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?

NONE


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?

(Did not answer)


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?

I find it quite impossible to separate or fragment pieces of the core of who I am based on separation of church and state, but I also understand the personal right for every american to practice whatever religion they choose without government 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?

Fundamentally, I do not believe that the greatest problem that we face in this areana are the result of a lack of access. I believe that our problems overwhelmingly stem from a lack of personal responsibilty and comprehensive health education. Furthermore I would like to see more of an incentive to make healthier choices consistently. One way to do that is with universal health savings accounts for every American.


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?

THose who are willing to come legally and contibute to American soiety.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

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 that Jesus / Yeshua is the son of God and my savior. I believe in grace and repentance which requires the action of turning away from sin. I believe that "Faith without works is dead"! I believe that we approach God through love not legalism; that means that we adhere to biblical principles because we love Christ not because we are obligated to legalism.


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?

Very Conservative   

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

I am not sure what you are asking for with this question.

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

I grew up the son of a pastor and two educators. The bar was set high at a very young age and they encouraged all of us to become free thinkers and to excercise critical thought. Those concepts coupled with higher education and practical business experience, both in and out of healthcare,is what qualifies me!

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?

I do not propose to have all of the answers because I recognize that I merely carry one perspective within a pool of many. My promise is to filter everyone of those perspectives that are shared with me through two filters; my faith in God and my love for the Constitution. As long as those two criteria are met then I promise to be your voice in Tallahassee!


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.

Agree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

I believe that less restrictions on legal gun ownership actually serve to protect public safety. Serveal of the cities most innendated with gun violence carry some of the strictest gun laws. Strict gun laws negatively impact law abiding citizens and favor those who have no interest in following the law anyway.


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?

Universal Health Savings Accounts Amend Majory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act to restore 18-20 year olds 2 amendment rights

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

Racism itself is not a threat to domestic security but the ability of certain fringe groups to manipulate peoples emotions with regard to highlighting a troubled past is.
