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?

The state has no right to force a woman to give birth to a child that will lead to the mothers death. That is completely unconstitutional. However with advancements in medicine the cases of which the mothers life is in danger is very rare. That is the only case in which an abortion should be allowed.


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   

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

Everything that is not explicitly expressed in the constitution as a power entrusted to the federal government should be abolished.


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   

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.

No Answer   

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?

As an elected official my religious preference should not determine my decision when voting for the sake of the people. The constitution will guide me, it just so happens that this country was founded by people with christian beliefs and thus heavily inspired our great constitution.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

If we deregulate and stop with regional healthcare I thing the competition would surly drive down costs.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   


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   

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   

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

Those who will not become a public charge and will become productive members of society.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

(Did not answer)


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.

I am christian and have read the bible a few times. I do self study and read the scriptures to my family nightly.


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.

There are interviews and publications as well as my website and facebook page for reference.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I do not believe you need anything other than a level head, an understanding of our countries history, and a yearning to serve and protect the people and the constitution.

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?

I will answer one of the previously unanswered questions below. 1. I believe that the heartbeat signifies life. However, as previously stated I only believe abortion is an option is if it is a risk to the mothers life.


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

None. No restrictions are authorized per the constitution. All gun laws are unconstitutional.


Other Important Issues

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Agree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

2nd Amendment Preservation, Education, and Prison reform.

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