Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or business owners because of their deeply held religious beliefs.

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Free speech is under attack on public university and college campuses.

Strongly Agree   

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree   

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

The nature of mankind is human depravity, this is why we need less government. “If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good?" Bastiat

Very Conservative   

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

The Constitution is the law of the land and it must be upheld. For far too long have we allowed politicians and bureaucrats to violate our founding documents and that must end.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I'm a small business owner, I'm involved in the community, I'm a Father to two wonderful children, and, most importantly, I believe that we need to return to upholding the Constitution, fight the Richmond Radicals, and Restore Virginia back to a bastion of Liberty.

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

Regarding question 11, "Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence," I don't believe it's the public school's responsibility at all to teach sexual education, but, instead, the parent's responsibility. Regarding question 19, "I support the death penalty," being pro-life means being consistent. I disagree with giving the power to kill to the state for that is a slippery slope. However, I believe we the people have the God-given right to self defense and would be a champion for Constitutional Carry so you can protect yourself and family from a threat.

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

No Answer   

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

Agree   


2nd Amendment
