Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
Only to save the Mother
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
I would introduce a bill that would stop the Social Security system from being a slush fund for any other program. Nancy Pelosi and Obama tapped into SS to fund Obamacare. My bill would stop ANY use of SS to fund others Period.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
I'll support reform of how legislation is submitted and brought to the floor. "PORK" programs added to Emergency/disaster legislation will NOT be supported, each bill must stand on its own. Example- the COVID response bills for stimulus and business/paycheck protections had pork programs for abortion /Kennedy center/Planned Parenthood Frivolous University research- that money must go human/environmental, etc. added value knowledge
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
As directed in the Constitution and the Federalist Papers. The term "separation of church and state" means to me that the Government will not force its citizens in the direction of one set belief and will not make America one religion. Also, I believe that Government should not totally disband the practice of any religion within the confines of a government-supported facility ( ie: schools. If a person wants to pray at school it should not be frowned upon. It should not be mandatory, as well, and not be restricted to one religion.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Allowing cross-state border competition( free market) will increase options, create competition to lower prices, and I will submit a bill to eliminate using Social Security and Medicare as a "Slush fund" ( as what it was used for during the Obama Administration, at the beginning of Obamacare) as it is currently used to fund unnecessary programs and money grabs. Torte reform will be a must, as many frivolous lawsuits drive the cost of healthcare higher, and create a system of diminished care, as Doctors and health care professionals are reluctant to expand their care for fear of being sued.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
To start; eliminate domestic or foreign terrorism as simply a crime- make it an act of war against our country. Enhance the sharing of information between federal/ state/and local agencies so that nothing can "slip through the cracks". The same for visa security coordination (State and Homeland security). This can be accomplished as well by rededicating our country's defenses to support terrorism fighting tools and deterring threats before they can materialize and come to fruition. "Follow the money". Terrorism does not fund itself. Finding the core funding and machine behind the terrorists can help to eliminate them. I have authored a series of books on preparing for terrorism and biological terrorism.
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.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Only immigrants that follow the set legal process , and that will add value to our society .
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I believe that moral values have collapsed in our country. we need to bring back God to America, including our schools. I hold to my Christian upbringing and values.

I'm a retired firefighter, Veteran of the 101st Airborne, and the President of the 101st Airborne Association in Florida. I am a strong Patriot, supporting our 1st and 2nd Amendment rights, and our system of free-market commerce. I stand with President Trump, and I will fight to ensure that ALL Americans can enjoy "Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness".
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
Felons should be restricted. Maintain the ban on fully automatic/Machine guns that was imposed in the 1930s, unless one has a Title 3 permit from the ATF. Other than that, we must adhere to the 2nd Amendment "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed."
I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Every 4 years, the year prior to the Presidential election, the voter rolls should be "purged ".
