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.

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.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
Money to universities through grants and direct support that have indoctrinated three generations of America hating liberals. Also, all programs that do not fulfill constitutionally mandated obligations such as defense and infrastructure. Everything else is on the table.
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.
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
It means that no government will specifically mandate or impose upon the citizenry a state designated religion. Beyond that Americans are free to practice their faith without restriction and without fear of government intimidation.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
Allow market driven solutions. Aggressively pursue fraud against the government. Allow the sale of insurance across state lines. Encourage healthier lifestyles through premium incentives. Develop a system where people with pre-existing conditions be provided access to insurance coverage by establishing a universal coverage risk pool. Strictly define pre-existing conditions.

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.

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.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I fear God and pray for His mercy. Christ compels me to serve Him and our nation. His Word and Spirit are the primary governing forces in my life. This is why I believe so strongly in the sanctity of life, the importance of the biblical portrait of marriage, and the important but limited role of government in our nation. I am a practicing Roman Catholic and have been married to my wife Lisa for 34 years. We have 3 sons and five daughters and a new grandchild.We are committed Christians and actively encourage our friends and community to advocate and defend our Christian heritage in the public square. I am running this race to inspire other committed Christians to be courageous and determined in the defense of our faith and nation, to promoste prosperity in the great state of Florida, and to serve my fellow citizens.

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
Endorsement by Eagle Forum twice in the past, awaiting current endorsement. Former naval flight officer with 30 combat missions in Desert Shield/Desert Storm. I fully understand the importance of combat readiness and that peace is only attainable through strength. Unapologetically pro-life and have maintained that stance as evidenced by my 30 plus year marriage and the raising of my 8 children. I am now a proud grandfather. I have physically and financially supported and volunteered for pro-life causes, crisis pregnancy centers, ARC Gateway in Pensacola. Most recently I made two videos directed toward Gov DeSantis pleading with him to shut down the Pensacola abortion clinic during COVID-19 shutdowns. One of the videos made Life News. As a military officer and business leader for many years, I value principled conservative leadership and will not be afraid to stand up to establishment bureaucracies, including Triumph Gulf Coast.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
As a professional military officer i was educated and trained in the military art of warfare. I believe it to be essential experience to have functional knowledge of military affairs in for public office holders. For the past 28 years, as a small business owner and real estate developer, I am fully aware of the impact government and economy have on one's ability to maintain a business and make a profit. Private business ownership is a good thing. Profit is a good thing. My personal experiences during the economic downturn of 2006-2010 have provided me an incredible insight into the disastrous effects of government interference on markets. Government, credit rating agencies and big bank collusion bankrupted the country and no none was held accountable. lack of accountability and greed has had a profound effect on our nation, an people who have lived through and survived such experiences bring priceless knowledge and wisdom to the office.
