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?

Never. A doctor should do everything they can to save the lives of their patients. We need programs that help parents be better parents so that the fear of having a child is erased and the comfort of knowing all will be well is reinforced.


Economy

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

Neutral   

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 would end aide going overseas until funding for social security is restored. I would set up a SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE TASK FORCE to determine which individuals are responsible for the theft of our social security dollars and hold them accountable. Each individual who paid into social security is entitled to a return on their investment.

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

Reduce overseas humanitarian aide until we can provide for all US citizens basic needs. Reduce unnecessary military presence in foreign countries. Streamline government organizations that have overlap. Reduce and prosecute fraud and theft if government funds.

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

The Central Banks which developed the student loan scam should be held accountable for increasing education cost so high that the cost of the education far exceeded the value of the education received. They should be hold accountable and forced to reduce the debt load of the student to reasonable levels. Curriculum pricing should be a direct proportion of job salary.


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?

That the churches shall not interfere with the state and the states shall not interfere with the churches.


Healthcare

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

Agree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Disagree   

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

One of the reasons we do not have proper funding for healthcare is because it our politicians have been embezzling our tax dollars under the guise of "humanitarian aide". When aide has been given outside the US, the money never ends up in the hands of those it was petitioned for. We must question if there ever was a need in some areas or if lies were fabricated to entice us to send money to a far away land. Haiti - never got the money, Puerto Rico - never got the money, Ukraine and Iran funds were giving to known terrorist. Until every American is afforded proper medical care, our tax dollars should not be sent overseas. When it came time to give the American people stimulus we got the equivalence of $4/day and our mom-and-pop businesses were forced to close while businesses linked to Chinese supply chains remained opened.


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?

What did Mohammed gain by reducing the Son of God to a prophet only to lose his soul? This is the basic fundamental difference between Muslim and Christian Faiths. As long as the religion you are following brings you peace, you know you are on the path to God, for God is peace & love. The globalists have used religion as a means of dividing a United States made up of different colors, races and creeds. They have radicalized Islam and created an aggressive attack on Christian's for the sole purpose of creating divide in our country. The masters of destruction lie within the Muhajadeen el Khalq in Iran (MEK). This regime was once on the terrorist list until Obama gave them billions of dollars cash in the middle of the night and took them off the terrorist list. It is noteworthy to mention that the MEK formed shortly after JFK was shot and George Soros came into money for his first hedge fund around the same time. There are mill


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.

Agree   

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

I support immigration based on merit first and foremost. I would approve of an employer sponsor program that allows a path to citizenship but would limit employers on the number of candidates that they can sponsor. Once this is met, secondary consideration for those who have relatives in the US and wish to keep the family unit together. Under no circumstances do I support illegal immigration, it is dangerous to our national security to not have records of who is coming and going into and out of our country. We


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Agree   


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.

Neutral   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God,the Father Almighty,creator of heaven and earth, in Jesus Christ His only begotten Son. I believe in the Holy Spirit who is my guide With God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Without Him we are an empty void. Our God is a MIGHTY GOD who can move mountains, comfort us in time of need, direct our every step. Call upon His name and His angels He will send. The Holy Bible contains the Word of God, has survived centuries of persecution, yet still provides the lessons to all life's problems. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord but I shall not persecute another if their walk with God takes a different turn.


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.

All of my social media feeds show I am conservative.

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?

Upon investigating the candidates, I wasn't impressed & honestly feel my qualifications are superior to those my opponents. We are at a critical time in American history where China has 28% GDP & is aggressively working to increase their foothold on the US. We have threats from Muhajadeen el Khalq in Iran to spread radical Islam, threats from globalist to push Agenda 2030, by increasing funding to terrorist organizations through Open Society Foundations such as Antifa, Alqueda, ISIS, MS13, BLM. I'm a linguist & reach out to other countries through social media to learn about their culture. I worked in Neuropathology w/NIMH & DC Morgue & have been published in Neuroscience journals. I bring to the table 32 years of real estate/mortgage banking experience, developed successful after school programs focused on education at reasonable prices & have given over 55k rideshare rides in 9 states,discussing w/250k+ issues that concern them. Valuable information when drafting legislation.


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

No restrictions. Our 2nd Amendment Rights state we have the right to bear arms. It does not specify which type of arms. We need proper education on firearms perhaps beginning in elementary schools. I support installing video surveillance around the perimeter of the schools so that security can be alerted to suspicious intruders and take immediate action.


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.

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?

Establish a SPECIAL INVESTIGATIVE TASK FORCE to ensure transparency and efficiency of the spending of our nation's tax dollars. I support legislation that reaches the goal of affording everyone in America equal healthcare at reasonable prices; allowing for competitive markets of insurance, pharmaceuticals and healthcare providers and permitting global competition when another nation has a superior product. I support legislation that returns the power of education to the states and local school boards, not the federal government, removing Common Core and dividing classes by merit-based instead of age. Academic standards must be raised as a matter of national security and life skills that aide a person in becoming a useful member of society must be obtained. Politics should remain out of the classroom unless the class is specifically regarding politics.

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

If you call me a racist and I am, it is easy to prove, I may have a KKK outfit or take action against someone of color. BUT If you call me a racist and I am not, it is impossible to prove my innocence. A picture of a white man and a black man together does not prove this. How do you divide a United States made up of different races, color, creeds and sexual orientations? You get them to fight to destroy each other. For this reason, our enemy stirs up racism in the United States in order to divide and conquer. If only we could have 1 day where everyone holds hands and takes a vow to judge others on merit and not the color of their skin, their choice of partners or of religion. A day where bygones are left behind and we accept the fact that we are Americans first, United in one cause to preserve life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
