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.

Neutral   

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?

Abortion is already legal but most importantly when the life of the mother is in danger.


Economy

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

Neutral   

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?

Reconstitute the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare which was eliminated under President Reagan.

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

All spending should be scrutinized and waste needs to be illiminated.

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

People (taxpayers) took loans out and have to pay their loans.


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?

Amendment I of the U.S. Constitution states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...", this is the mandate for our nation.


Healthcare

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

Agree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

This already exists. People who can not afford private insurance receive Medicaid and hospitals can not refuse medical treatment for anyone.


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?

Confront it immediately and wherever it manifests itself.


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.

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.

Neutral   

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?

There are already existing laws on the books on asylum and legal immigration. Since the establishment of our great nation, everyone has had the right to immigrate to the U.S. at their choosing. This is predicated on the merit of their case and their ability to contribute to the American story and the prosperity of a strong, independent, and viable nation.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Agree   


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

I am a Christian.
