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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I would keep our commitment to those who have been guaranteed social security. Future generations should be educated, encouraged, and incentivized to provide for their own retirement program. Social Security makes up 25% of all Federal spending, this is not sustainable

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

Anything that does not secure our border, protect our constitutional rights, or undermine our ethical commitments is fair game. Entitlement programs to illegal Aliens and healthy, working age Americans would be a great starting point.

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

none


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.

Yes   

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

Quite clearly stated in the first amendment - "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." Government does not determine what our beliefs or religious practices should be in so much as our individual practices do not infringe on the rights of others to believe or practice as they choose.


Healthcare

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?

1.) Fully Repeal the Affordable Care Act 2.) Remove Regulatory Mandates 3.) Promote Choice and Competition in a Free-Market healthcare system 4.) Provide individual tax relief for health care benefits


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?

1.) Secure US Borders 2.) Fund and bolster intelligence and counter intelligence agencies 3.) Enhance Domestic and International information sharing 4.) Improve US immigration policies and vetting systems 5.) Swiftly and strongly address state sponsored terrorism


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   

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.

Agree   

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

Those seeking the American dream to realize life, liberty, and happiness. Those who have been vetted and determined to not pose a threat or danger to others seeking to live the American dream. The number of which shall be determined and adjusted by a closely reevaluated process as to not overwhelm the culture in which immigrants are wishing to integrate into to.


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.

God comes first in my life. God's word is truth. Judaeo/Christian values have made America great and established a moral threshold for sustainability without such - America is destined for failure God has granted people the freedom to choose their own religion. Government should not infringe on this right.


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 have worked/volunteered for various churches for the past 30+ years to educate and promote conservative Christian values. I have worked with various Republican groups to advance conservative values. I have been a Republican Party Delegate to create and secure a conservative party platform.
