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.

No Answer   

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

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.

No Answer   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Rape, incest


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   

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

Foreign entanglements


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   

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.

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?

It means that the government must remain neutral when it comes to religion. Fortunately the US Constitution is capable of supporting any language, any religion.

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

I would promote individual liberty by encouraging healthy living habits and charitable giving.

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.

No Answer   

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.

Agree   

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

Anyone should be able to immigrate. The issue comes with the welfare and taking better care of immigrants than citizens.


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.

Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in a higher power. We are all spiritual beings, together, on a journey.
