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?

Only as a matter of last resort to save the life of the mother from imminent death.


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?

Cut funding to planned parenthood


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?

Separation of church and state means that there should not be a state religion but it does not mean the expulsion of God from the public discourse.


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?

Allowing insurance providers to compete across state lines in order to encourage true competition within the insurance marketplace.


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?

Anyone who through the legal channels, embraces American ideals of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and is willing to swear to defend and uphold the constitution of the United States.


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.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to this earth to die for our sins. So often, people try to invent new solutions to the problems of today but if we could all get in the habit of turning to scripture, there is an answer for everything within God's Holy Word.


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.

I am proud to be a strong conservative Republican and proudly state that on my website and all my campaign material.

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

As a Marine Corps veteran and business owner, I believe I possess a unique blend of training and real world experience to identify a problem and take actionable steps that work toward a solution. Furthermore, I am not afraid to stand up and fight for what I believe is right.

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?

As a United States Marine Corps veteran, I deployed to Afghanistan in defense of our God-given freedoms and hope to continue that tradition of service as the next State Representative from district 82.


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

Yes   

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

Keep guns out of the hands of convicted criminals and those that are found to be severely mentally ill through due process.


Other Important Issues

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

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?

Economy - we must get our economy back to work by cutting taxes and peeling back government regulation wherever possible to empower small business owners Education - we must return civics and virtues to our classrooms Environment - in my district, we are facing tremendous issues caused by toxic discharges that are coming out of Lake Okeechobee.

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

Racism is always a threat to domestic tranquility but I am believe that the United States has done more for the personal liberty of her citizenry than any other Nation in the history of the world. Radical groups are hijacking instances of racial injustice to advance their leftist agenda.
