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?



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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Continue to grow the economy and cut unnecessary government spending elsewhere.

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

The US Department of Education should be eradicated and education returned to the states, municipalities, and families. We should also reduce our foreign aid and food stamps.

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

None, however the federal government should get out of the student loan business entirely. This would bring tuition costs down and encourage more young people to go to work.

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   

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.


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

It means that tax dollars cannot go to funding and establishing a state church. It does NOT mean that students cannot pray in public schools.


It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Allow people to purchase healthcare coverage across state lines. Competition leads to lower prices and better quality.

National Security

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

Strongly Agree   

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

Surveill mosques and other hotbeds of terrorist activity. Destroy those who pose an immediate threat to the United States.


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   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

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   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

People who can prove they are healthy, able and willing to work in a way that directly benefits US citizens.


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


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. I am saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone. Salvation is not based on works, however morality was instituted by God to show us the best way to live. The wage of sin is death, therefore the more sin in a nation, the more death, both literal and spiritual.


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.

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 believe every action taken by the federal government should be for the betterment of citizens, not foreigners or special interests.

Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   

2nd Amendment

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

The ones currently in place are more than enough.

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.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

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?

Immigration, abortion, 1st amendment protections.

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