Questionnaire

Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

(Did not answer)

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

Agree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

(Did not answer)


Economy

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

No Answer

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

Agree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Agree

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

A healthy business environment is the best way to bring down unemployment. Over-regulation,high taxes, artificially set minimum wage all make it difficult for all businesses and small businesses especially.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should keep the country safe, and as much as possible allow the free market to work


Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or business owners because of their deeply held religious beliefs.

Agree

Governments should not penalize those who define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Agree

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

Agree


Healthcare

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

Disagree

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

There was a proposal in Virginia this year to allow small businesses to band together to get group insurance with better coverage and better rates. I would vote to support that and would also vote to override the veto of the bill the Governor did. In addition, I have been researching some of the suggestions that The Heritage Foundation has done on allowing Medicaid money to be used for private plans. That research seems to show better coverage, lower cost and less utilization of the emergency room.


National Security

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.

No Answer

I support sanctuary cities.

Disagree

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Disagree

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

Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

No Answer

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Disagree

Free speech is under attack on public university and college campuses.

Agree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Agree

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

The Founders understood mans nature to be a fallen sinful nature and separated the powers based on that knowledge.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an evangelical Christian, my father was a pastor and I have regularly attended church and incorporate those values into my everyday life.
