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?

When the child has a deformity that will make life short and painful. Unfortunately these are found in late ultrasounds and the only reason I don't oppose late abortions.


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 wouldn't. People should opt out and invest their money better than SS does

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

Eliminate overlapping agencies, sell off unused buildings and lands, bring troops home and sell foreign bases, stop giving foreign aid - especially to countries that hate us.

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

They should not


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.

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 government can neither compel anyone to practice nor can they prohibit a practice of religious beliefs. They must treat all religions the same.


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?

Healthcare was affordable before the ACA Now a regular plan barely covers more than what used to be an indemnity plan and costs 3x as much. Repeal it all.


National Security

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

Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Stop backing rebels against other groups so that we aren't creating more enemies.


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.

Disagree   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Agree   

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.

Disagree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Anyone who is able to provide for themselves and not a criminal or carrying a contagious disease.


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.

Neutral   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

No Answer   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Reform Jewish But I believe EVERYONE should be allowed to practice any religion that doesn't involve harming or forcing others.


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?

Somewhat Conservative   

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

(Did not answer)

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?

If you wonder what I think about any topic at all, if it gives us more freedom without hurting anyone else, then I agree with it. If it raises spending or restricts our liberties, I'm opposed.


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Disagree   


2nd Amendment

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

None


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 Agree   

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?

Withdraw troops to strengthen defense at home. End omnibus bills, make all bills cover only one topic to prevent pork or bad items sneaking through. Reduce all executive federal agencies to get us closer to a constitutional government.

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

No, but the inability to communicate and listen to each other on both sides is a threat to us being able to remain civil. The media is fueling this divide for ratings.
