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.

Disagree   

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.

No Answer   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

Disagree   

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?

Nonviolent victimless offenders should be released from jail, and prosecutors should be instructed to dismiss those charges in an effort to reduce court costs.


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.

No Answer   

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 Disagree   

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

Disagree   

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

No Answer   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

Government shall neither prohibit nor endorse the free exercise religion.


Healthcare

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.

Disagree   

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Libertarians favor a free market health care system, which includes the freedom to purchase health insurance across state lines.


National Security

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

Strongly Disagree   


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 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 Disagree   

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

Political freedom and escape from tyranny demand that individuals not be constrained by government in the crossing of political boundaries.


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.

Disagree   

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

Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Everyone has the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not cause unjust harm to another. Everyone has the same rights as everyone else. People don’t have more rights, or fewer rights, because of their place of birth. No person can delegate a right they don’t possess to another person. No person or group has more rights than any other person or group. No group can claim a right not possessed by any member of the group. Since no group of people can have more rights than any individual member of the group, no group can revoke the rights of any other person or group. No law, regulation, statute, or other dictate can rightly infringe on the rights of any person.
