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.

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?

Abortion is murder and should never be permitted under any circumstances.


Economy

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

No Answer   

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.

No Answer   

Socialism provides a robust foundation for a stable economy.

Strongly Disagree   

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Enrich programs for small businesses and large business alike by offering tax incentives for hiring and creating jobs. I believe this will create a win win for everyone by putting more money in the pockets of people and creating a strong market.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I believe that lower taxes helps put money in the economy and in turn is great for spending and creates jobs. I also believe that we that we should boost companies that manufacture inside the United States and should create incentives for large and small companies that do business inside the U.S..


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.

Disagree   

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

I believe when health care is functioning in a competitive market, instead of government controlled it will create competition therefore having healthcare companies compete for patient memberships, in addition they will also then be required to produce better standards and therefore will in turn be good both financially and with ingenuity and they in turn should offer different levels of healthcare packages to appeal to different income levels. Although, with that being said, I do believe there should be programs for our lower income families, and elderly, and other types of expensive medical treatments. I do not have all the answers here, I am willing to learn.


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   

I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree   


Education

Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

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?

I believe that our Founders wrote the Constitution which in my opinion is the most perfect document, to protect us from a radical government and one that does not put the people of this great nation first.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a practicing devout Catholic,I believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. I believe in the Holy Trinity(the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), I believe in the forgiveness of sins. I believe the Holy Bible is the most accurate and literal living Word of Our Lord and God and that what is told in the Bible should be practiced in our daily lives. I do not believe that the Bible needs to be updated or that it is outdated. I believe the Bible is as relevant today as it always has been.


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.

I love the United States of America, I am a proud American, I come from a long line of public servants and military veterans and I believe the US Constitution to be the most perfect law of our land. I believe in Capitalism and it is what drives ingenuity and exceptionalism and the best form of free markets and true freedom. I believe in limited government. I fully support the 2nd Amendment and the right to bare arms. I believe that our citizens are safer with firearms than we are without them. And finally I love these words, "In God We Trust".

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

I studied economics, and business management in college. I have worked in sales and business development most of my life and I had a very successful sales career in the auto industry, but I believe my real world experience is what makes me the most qualified for delegate. I come from a diverse middle class upbringing, and have worked hard and overcome most challenges in my life and I have had the opportunity to see the good and bad side of how our choices can affect people around us.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you:

lahall5955@gmail.com (202)422-5955

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

I made the decision to become active and run for delegate when I first moved to Arlington over 5 years ago and I went to vote in my first primary and I discovered that there wasn't a single Republican on the ballot and I couldn't believe that Conservatives had no representation. Over the last couple of years there has been an attack of our 1st Amendment and silencing or demonizing conservative voices, we saw it by the Big Tech with Twitter and Facebook with Trump, and with teachers unions in our schools. We are better than this. I have always appreciated our democracy and respected the right for others to have different views than my own. I truly believe by us being able to have conversation and opposing views openly is what makes this country great. I chose to stand up for our citizens who have conservative values like my own but not to alienate others who may have different views. I respect every American and their freedom to choose to live the way they wish to live.


Judicial Philosophy

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

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

Disagree   

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

Neutral   


2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree
