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.

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

To protect the life of the mother.


Economy

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

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?

The strength of the social security system is directly tied to market performance. I strong vibrant economy with healthy GDP growth will ensure the solvency of the program.

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.

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 has no role in dictating to people what, where, when, and how people choose to worship. It also means that government should not favor any one faith over another. It does not mean, however, that the law cannot reflect values that religious Americans hold dear.


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?

People should be free to purchase the insurance products they want. Insurance companies should be free to offer the insurance products they want. More transparency about the costs of medical care at the time of service can help people be more informed about which services they utilize. This in turn will help drive competition in the market. Limiting medical liability for doctors can also help reduce instances of hospitals/doctors ordering unneeded tests in an effort to shield themselves from liability, which will drive down costs.


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?

(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.

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.

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?

Anyone who is willing to come to this country and be a productive member of society should be eligible to apply for lawful immigrant status. The number of folks who are admitted should continue to be relative to the country's capacity to accept new people into our labor market.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

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.

Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that we are all God's children and that he wants us to be happy. I also believe that he established a roadmap for happiness which holds the traditional family at the core of that plan. I believe that the Founders of United States were divinely inspired and their legacy is now our divine responsibly. We owe it to our forefathers and our children to continue to safeguard the values of freedom and individual responsibility. We are charged by God to be righteous advocates and teachers while respecting the beliefs of others, even when we don't agree with them.
