Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.

There are no circumstances where it should be allowed.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
The only way is to have meaningful entitlement reforms. For people under the age of 50 years old, we are going to have to raise the retirement age in order to sustain Social Security benefits.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
All areas of the US government must be reduced.

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
A true limited federal government would not impose unaffordable and unconstitutional healthcare insurance scheme on the American people. With the best medical practices and medicine in the modern world, the United Sates should assure to have the world’s best health care. Obamacare is a thinly veiled attempt at a government takeover of the health insurance delivery system, ultimately leading to a single-payer socialist system. In order to lower costs in the healthcare market, we must provide healthcare tax benefits and incentives to individuals, all while removing the current tax treatments from businesses. Our federal government must also use the Commerce Clause as fully intended, by opening up the purchase of health insurance across state lines. State reciprocity allows for citizens to seek their own doctors and care, allowing the free market to thrive and work as intended. These reforms in the healthcare industry would center on empowering consumers and patients.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
