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 Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Health of the mother


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.

Strongly Agree   

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Neutral   

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

Without a complete review of the spending it is not possible to state "this should be cut". I feel there is waste in all phases of government.


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?

The Church does not run this country and should be protected. Religious beliefs must be protected but not allowed to defy our laws.


Healthcare

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

Disagree   

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

Private insurance that can be purchased across state lines that will increase competition allowing lower prices bringing more affordable insurance to more people.


National Security

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

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?

All should be allowed to immigrate following immigration laws.


Values

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

Strongly Agree

Born again Christian. There is one race, the human race
