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?

I find no circumstances where abortion should ever be allowed. Even in cases and rape and incest I have known adults who in spite of their condition of conception were valuable example of God grace and love for all creation.


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?

The size of government operations and the funding of programs that hamper the pride and work product of the citizens.


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.

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?

It means the state cannot choose any religion over another. Nor require any religion within the confines of the constitution from practicing same.


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?

I would seek to release competition into the market place. To rid the encumbrances of certificate of need and remove government economic law-making of the health care market place.


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?

Immigration should be withheld from individuals


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.

That Jesus is the intermediary between myself and God.


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 is no proof "validating" my previous answer. To be validated is beyond understanding.

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

My graduate degree in Public Administration with a non-profit emphasis helps me to understand the cross roads of education and government operations. My graduate degrees in Business Management and Network communication help me to be grounded in various knowledge sets involving legislative presentments. My undergrad degree in Criminal Justice and Communication management also will assist in identifying legislation cause and effect on the community. My experiences are not limited to one segment of a community and feel well prepared for battle across many fronts.

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

No never!

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

It appears that government gets involved and controversy follows. An example is marriage licenses. The institution of marriage is not one of government but one of God. Yet in this current crisis of government issuing marriage licenses it has resulted in a blessing of government that should not be confused with a blessing from God. Government regulating many businesses has a deleterious effect on our economy.The idea of government setting up boards of competitors to determine a marketplace comes with inherent risks to protecting established processes that put a glass ceiling on opportunities to improve. I would also introduce that regulation of attorneys is moved from the Bar to legislation.


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 Agree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

All restrictions impact public safety! When a restriction is placed on a person it weakens the person right to defend themselves and/or others. I would support no restrictions and seek to remove any already in place.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1. Curtail and eliminate special hospital districts and replace with the private sector.I.E. remove all laws similar to certificate of needs. 2. Curtail and eliminate the conflict between public unions and public agencies. I.E. Public unions that influence public agencies to action contrary to the tax payer accountability. 3. Curtail and eliminate all agencies that regulate commerce via competitors on a board or commission.

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

Racism is not a threat to domestic security. As I believe much of it is induced through political strategies to effect elections. The lack of enforcement of laws against any violent actor for that cause must be brought to justice.
