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?

To save the mother


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   

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

Money going to other countries, and to unelected agencies that wage war against freedoms.

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 Agree   

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 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 that two are separate. The state cannot rule over or create laws that restrict religion, and vise versa.


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

Strongly Disagree   

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

Let the free market decide, let their be competition.

National Security

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



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.


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

Anyone legally. I am not highly knowledgeable about the current process, but it probably needs to be revamped so that more people can immigrate, other than certain privileged classed. I have heard it's harder for people from certain countries to immigrate and that's not fair, anyone who can help make America a better place should be given the opportunity. Though, criminals who are violent or sexual offenders should not be allowed to come here.


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.

Strongly Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am not deeply religious but do acknowledge are right come from a supreme ruler and that we are born with certain unalienable rights. I do support the practice of religious freely, as long as other peoples rights are not being violated as a result.


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?


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

I am against a communist lead government. I am for a free market capitalist system, I am for legal immigration, not illegal entry. I am a strong supporter of the constitution. My values are more libertarian based.

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

I have a vast level of experience in law, constitutional law, rights and principals. I feel I tend to use more common sense than most in office. I will let the constitution and wisdom of our fore fathers guide me and also will look to history to make sure we're not going to repeat any foreseeable mistakes.

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

I do have Felonies on my record that are THEFT related from when I was very young. Mainly from living on the streets, in and out of foster care and group homes. I was kicked around a lot since age 10, where I basically learned to fend for myself. I have been out of trouble now for quite sometime. I am a small business owner. I am making every effort to rebuilding my life and help others rebuild or start theirs. I care passionately about helping people, and animals. I strive very hard to do so.

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

I will work hard to make sure our liberties are never suspended again. I will fight hard to help rebuild our economy. I believe all jobs and people are essential and I am against forced vaccinations, micro chipping the public, and against a one world order and dictatorship.

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?


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

I think the 2nd Amendment is quite clear that the Right to keep and bear arms SHALL not be infringed. Under section 24 of the WA STATE CONSTITUTION the right to keep and bear arms in protection of self or state, SHALL not be impaired. I live by that standard. You cannot punish someone for a crime they haven't committed and all have the right to self defense. Therefore, if your not currently on parole, or under any violent charges. the RIGHT should stand 100%

Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Agree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.


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


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

No, not really. Racism is usually a tool used by the media and elites to play sides off against each other. In today's age, most people have lived and learned to tolerate one another. there are always groups or certain people who have hateful intentions and in that case, when they attempt to hurt others, then at that point they become a threat to certain peoples security and should be held liable for such.
