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.

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?

Only to save the life of the mother.


Economy

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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

By never voting to cut Social Security benefits.

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

Stopping the endless wars, cutting foreign aid, and stopping needless liberal programs.

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

There are other solutions to reduce the excessive costs of education and stop the student loan debt crisis.


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   

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.

Yes   

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

The government should not be involved in the affairs of any religion, yet that doesn't mean the government must be devoid of faith. Having God-fearing individuals in office is key to ensuring a moral and well-kept Republic.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

I would promote common sense fixes to Medicare and Medicaid, to ensure it is financially stable, while not cutting back benefits and fighting for coverage of pre-existing conditions.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   

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

The United States should orchestrate the US military and Intelligence Community to cooperatively target and strike terrorists and their support networks.


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 Agree   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

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 Agree   

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

Strongly Agree   

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

Before we can decide who should immigrate and not; the U.S. must enhance its border security, Visa system, and immigration courts.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

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

Strongly Agree   

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

No Answer   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a lifelong Christian.

Criminal Justice

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

Disagree   


2nd Amendment

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

The public is best kept safe when they are allowed to protect themselves and exercise their 2nd amendment rights.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

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

While I do not believe America is a racist country, there are fringe elements in the U.S. that conduct racially motivated terrorism. They should be hunted down and destroyed by the FBI.
