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.

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

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.
Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.
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 it was intended in Thomas Jefferson’s 1802 letter to the Danbury, CT baptist that government could not tell the Church how to run their religious activities. The phrase “separation of church and state” appears nowhere in the founding documents, nor in our Constitution. The First Amendment to our Constitution is clear when it states that “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;”. In other words, no state run religion as the founding fathers left from in Europe.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Through free market competition. Allow insurance companies to compete across state lines. As much as possible, get government out of the equation.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
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.

Only those who have been deemed to be of benefit to the United States, and are willing to embrace our constitution, our values, and our social norms.
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.
