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?

Never


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?

Anything they are spending that violates the constitution should be stopped and doesn't benefit Americans.


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?

the govt cant tell the church what to do. It is to protect the church from govt intrusion.


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?

Price transparency and access across state lines.


National Security

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

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?

I think our immigration system needs revamping. It takes entirely to long to become a citizen. It they pass complete vetting then they should be allowed to enter.


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 am a born again Christian.


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?

Conservative   

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights are to be followed, Period. Less Govt. in our lives, the better. I believe in freedom, personal responsibility and less taxes.

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

The oath I took when I joined the Army never expires. I take oaths very seriously. I am honest, ethical and accessible. I have good relationship with tons of people due to my political activity over the last 8 years of non-stop politicking. I have been all over the world and and have seen the over-reach over govt. and the tyranny that came along with it. I have seen candidates and politicians make deals and not abide by their oath and not follow through with their campaign promises. The public has lost faith in the average political. I want to show the public there are real, genuine folks that can make a difference. I am not controllable by promises of money or easily influenced, yet I will work with "the other side of the aisle" if it is for the betterment of my district and state as a whole. So, to answer this question, I would say street smarts and political experience qualifies me to be the next state rep.

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

no

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

If you want to stop politics as usual and the get back to the Constitution, elect me.


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.

Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

no more restrictions. There are gun laws that have restricted their rights and I plan to get them repealed.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

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?

repeal unconstitutional gun laws make abortion illegal tougher laws on those who abuse and exploit senior citizens.

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

No I think domestic terrorism is the problem and antifa is using racism as a veil of their true agenda.
