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?

None, children are people with rights. No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. Life starts at conception. https://www.iheart.com/podcast/82-garret-lewis-28403290/episode/garret-talks-to-brandon-martin-cd2-61922553/?keyid%5B0%5D=The%20Morning%20Ritual%20with%20Garret%20Lewis&keyid%5B1%5D=Garret%20Talks%20To%20Brandon%20Martin%2C%20CD2%20Candidate%2C%20About%20Ducey%27s%20Lockdown&sc=podcast_widget


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?

Follow President Trump's lead and stop raiding tax payer koney for slush funds. I stand with America's Seniors, they have helped build and have fought for our country.

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

Unconstitutional social programs not outlined in the enumerated powers.

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

None.


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?

At the federal level Congress shall make no law concerning the establishment of religion.


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?

• Allow people to buy health coverage across state lines, thereby increasing competition, breaking up local healthcare monopolies, and thus lowering the cost of healthcare plans.   • Require pricing transparency for all medical services, including the costs of radiologic and other diagnostic procedures.   • Permit trade and other industry and business associations to offer less costly health-care plans to their members.   • Encourage the use of health-care savings accounts.   • Enact medical malpractice reforms to tamp down spiraling insurance costs.   • Crack down on price gouging and restrain the growth in prescription prices with justification and transparency required for substantial price increases.


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 United States should build up a strong national security platform here at home in preparation for the common defense. Our troops should have the best training and equipment to protect American lives from invasion and attack. We should support the free market and develop strong alliances that promote liberty and the American way of life.


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?

Only skilled labor that offer direct benefit to the United States. We need to focus fielding jobs with American workers, engineers, doctors and scientists.


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.

I'm a born again Christian. I'm saved by the blood of Jesus Christ.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I'm a Constitutionalist and the only veteran in this race. After returning home from Afghanistan I went to work on Ft.

Huachuca, I created programs to save taxpayer dollars by promoting from within the force. I know what it takes to keep relevant missions at Ft.
