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?

Rape, Incest, Danger to Mother


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

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?

Stop the fraud by many that abuse and cheat the system will help. So far the best minds in the U.S. haven't solved this problem. So many people are living longer which taxes the system. And many get benefits that never pay in. This also threatens the entire system. There needs to be stricter guidelines for eligibility.

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

Foreign aid to countries that hate us Wasteful spending on trivial projects and grants Start more of a zero base budgeting system

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

Another question that the best minds cannot solve. I believe taxpayers should not be held to paying off individuals' debts. Higher learning institutions need to stop ripping off our nation with outrageous costs


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?

It means the government does not force religion upon citizens or takes away the right to practice their religion. It does not mean taking God out of government and schools. Today, Christians are being mocked and targeted for their faith by the government, businesses, and individuals. The breakdown of any country is hastened by the elimination of God in their society.


Healthcare

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

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?

The entire government both Republican and Democrat Parties has not been able to solve this. One thing I believe is Medicare for all will bankrupt the country. Illegal immigrants should not receive free health care. Focus on healthy competition among insurance companies. Compensation from government to hospitals and doctors for indigent and very poor families.


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?

Strict control on immigrants who travel to the U.S.A. from countries with terrorist centers Military force against known terrorist centers Sanctions on countries that promote and harbor terrorists National oversite by FBI and other law enforcement agencies to track terrorists


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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Immigration should be limited. One million legal immigrants a year is very benevolent. There should be no lottery immigrants or immigration because a distant family member is here. No immigrants from terroristic countries except in special cases of asylum. Vetting is critical E-verify is critical


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.

Neutral   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Christian Strong belief in Judaic-Christian values based off of the Bible.


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.

How can one verify? I am a Republican and voted that way. I make statements publicly and on Facebook supporting that. I talk to many about being conservative. And I am not a fake conservative or Republican like some members of Congress.

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

Never

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

High school teacher, coach, and principal for 30 years. I am against corrupt individuals who get elected and go to congress for money and fame. I love this country and want to stand against those liberals in congress making a mockery of our beloved constitution and our democracy. I believe that congress members should be like superheroes promoting truth, justice, and the American way. I want be one of those.


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?

Gun ownership is a constitutional right for citizens to protect themselves and their families. Gun laws only benefit criminals since they ignore them while law abiding citizens don't


Other Important Issues

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

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?

Protection of privite citizens against slander that can destroy lives by news media organizations

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

No. Overwhelmingly most people are not racist in this country. We have come a long way and need to continue the effort to eliminate all racism. The reason there is seemingly so much division is the poison spread by the news media and by liberals who see everything by the groups people belong in based off of their skin color. This needs to stop to help heal our society.
