Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

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?

Life begins at conception. Besides for the life of the mother, I hope and pray that morally, culturally, and legally we move to a society where abortion is no longer an alternative to life.


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?

Sound fiscal conservative policy does not just include smaller govt and less spending, but endeavoring to keep our national debt at a manageable level consistent with ensuring long term benefit protection.

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

At a higher level, massive government redundancies and consolidations. consolidation of these duplicative programs will save money as well as improve govt services.

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

The affairs of the state should not interfere with our religious freedom . The constitution as written should be interpreted literally.


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?

The affairs of the state should not interfere with our religious freedom . The constitution as written should be interpreted literally.


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?

Principally by opening up the market, getting rid of the near monopolies held in some states, and by allowing religious, civic, and social organizations to create tax exempt health care trusts between a group of families or individuals. I would also encourage various tax-exempt savings instruments for individuals to create their own means of health coverage. I would also repeal laws that prevent governments from negotiating for and purchasing the lowest priced medications.


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?

Terrorism must be met -- when it presents itself as a threat to the safety of our citizens, our nation, and our allies -- with the resources and resolve to defeat it. It is no secret that in order for this fringe to succeed and grow and thrive, they need to be well funded, and cutting off their source of funding is key to eliminating radical Islamic terrorism.


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?

We are a country of immigrants, but we are a nation of laws. Anybody who comes into the country legally and wants to make a better life for them and their family who agrees to assimilate to the US and should be given the opportunity through a legal vetting 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.

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.

My spiritual beliefs are personal. They exist between me and God. My values are basic and were passed to me by my parents. I believe in the Golden Rule and the Ten Commandments and John 3:16 because Jesus Christ is my savior.


Qualifications

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?

In a nutshell, I am a pro-life, pro second amendment, fiscal conservative who believes in smaller government, and even smaller deficits. We are the most benevolent country the world has ever known, and we must continue doing exactly that. But I also believe we must look within our borders to help and promote jobs, infrastructure and better way of life for our own citizens. Finally, while I firmly believe that international commerce plays an integral role in domestic economic policy, we must now begin to take a hard look at all our international trading partners to ensure we are aligned both in the short and long term.


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

The Second Amendment is an unalienable right and shall not be infringed. Violet felons and illegal immigrants should not be allowed to have firearms and that is the law.


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?

Total deduction of property tax on federal income tax. Congressional investigation into COVID-19 deaths in nursing/veterans homes. Change the funding formula for the CARES Act so that funding in based on cases/deaths per 100,000 and not the Obama-era HUD formula.

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

Yes, racism is wrong. Totally wrong. However, the media definitely overstates the effect of racism in today's United States. That, in large part, has led to a sense of instability in many parts of the country.
