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 in the case of saving the LIFE of the mother.


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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Limit Social Security payments to only those that have paid into it. Stop using Social Security for programs that fall outside of its mandate.

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

The Constitution is clear on the role of government. Fund only what is authorized under the Constitution. If this were followed, the budget could be reduced by nearly 80%.

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

None


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   

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?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting thereof.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Repeal Obamacare! Allow market driven solutions. Get big government out of the way of the American people and put the people back in charge of their own health care decisions. This will deliver a strong, efficient system that doesn’t force anyone to empty out their pockets to cover medical bills. Allow the sale of insurance across state lines. Encourage healthier lifestyles through premium incentives.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Proper intelligence gathering, identify threats, and actively pursue terrorists to neutralize them in their place. Exercise cooperation with international allies and illustrate that peace through cooperation mutually benefits all concerned. Absolutely forbid any foreign system of law to be introduced to our legal system. Commit to educating our youth and future naturalized citizens on the U.S. Constitution.


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   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

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   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

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

Stop illegal immigration. The illegal immigration problem is actually part of the movement to merge the United States into a North American Union. This plan is supported by the establishment-oriented leadership of both parties. As with past civilizations, massive immigration is being used to alter the nature of our constitutional republic. I do not oppose immigration, I oppose massive uncontrolled immigration, both legal and illegal. We need to restore border security by enforcing the immigration laws we already have. I also oppose any new amnesty or guest worker laws.


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 in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and that His Word and Spirit are the primary governing forces in my life. I believe strongly in the sanctity of life and the importance of the biblical portrait of marriage.
