Right to Life

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.

No Answer   

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.

No Answer   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Primarily in the cases of Rape, Incest, and Health of the mother. No one should be Forced to carry their rapist seed at any time, Especially when it involves children. One other LIE Republicans have pushed is Late Term Abortions, NO Longer happen, except on the Rare Instance that the mother's Life is in Jeopardy Another LIE is that Planned Parenthood does Only abortions, That is Incorrect. FACT: They do less than 1%, and those are covered by Private Donors, not federal funds. If it wasn't for Planned Parenthood Programs of Healthcare for the needy, homeless, it's Family Planning, Our nation would be worse off.


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?

First let's deal with the Facts. The Republicans have been and continue to LIE about it running out of money, Fact is As Long as People are working and paying into Social Security it will Never go bankrupt, unless we continue to allow congress to use it as a slush fund,.

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

Enforcing the tax laws established, Prosecute those corporations who refuse to pay their share of taxes, by the Confiscation of Property even facing charges.

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

There's not really any certain circumstances

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.


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.

No Answer   

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

It means just what it says, NO Laws will be based on any form of Religion. Religious groups Should not be involved in politics, and if they choose to be, they will lose their tax status.


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?

Making it Affordable for everyone regardless of what they make. the ACA has problems that need fixing, and one of the biggest issues is being able to negotiate Medical Procedures as well as Medicines. Also to Provide Coverage for pre-exsisting conditions, making sure that Insurance companies cannot kick people off, or even place caps on costs.

National Security

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


What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

We are Part of the Global Community, and we should work together to Investigate, Charge, Arrest, and a Trial, Including involvement of US citizens. A Reminder, We need to realize that islam is a Religion, and that just like we have Radicalized Christians & evangelicals they all need to be looked at. The threat is not just terrorism, but includes "Domestic" Terrorist, frequently labeled "Good Ol Boys" We are NOT at war with Any Faith.


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.


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.

No Answer   

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?

Our Nation was Founded and Built by Immigrants, It is our Diversity that makes us who we are. We are still a young Nation and as a child makes mistakes so did we, But now it's time to Restore, Rebuild & Heal.


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.


I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Several questions that I left unanswered is because they can't be answered with just an Agree or Disagree Response. In some situations have that grey area, example Concerning Discrimination in businesses, organizations In businesses Religion should not be a consideration of employment. Employees are not their to Preach, they are there to work No Matter what their beliefs are. Several Questions involving Immigration, While there are some serious issues, It needs to be Reformed, Not Abolished. To be Honest, When I reached Question #23, I had to rethink my answers. Our Nation was Founded by Immigrants who were seeking a place to Pray as they Want, Live how they want, Love who they want, to have a family, education, and a Life Free from Threats. Therefore, No Religious Beliefs should be given "Special" Privilaged status, Same with Race, it should Not determine what freedoms and Rights anyone should have


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?


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

I have been very Involved in the LGBTQ Community

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


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

I am a Christian, I believe in our Constitution. I believe that Everyone is Equal and we need to fulfill the true Definition of our Constitution, that we are all Equal We should be able to Live how we want, Pray as we want, and Love who we want. I am a Warrior and am not afraid to Stand up to my own Party if need be. With Me "PEOPLE COME FIRST, ALWAYS" and we seem to have forgotten that, All we have is each other, One World, One People, & One Nation. I have said that I will not accept corporate donations, I am a grassroots candidates, my only concern is "WE THE PEOPLE" Our Founding Fathers WAENED us about a Rogue leader & set up our government as they did with each branch assigned certain Duties & Responsibilities as well as Oversight. I want you to know that I will Always be Available to everyone, Mine has always been an Open Door Policy and Always will be. May God Bless You, Our State, Nation & Our Troops. One more thing to Add, Q.23: Freedom of Religion is Already in Civil Rig

Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.


2nd Amendment

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

Establishment of a National Database & Registry that would allow states to communicate with each other to prevent the sale of firearms at gun shows and tho0se who have mental, emotional, issues, as well as those convicted of Violent Crimes Including Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.

Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.


I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.


Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.


The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Agree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

Tough Choice, So many things have happened in the Last 4 years, it's difficult to choose. On a Personal Choice, #1) Restoration & Rebuilding Our Constitution and Rule of Law, by Overriding All Executive Orders, Immigration Judges Hired, cages taken apart, Reuniting Families, as well as the Military members & Partners Deported directly from their assigned duty posts. I would put together a Joint Ethics Committee Hearing, that would hold All Congressional Republicans, as well as trump and his cabinet Accountable for their Felony High Crimes Committed. #2) Repair & Reform the ACA, Concerning Eligibility, Coverage, and Negotiating Procedures and Drug Costs. #3) Reinstate the AWB, and to Provide funding for states database to communicate with each other as well as the National database.

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

All Hate is a threat to the National Security of our Nation.
