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.

Only to save the mothers life

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

First stop stealing from it to fund socialist programs. Then we have to guarantee a strong economy so younger people have jobs so they can continue paying into it.

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

I would probably start with eliminating the federal department of education. I’ll leave that up to the states. I would strongly recommend not paying China back any loans due to their miss handling and cover-up of the coronavirus.

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

Only if the student is willing to serve actively in our military and after the service the G.I. Bill can pay the balance of the loan.


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.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

Exactly what the forefathers meant it to be, that the government can not adopt a state religion and that cannot be forced upon the people to practice. But the people of the United States are free to practice any religion they wish to and in any public Place.


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

I would start by healthy competition of healthcare providers by letting people purchase health care across state lines.


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?

Continue to teach our children about history, and there’s two types of Islamic religion radical and non-radical.


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.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

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

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

All people have the right to immigrate to the United States. As long as they abide by our immigration laws.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
