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 should only be allowed if the mother's life is jeopardized by the pregnancy.


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.

Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Review the Social Security financial records and identify any excessive spending. Limit the funds that may be coming out to cover other governmental programs.

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

I would work to only allow one bill to be voted on at a time, instead of multiple bills being combined into one. This would reduce the chances of other "fluff" or "junk" being added and hidden in a massive bill.

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

Under no circumstances should the tax payers be forced to pay for someone else's student 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.

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?

The separation of church and state, simply means that the government cannot establish a national religion. Which would placing one religion or denomination over another.


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?

I would identify the common barriers to having adequate, affordable and accessible health coverage. Then work to find ways to overcome those barriers.


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?

I believe that the United States is currently conducting the appropriate actions. Here at home, we need to harden our soft and vulnerable targets, such as airports, market places, and large gatherings of people. Abroad, we should assist our allies in ensuring that these radical Islamic groups are not able to obtain financial backing and a safe haven in which to recruit more people to their cause.


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?

Anyone should be able to enter the United States. However, they should be vetted properly and should enter through the established immigration process.


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.

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.

My spiritual beliefs are very simple. I was raised as a Southern Baptist. I believe that God created the heavens and the earth and all things in the earth, to include us. I believe that God sent his son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. I also, believe that God has given us a conscience to guide us in deciding on things that are right and wrong. He has also given us the Bible, his word to follow and to teach us.

Criminal Justice

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

Other Important Issues
