Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Disagree   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Disagree   

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?

To protect the health & safety of the mother. I believe in fetal-viability, and the unborn-infant has legal-rights. The mother has an absolute right to Privacy as well.


Economy

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

Agree   

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?

Protect the solvency of Social-Security at every annual-Budget. Eliminate the $127K cap on wage-withholding. Raising the minimum-wage will increase tax-revenue.

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

Fraud, Waste, & Abuse always. Eliminate the $127K cap on Wage-withholding. Reduce Defense-Spending & remove tax-loopholes.

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

Loan-Forgiveness through Public-Service. Interest-rate reduction/elimination. Disability.


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?

Church must not infect/influence the State, and the State must not promote/fund the Church.


Healthcare

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

Strongly 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?

Continue to expand Medicare/-id, as well as subsidize Tri-Care, CHIP, & private-employer insurance.


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?

The terrorist-regime controlling the shia-Nation of Iran should be toppled through any means available. Extremist-Sunnis, like Baghdadi-ISIS must be imprisoned or defeated.


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.

Strongly Disagree   

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?

This is a trick question: traditionally, if one gets here by any means available & works for 7 yrs., then he/she is a Citizen. Technically, We only look for the best, smartest, hardest-working People who apply. This aging-population needs new-Workers, like the White-Hispanic Christians to the South, who are already here & ready. Political-Asylees are always welcome 24/7, criminals are not welcome.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Agree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

I was raised as a Baptist-Republican from '75 to '07, then converted to Catholicism & joined the Knights of Columbus. I believe in God the almighty maker of heaven & earth, and his son born of the virgin mary, and the Holy-Spirit. I denounce Satan & evil, in all of its forms.
