Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

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?

The Texas is required to balance the budget and that needs to stay in place. I think we need a small business owner like me to be in office so that I can find efficiencies and help us root out waste, fraud, and abuse.


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.

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Increase competition remove restrictions, and help consumers price shop services by providers to get the coverage they need.


National Security

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

Strongly 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?

We are a nation of immigrants, but immigration should be done legally.


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

Disagree   

Promotion of the LGBT agenda in public schools, including teaching of “sexual orientation” and “gender identity”, is completely inappropriate and should be opposed at the state and local level.

Strongly Agree
