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?
The right to life is the first unalienable right in the Declaration of Independence.
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?
Social Security belongs to the people who paid into it and Congress should be forbidden from re-appropriating those funds for any reason. All funds previously removed for other purposes should be returned to the Social Security coffers.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
Amend the US Constitution to require a balanced budget except during a formally declared war (Congressionally approved); require all expenditures to be tied to prioritized national objectives; prohibit omnibus spending bills; prohibit continuing resolutions; terminate Congressional benefits and pensions; institute entitlement reform; modernize government administration; and increase taxes on foreign direct investment that is not critical to US national security.
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
It is not the taxpayer's responsibility to pay off the personal loans of any other citizen(s). Lenders should treat education loans with the same scrutiny and return-on-investment evaluation prior to loaning money for education in the same manner that they do for homes, vehicles, or any other loan. Poor lending practices are not justification for taxpayer-provided bailout.
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?
The government may not dictate, legislate, or adjudicate any one religion over and above, or to the exclusion of, any other religion. Government may not prohibit the free exercise of religion at any place or time, including on public grounds.
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?
Healthcare is a service, not a right, and the government’s role is to administer policies that facilitate the streamlining of health service processes and systems in a way that improves access and reduces costs. Additionally, healthcare policy should appropriately address the input-side of the system including food safety, standards, and labeling. Additional improvements include but are not limited to: accepting pre-existing conditions, penalizing prescription price gouging, mandating provider menus with listed pricing, incorporating non-traditional and holistic treatment methods, eliminating hidden billing, and focusing on health maintenance and prevention education.
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?
Prohibit the establishment and practice of sharia law in the US due to its incompatibility with the US Constitution; prohibit charitable contributions, foreign direct investment, and immigration from nations that support or harbor terrorists; increase economic opportunities for populations vulnerable to terrorist recruitment both domestically and internationally; and defeat state sponsors of terrorism.
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?
Immigration is a pillar of our national identity, but the rule-of-law is the foundation upon which that and all other pillars stand. The process of immigrating to the United States must be done lawfully. Those who have the skill, aptitude, and desire to make America their new home, to make America a better place, and who pledge their lives and allegiance to this great nation should be allowed to immigrate.
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.
Born again Christian that sees God in the details of every day life. I am flawed and unworthy on my own but made whole through the sacrifice of Jesus. I'm grateful every day for who I am and the blessings I have been given. Every person must walk their own path, and find their own way to faith, whatever they may call it. My beliefs belong to me, and yours to you, but as long as we can converse in peace and listen to each other's hearts, we shall both be better people. And if you have to hurt someone else to get to your heaven or paradise, then you aren't in faith and you aren't serving God.

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?
As the fifth consecutive generation of my family to serve in military uniform, all of us combat veterans, I can honestly say that serving my country has truly been the honor and privilege of my lifetime. And while I'm proud of my service, it is not the pride that carries me forward into this campaign but rather the purpose of my service that brings me here. I seek the trust and honor of your support and your vote! And remember, LIBERTY will cost you a campaign contribution, but socialism will cost you everything!
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
To keep (have) and bear (use) arms is the quintessential right of the U.S. Constitution that prohibits governmental infringement upon individual ownership of any arms, guns included, and government officials are obligated to protect that right along with the rest of our constitutional rights when they swear their oath of office. Specifically regarding firearms, the government should support gun safety and education for all citizens.
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?
Most importantly, I will author/sponsor legislation mandating voter ID and ballot security; secondly, legislation that mandates the Department of Justice to review the conduct of every government official in the country, in all three branches of government, whether elected or appointed, regardless of political affiliation, to determine criminal culpability and liability pertaining to obstruction of justice if they supported sanctuary cities, aided or abetted illegal alien activities or persons, or willfully violated the constitutional right to keep and bear arms; and third, legislation that specifically addresses and mutes the socialist agenda (Saul Alinsky's guide).
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
While racism is ever-present and ever-repugnant, it's presence does not pose a threat to domestic security. That being said, the purveyors of racism, the race-baiters, those who profit from fanning the flames of racism, aligned and enabled by a left-wing media establishment that prides, feeds, and supports itself by dramatizing, marketing, and manipulating the divisive rhetoric of each and every episode, are all a far greater threat to domestic security, and domestic tranquility, than the crime of racism itself.
