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.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

No circumstances


Economy

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.

Agree   

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

I would have to do more research I’m sure there’s some places to cut


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   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Strongly Agree   

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Strongly Disagree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes

Interference of the church in matters of the state but also limits the interference of the state in church matters.

National Security

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

Strongly Agree   


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.

Anyone should be allowed to come to the US as long as they are properly veted to do so.illegal immigrants who never try to come without registering within time should not be allowed to stay.

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

I believe the Bible from front to back. We need morals, our country has lost family values. We need prayer back in schools and teach the word again. God is almighty and I would never do anything that would go against Gods word.
