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?

No abortion is justifiable, but in the case of Rape & forced incest. I believe the women should decide. Not the government. No abortion should be done with tax-payers money.


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?

I will reduce money on education if they do not set a curriculum that will benefit our children. We are paying schools to created socialist, for a socialist America. Florida spends more money on education than anything else. We are paying to create socialist, I will cut down in education if the current curriculum in schools that take away tax payers money continue to fund socialist anti-American schools. It is time to put in place a curriculum, books and a pro- AMERICA way of teachings.


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?

What this means to me is that, the government has no saying and should not be in control in mandating or saying anything in regards to whom can practice or where can someone practice their respective religious beliefs. This way by separating the government from religion, the government cannot tell people what to do in regards to their religion.


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 will bring to my state of Florida, other companies that will challenge the current healthcare companies that aren’t doing helping our Floridians with better coverage. Healthcare companies have to be more transparent with the consumers. The people need to know what they are paying for. Transparency, and full coverage. Competition will make the insurance companies fight for the costumer, not the other way around.


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?

People that are more like Americans, People who will come and work hard and earn a living. Not criminals.


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.

Neutral   

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.

Jesus Christ is OUR LORD AND SAVIOR.


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.

We need a strong economy, more jobs and more freedom to help buisiness. The less the government is involve in our lives, the less control the government has over our Buisiness, the better it is for the people. I agree on export and import taxation, forcing companies to stay in the USA, and making in America and not China. The UNITED NATIONS, Europe and South America must pay us more money. We should not be giving money away to countries that do not do anything for us. We must put America First. We need companies to return to the USA. The USA, must concentrate on the Americas, not in Asia , for future Buisiness partners. We cannot let everyone enter into the USA, we must stop giving $700 + to people who come from other countries. Many times they are making more than what some U.S citizens receive from their retirement checks. We as America, we have the right to deny entry to anyone we do not know. Illegal immigration is not good for America, come legally, and maybe you can stay.

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

I was born in a communist country. In the last few years, I’ve witnessed many of the same things that I saw in my country, here in Florida. The leftist propaganda, the indoctrination in the schools, the government spreading more into our lives and only a few Florida politicians say anything. The rest of the politicians have and agenda, and it is not to help the state or the people, but to help their pockets. My agenda is to put “the People FIRST”. To restore our constitution and our republic. That is my main goal. Less government, more freedom, more liberty. Experience does not qualify a person to be in office, contrary, usually those with lots of political experience are the ones to steal and take advantage of the people. The heart to restore and fight for the people against all evil. That is something that you are born with, And cannot be bought.

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

Never

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

I will make sure as Floridians, that you are the owner of your house. I will push to eliminate property taxes for Retired 65 and older US citizens that have lived and owned a house for over 10-15 years. I will protect our second amendment Our children, Our liberties and our freedoms. Less regulation for our buisiness, Less government telling us what we can and cannot do in our own homes. Less tolls in our highways. I will fight the evils of human trafficking in our state and I will fix our foster care system. I will add more money management classes in our schools, and I will have more choices for vocational schools ( not everyone is meant to go to college) These are just a few of the things that I will do for our state and For My people Of Florida. Always supporting our Governor Desantis, and OUR PRESIDENT Trump.


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?

No Answer   

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

None. I will make Florida Open carry, I will take down the unconstitutional Red Flag Laws, and I will restore the love for our SECOND AMENDMENT.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

No Answer   

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?

Amend Or eliminate the red flag laws, Educational bill that prohibits any schools or universities that take money from the government to have a leftist socialist anti-American agenda. (Restore the curriculum of the schools, to a pro-America curriculum) Push for a legislation to eliminate property taxes on Retired 65 and over US citizens that have lived in their homes and in the United States for over 15 years.

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

Racism is not a problem in America. This is something the communist, socialist and the leftist agenda has in place to keep diving the country.
