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?

The decision should be between the mother and doctor only if the mother's life is in question.


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?

I will remain neutral on this issue.

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

I will work to cut spending in the following areas: Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Education, Energy, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, Labor, Transportation, and Treasury. Cut subsidies to individuals and business. End Obamacare and cut wasteful spending in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.

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

It is not the taxpayers responsibility to pay off student loans. It is the students responsibility.


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?

It was meant to be that the country wasn't to have an official religion or sect. Government shouldn't be indifferent to religion or hostile to it. The Declaration of Independence states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness." If the declaration states we are endowed by our Creator, than how can we separate church and state in the sense of keeping the idea of church from government?


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?

Get rid of the Affordable Healthcare Ac, push for free market plans, keep private health plans, price transparency, and cutting unnecessary spending in Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security. No mandates. cut regulations on health insurance and doctors.


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 have policies in place already. They need to be implemented and amended when the need arises to protect America.


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?

Legal immigrants who abide by America's legal means of entry.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

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 believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior. (Galatians 2:20) I also believe that it is a personal relationship between you and God through His Son Jesus. Religion is not the true church, the body of Christ is.


Qualifications

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?

Conservative   

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I will make my decisions base on Constitutionality of individual issues. Immigration for an example. I believe it is the governments responsibility to protect the inalienable God given natural rights of it's citizens. I believe it is the federal governments privilege to regulate immigration and naturalization.

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?

Not at this time.


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree

The restrictions on convicted violent felons to include convicted domestic violence offenders.

(Did not answer)

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

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?

Ending Obamacare, Reforming Immigration, and passing legislation to fight human/child trafficking.

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

I feel corrupt politicians and the news are making the issue larger than what it is. We can't take away the fact that racism exist but we can't continue to allow politicians and news to push a narrative in order to divide the Nation. The narrative pushed has only angered the Nation, instead we need a massage of unity. That being said if the Nation doesn't wake up to this false narrative than it will be a threat to domestic security.
