Right to Life

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe there are few instances, one of them should be life saving to the mother, and in rare, case by case situations of incest or rape, but would highly encourage adoption. The Government should NEVER fund these abortions and abortion should NEVER be used as a means of birth control!


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.

Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

The only guarantee, is that I will FIGHT! This has already been earned and payed into by Citizens and they should NEVER lose it because of wasteful, Government spending. Our "Elected officials" more worried about ILLEGALS, who have done nothing for our country, rather than our own Citizens.

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

The wasteful spending in the form of foreign aid. What countries have stepped up to help us? Why are we spending millions on "gender studies" in Pakistan when we have our own homeless and hungry!

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

None... It's like buying a car or a house. It's an investment into their future.


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.

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?

(Did not answer)


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

No Answer   

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

This is a problem that is going to take bi partisan effort to resolve. It needs to be addressed and resolved in a way that is a win for everyone - a win for the Patients, Doctors, and insurance.


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?

(Did not answer)


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?

I think those who bring value and will help our Country; We MUST take care of OUR own, first and foremost!


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that is necessary for our system of limited government.

No Answer   

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.

I do not belong to any church; my belief is that God is in my heart. I was raised with the values to treat people the way you want to be treated. I do not believe that any one religion is superior to another and in my own personal life, I let my children decide what religion aligns best with them, their heart and their values.

No

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I am not a Politician, and I have no interests other than our country and it's Citizens; our safety, our values and our freedoms. I promise to protect those. We are silenced too often and I've watched so many of our "Elected Officials" tuck their tales and take it. I. WILL. NOT. I have not only thick skin, but a backbone. Americans FIRST, always! These Washington D.C. "Elites" need to come back down to reality - they CANNOT relate to the citizens of this country, because they're not working, sometimes multiple jobs just to make ends meet, they don't live paycheck to paycheck, they don't worry about having enough money to pay their bills. They and their families are set for life, while they leaving us behind. My words will have actions behind them, that I promise.
