Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
I believe in a woman's right to choose. That said, I believe even more in our American rights as written in the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence. The Declaration of Independence states, "the government shall derive its power from the consent of the governed." Therefore, my personal position on abortion doesn't really matter. My role as a US Rep is to listen to my constituents and then vote according to their collective voice. We are pretty upside down in how our country is governed. I intend to walk the talk of a free republic and truly represent the voice of the majority for Colorado's 6th Congressional District.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
The future has always been and will always be uncertain. I will not make guarantees or promises in order to get votes. What I can guarantee is I will work with rather than against my peers once in Congress. I will work with rather than against President Trump once in Congress. I believe President Trump is going to win the 2020 election by a landslide. His intuitive and unconventional leadership will take our country from an era of surviving to thriving, which will ensure an unprecedented level of prosperity for future generations.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
The government has proven through COVID that we have an unlimited supply of funds. There is no need to defund or reduce spending anywhere. Congress just needs to work together to distribute funds in essential areas of economy, healthcare, and national security so Americans can transition from an era of surviving to thriving.
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
I took out student loans to help pay for my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I would never expect anyone but me to pay off my debt. Therefore, I don't believe student loan relief should fall on the shoulders of taxpayers. There are plenty of student loan relief programs a person can take advantage of during periods of financial hardship. I had to take advantage of these programs when I was let go from my job in 2018.
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
I believe the axiom "separation of church and state" is an oxymoron. Church to me means a person's deeply ingrained beliefs about themselves, their God, and the world around them. Therefore, it's an impossibility to have a separation between church and state. Everywhere a person goes, they bring their beliefs with them, and their beliefs guide their actions throughout life. Separation of church and state is just one more piece of rhetoric Democrats use to gaslight us out of reality.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
I intend to leverage the expertise and leadership of the 13 State House Reps within Colorado's 6th Congressional District on all issues, to include healthcare. I will not enter Congress with a silo agenda or promotions created by me alone. The issue of healthcare is complex and each person's health is deeply important and unique to them. I need to have a thorough and accurate read on the state of healthcare coverage in my district as well as input from my constituency via the state house reps before giving an honest answer to this question.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
As an Army officer, I learned the most important part of eradicating threat is to accurately assess the level of it first and foremost. So a thorough and accurate assessment of the level of threat Islamic terrorism poses to us will determine what the US should do about it. It seems we are in a constant state of perpetual panic caused by a number of threats that get projected onto us by a very fearful democratic party: Islamic terrorism, climate change, covid, racism, sexism, economic collapse, etc etc etc. Are these true threats to our lives, or are they projected onto us for population control? I don't know the answer. I now question everything I read in the news. I will have a better pulse on these threats once I'm in Congress.
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.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.
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.
Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?
My great grandpa immigrated to the United States in the early 1900s. He fled the communist pogroms occurring in Poland at that time. He immigrated to the U.S. in search of the American Dream. He followed immigration procedures and laws. It took him a while to get his citizenship, but he put in the work and eventually got it. People who immigrate here and follow the established procedures and laws should be allowed to stay and attain citizenship.
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I was raised Catholic and spent many years away from the church and religion in general. I was very angry at religion and turned to science and new age spiritual enlightenment for truth. After a very windy and tumultuous 20s and 30s, I have found my way back to God and Catholicism in my early 40s. My experience of church as a woman is much different than it was as a child. I find beautiful symbolism in the Bible, solace in the ritual of mass, and nostalgia in my childhood memory of growing up Catholic. I feel grounded now that I am no longer angry at my roots. I find comfort in my religious roots and truly believe God has a healing plan for us that is far greater than any of us politicians have control over.
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?
Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
On social matters, I am liberal and support family and local freedom for how to handle them. When it comes to the economy, our American rights, and national security, I am conservative and will always vote to protect our rights, our country, and our economy. I believe social matters are personal. Therefore, the federal government does not need to get involved. Social matters should be handled at the familial and local levels. Local government officials need to listen to their constituents regarding their beliefs on social matters and develop policies based on their collective voice.
Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.
Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
For most of Trump's presidency, I got swept up in the smear campaign the Democrats and mainstream media launched against him. I thought he was public enemy #1, and I set out on a one woman revolution against him. Now that my unnecessary revolution is over, I see that he is actually the best president our country has ever had. He is the world's first free leader. He ran for president on his own volition with his own money. He leads with intuition and gut instincts. His leadership is unconventional and politically incorrect but, believe it or not, he is the best thing that has ever happened to us. He set us all free to unapologetically be who we really are and step into our life's purpose where we will thrive. I am incredibly grateful to him, am following his lead as an unconventional and politically incorrect leader, and am excited beyond words to work with him as a congresswoman.
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
We don't need anymore restrictions on gun ownership. No additional laws/restrictions will stop mass shooters and gun violence. A mass shooter is already a lawless human being. What needs to happen is mainstream media needs to quit sensationalizing these stories. You sensationalize the story, and the story will continue. You don't give the story attention, and the story will end.
I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.
I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.
Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.
The Electoral College should be abolished.
In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?
There are currently over 400,000 pieces of legislation sitting in Congress. We don't need more legislation. Congresspeople are notorious for having Chicken Little syndrome during election years. Everyone is screaming "the sky is falling!" so they can show how quickly they band aid crises with new laws. This approach has never solved any problems. In fact, it just buries problems on top of problems because nothing gets accomplished during periods of crisis. We need to clean up the legislation we currently have and dig up our founding docs. The US Constitution and Declaration of Independence are all we really need to lead the country at the federal level. Schools need to start teaching in detail about the US Constitution and Declaration of Independence. This will ensure future generations are well educated on what their rights are in our land of the free and brave.
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
I believe people who do not think or act for themselves get swept up in the two dimensional narratives that mainstream media projects onto us. The truth is deeper than what is presented in the media. The truth is more complex than what is presented in the media. I believe a person's greatest threat are the people within their own demographic. As a woman, my greatest opposition and betrayals have come from other women. I believe white is white's greatest threat. I believe black is black's greatest threat. We continue to be told by the madness in media that the fight is us vs. them, white vs. black, men vs. women. That's not the truth, and I refuse to let mainstream media narratives guide my diplomatic decision making as a congresswoman.
