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   

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 Disagree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe that people should practice safe Sex, if they are to get pregnant and choose not to keep the baby, there are many Families that would love an opportunity to have and raise that Baby.


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   

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   

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

I would reduce the welfare state that NJ has become.


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.

Strongly 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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly 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?

Keep religion out of State affairs


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?

I would not, I was raised to go to work and find a position that provides adequate healthcare through private companies that negotiate with insurance companies who provide healthcare. It is not the Governments job to support all Americans. Lace up your boot straps and get to work!


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   

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   

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

This Country was build on the backs of immigrants. We welcome all, anyone wanting to come to America is welcome. All we ask is that they come here legally and assimilate to our society. Don’t come here looking to bring with you the type society you ran from. The reason most come here is because they know they have a better opportunity to grow and be successful. God Bless America. Land of the free because of the brave.


Values

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

Strongly Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.


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.

We should have a President whom is committed to protecting our Boarders and dealing strongly with Foreign affairs. As to Social issues, “we the People” should have the right to choose through Charities what social issues need to be covered NOT the Government.

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

I have seen first hand how our Government wants to become a Socialist experiment. We need less Government and more of the people stepping up to the plate to fix our own issues.

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

NO

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

I will always fight for the People and our great Constitution!


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

no one wants a maniac getting a Firearm. So if you have a Violent history, that would be the only time I could see someone not being able to attain a Firearm. All legal Citizens without a “Violent” criminal history should be allowed through our 2nd Amendment to fully carry a Firearm to protect themselves, Families or anyone in need of help. The right to keep and bear arms is not negotiable!


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

1-No more Unnecessary Taxes on the People including Gas, Property tax, highway Tolls and bridges 2-More senior property tax breaks 3-No more special treatment and protection for illegals

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

This is how our Government divides “We the People” I’m not saying that Racism does not exist, however we the American People have come a long way and are still working on these issues. No one in my opinion is born a Racist.
