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?

As of today, I have not become aware of any reason for an abortion.


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?

In order to protect Social security, we need to increase money coming into the reserves via more employed people and lowering the government budget.

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

Across the board.

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

There are grants available to students that they can use.


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 constitution was written to protect us from the government, not the other way around. The government should not tell us when, where, and how to pray.


Healthcare

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

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?

Currently, there are different health care plans available that cost less than $100.00 a month. We also need to have interstate commerce that will allow people to purchase more affordable policies from other states.


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?

As a nation, we need to pray, but we also need to show the world that we will not condone any terroristic activities that affect US interests.


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?

Everybody that is properly verified that will enhance the American way of life should be allowed to come.


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.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Jesus is my Lord and savior.


Qualifications

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?

Very Conservative   

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

Economic. The private sector should be allowed to flourish and bring innovations to society. Foreign policy. We need to reach treaties that are beneficial for both parties. Immigration. We need to secure the border and properly vet those coming into this country. Social matters, please be more specific.

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

No

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

FAITH FAMILY FREEDOM is my motto. FAITH, you have to stand for something, if not, you fall for everything FAMILY is the glue that holds communities together. FREEDOM, without freedom this nations has no future


Criminal Justice

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

The laws already in place are adequate to protect public safety. Criminals do not follow the rules, therefore, more laws will not warranty the public safety from guns.


Other Important Issues

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Disagree

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

As long as some organizations keep separating Americans by classes, ethnicity, and color, racism will never end. We need to call all of us Americans and pray for one another.
