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.


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   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Cutting all welfare benefits to non-working Americans, and making sure only American citizens who have paid into social security are recipients.

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

Foreign Aid.

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

I support anything that makes it easier for young Americans to get married and have children. The student loan debt crisis is a reality- our current establishment is importing cheap foreign labor by the thousands, and young college graduates are being forced to compete with foreigners (who will work way longer for way less) for jobs. As a result, young Americans are not getting married, not having children, and falling into addiction.


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?

An opinion piece written by Benjamin Franklin.


Healthcare

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

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?

Legalize Free Market Healthcare-making Healthcare available and easily accessible across state lines. Citizens should be able to purchase healthcare as easily as they do car insurance.


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?

An immigration moratorium and deportations of all those associated with Islamic Terrorist groups on American Soil.


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?

Christians under religious persecution, and migrants under a merit-based system who come here for our values and not our benefits.


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.

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 am an orthodox christian, and I submit to the teachings of the Orthodox Church.


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?

Very Conservative   

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

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?

I am an opioid epidemic survivor, and fighting to address the issue of drug addiction is the driving force behind my candidacy. I am a true America First candidate and believe that politicians on both sides of the aisle have left the American working class family to fend for themselves. Traditional Christian values are everything America was founded on- and I'm fighting to preserve that.


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?

Any Restrictions on gun ownership are an infringement of our Second Amendment rights.


Other Important Issues

Neutral   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Neutral   

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

Strongly Disagree
