory right belongs to all disabled people, and by extension, to everyone else as well. Establishing the right to enjoy ones rights, rather than fight with City Hall over them, is all I am really trying to do. Thanks very much.


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

No   

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

I am NOT in favor of an 'assault weapons' ban. Canada just banned 3,000 different weapons, all 'assault weapons'. This means the words 'assault weapons' can mean anything. And Colt M-16 derivitives, the most popular weapons in the country, and the precise weapons a well regulated militia would be expected to keep & bear, is the 'assault weapons' bandonistas' poster boy. I also disapprove idiots showing thier weapons to the Governor, and the Legislature. What happens after the first shot?


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Agree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Agree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Neutral   

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

I want a liquid thorium nuclear reactor FACTORY built behind the Trans Alta powerplant. The first 6 units to be installed at Kopiah, in the back of the strip mine, under the powerline Seattle/Portland. Google maps : 46.7, -122.77 Building a factory is expensive. But once built, it doesn't move. I want it built here because I want the money to come here, forever. I don't want it built in China, because we are likely to go to war with them. It's obvious they are preparing. Cold War Two requires economic independence from the Communists. Our Navy will need a lot of reactors. So will the asteroid tugs. And, everyone. Fully up and going, I suppose we will ship one reactor a day. I also want the Army & Marines to drill with mobile anti-ship missiles between Astoria and Aberdeen. Those are the best landing beaches on the West Coast. There are certian battery parks that should be used for this. Other locations should be pre-selected and mapped. There should be a plan in place. Is there?

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

Racism leads to things like Lewis Countys incredibly useless public Transit. And protected rednecks gunning down Black joggers. And 'terrified' cops who just won't stop beating Rodney King. And the Dread Scott Decision. And Columbus saying, "These people will make excellent servants." upon meeting the Tiano.
