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?

Abortion is murder. No Exceptions.


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?

Social Security needs to be phased out.

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

All spending should be reduced. Spending on social services needs to be phased out.

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

Never.


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?

Churches should lead the nation and world in political, moral, health, and economic activism. Churches should refuse all government regulation. Churches that allow the government to manage them are fake Christian churches.


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?

I would vote to remove government from health, welfare, education, recreation, and retirement. All healthcare should be non-government.


National Security

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

Agree   

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

Allow only Islamic individuals who disavow Sharia Law to enter. No exceptions. Deport Islamic people who will not disavow Sharia Law.


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?

Only Christian and other persecuted refugees should be allowed for a good while. Also, no homosexual or transgenders. Of course, spouses, children of US citizens. Some skilled and technical people if we have a definite, immediate need. Socialism being collective theft, no socialists.


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.

I follow Jesus Christ in every decision. The Bible's law and principles are more important than man's law. We have no denomination. We only attend non-501c churches. We are pro-Life activists. We go into the streets and in front of baby murder clinics every week. We believe that the 2nd Amendment is a natural right and there should be no gun laws, and only a jury ruling could deprive a person of gun rights.


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.

My website and my history via internet search. There is no person in the world who is more for God's government than I am. I will be 80 soon and I have never used gov't medical assistance. I have not signed up for Medicare. We are anti-vaccination and for alternative medicine. I wish I did not need Social Security, I would love to reject it. Both the Republican and Democrat parties are socialist.

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

No.

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

My wife and I run every two years until we die, with our motive being, to make people accountable for hearing the truth. There is a Great Judgment and you cannot be judged without hearing Gospel truth and political- economic truth. Jesus taught and lived Heavenly Father's motive, to give up our selfishness and promote all truth, not just Gospel truth. Most Christians pick and choose what truths they will live. Selfish Christianity is destroying Christ's sacrifice. We are misleading the world.


Criminal Justice

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

Disagree   


2nd Amendment

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

No restrictions.


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.

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?

Personhood at fertilization. Phase out- the health, education, welfare, recreation, and retirement functions of the Federal gov't. Legislation to define only two genders. Laws to stop the Supreme Court from ruling on issues of state jurisdiction, like homosexual marriage, capitol punishment, etc.

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

The BLM and other communist organizations are playing the race card and causing violence. These people need to be charged with insurrection.
