Right to Life

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


Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.


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?

I only support abortion in the first few months before a baby is formed. Unless the mom has a life-threatening situation that will cause the death of the mom.


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


Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Strongly Agree   

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

Can't answer this question without further information sorry. I don't have a budget or anything.

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.

No Answer   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

No Answer   

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


I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

I feel it means religion should be separated from state laws.


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


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

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



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.

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.

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

Anyone should have the right to immigrate to the United States, but it must be done legally.


Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.



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

I also think NJ's property taxes are too high. Something is definitely WRONG. Even if you have a fully paid house it still feels like you're paying expensive rent. PLUS, you have to pay for garbage pick-up??? Come on? It's just too much for people. I feel New Jersey will start taxing the air sorry I PROMISE I will make you guys SAVE somehow...You have my WORD. I also want to increase investment in New Jersey...I want more companies to come to New Jersey. This will create more income for New Jersey, PLUS more employment for New Jerseyans. When BIG companies come to New Jersey everything will be better, cleaner, safer, more beautiful, and the value of your homes will go up. We MUST find a way to bring more RESPECTABLE businesses to New Jersey. LET'S CHANGE THE GAME!!

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

We can live BETTER in New Jersey. It's all in the management. I want to make New Jersey the benchmark state. I want to help make it cleaner, better, safer, cheaper, and most important MORE BEAUTIFUL. This is possible people, it's all in the RIGHT MANAGEMENT. I am NOT doing this for money or position. I'm doing this "For Love Of America". Please, I need all the Republican PATRIOTS to come out and vote for me (Republican Ahmed Basuoni) on June 8, 2021, for New Jersey's General Assembly district 12. (Please, Don't Forget). True change can ONLY happen when you are NOT doing it for money or the position. When you REALLY CARE and LOVE New Jersey & America.(God Bless America)I will also look at the transit system, roads, and bridges, but what really bothers me are the illegal drugs in New Jersey. (This MUST STOP). I HATE DRUGS so if you are a DRUG user DON'T vote for me. (You will lose) I am planning to stop drugs as much as possible in NJ. I will protect our youth and kids at ALL COSTS!!
