Questionnaire

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   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Rape, Incest or the life of the mother is in danger and all other options have been attempted to save both


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.

Strongly Agree   

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree   

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree   

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Lowering taxes on businesses and cutting down on regulations that stimy growth for those businesses.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should generally stay out of the way. I think focusing on the government as a savior in a sense is not the right way to proceed.


Religious Liberty

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

Strongly Agree   

Governments should not penalize those who 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 Agree   

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

Strongly Agree   


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

We need to make sure that the corporations that will benefit the most are not writing this legislation. We need to make sure that people will have a fair opportunity to shop for various insurance across state lines thus opening competition.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   


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   

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree   


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

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

Strongly Agree   

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Strongly Disagree   

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree   

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?

Greed is what I believe was the driving factor with making sure there was a separation of powers. People had seen what absolute power does to individuals with the power and the people that live in those nations.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My Christian beliefs drive my values in all aspects of my life and they help with my decisions making.


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.

My website www.dove4virginia.com lists out some of it. But I have participated in various interviews over the past few years where I have spoken about my conservative beliefs.

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

My experience in the public and private sector working with small non-profits all the way up to fortune 500 corporations as well as working for the federal government. I have seen a lot in how things work. My military experience prepared me by showing me what we take for granted on a daily basis.

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

I have been a strong supporter of freedom for my entire life. I have always had this need to serve my community engrained in my being. I believe that as an elected official our primary responsibility is to do the will of the people that we are sent to represent.

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

Strongly Disagree
