Questionnaire

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only if medically necessary to protect the life of the mother.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure 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

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Lower taxes and reduce government regulations on businesses to operate more freely. We need pro-business legislation that will attract and retain good paying jobs, not legislation that suppresses businesses with extreme regulations.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Prevent government regulation and polices from interfering with free enterprise, reducing taxes and have more fair trade polices.


Religious Liberty

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

Strongly 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.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Get government out of the Insurance business. Allow more competition among Insurance Companies, and medical providers. We can seek better ways to find and aggressively prosecute instances of fraud, as fraud increases the costs of health care for everyone.


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.

Strongly Agree

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree


Values

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was published, candidate informed iVoterGuide.com that he intended to answer "Strongly Disagree."

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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

The Founders were aware of mankind's desire for power and control. Therefore, they wrote the Constitution to separate the powers so that there could be a balance in government.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My denomination is Baptist. Through God's Grace, we as believers can know God in a real way because of the most precious gift ever given to man kind God's only begotten Son Jesus Christ our Savior and through the cleansing power of Christ's blood through His redemption of our sins.
