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.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  I’m pro-life, and I’m never, ever going to change that position. As a Christian and a believer in scientific evidence, I’m convinced that abortion is the most atrocious practice humans have ever thought up.  Source

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  We need to fully Defund Planned Parenthood and restore a culture of life in Wyoming.  Source

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.

(Did not answer)

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

(Did not answer)


Economy

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  I believe in limited government.  Source

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  I believe in limited government ... letting business and industry lead our state’s economy.  Source

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  Our people have paid into social security for their entire lives and we need to ensure we have a way to keep up our end of the deal. Medicaid exists to make sure our seniors get the care they need, but the system has been abused by too many who really don’t need it. Here’s the simple truth: when those who don’t need help take it anyway, it leaves less help for those who depend on it. We can’t have that anymore.  Source

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


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.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  Marriage isn’t for the government to decide. I believe that marriage is an institution designed for one man and one woman. Thousands and thousands of years of human history have shown us that the institution makes a massive difference in society, for the good. It’s not the government’s job to define what marriage is.  Source

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  Religious and Speech Freedom are guarantees. You shouldn’t be told that you cannot speak, live, or work according to the guidelines of your faith. I’ll fight to protect the First Amendment.  Source

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


Healthcare

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  We need to incentivize doctors and clinics to accept cash payments. The insurance industry isn’t there to be your friend. It’s there to make money from you. Requiring people to buy health insurance was nothing but a guarantee to insurance companies and I’m opposed to that.  Source

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  We need to incentivize doctors and clinics to accept cash payments.  Source


National Security

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  Bolster our Military. We have a military presence all over the world, and our soldiers are the best trained and best equipped. We need to keep that standard up so that everyone knows what might happen to them if they provoke the wrath of America.  Source

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

(Did not answer)


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.

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  Congress needs to fully-fund necessary security measures on our borders. We must protect our interests, our workers, and our people from dangerous criminals who, at this very moment, can walk right into the United States.  Source

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

(Did not answer)

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.

(Did not answer)

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

(Did not answer)


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

(Did not answer)


Values

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

(Did not answer)

(Did not answer)


2nd Amendment

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

(Did not answer)

iVoterGuide Note:  It shall not be infringed upon. After a year full of tragic shootings, it’s all the more important that citizens be armed to protect themselves and their families. I support responsible firearms training for anyone who wants it – including minors. A better-educated people makes for a safer society when it comes to gun safety.  Source
