Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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

The U.S. military should wait for militant Islamic groups to directly threaten our national security on our shores, rather than eradicate them now wherever they may be worldwide.

Disagree

The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.

Strongly Agree

I support legislation such as the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) that would prohibit discrimination against individuals, organizations and small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

Strongly Agree

The federal government should establish Common Core as a nationwide academic standard for high school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

I oppose the resettlement of Syrian refugees into the U.S. without proper vetting.

Strongly Agree

Current regulations on domestic oil exploration and drilling are more restrictive than are necessary.

Strongly Agree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

Strongly Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

More restrictive gun control laws are needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Strongly Disagree

Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self-interest into the most productive economic system there is.

Strongly Agree

Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions until they are economically feasible.

Strongly Disagree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.

Strongly Agree

Planned Parenthood should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Strongly Disagree

Islamic law (Sharia) does not pose a threat to the United States and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God Constitution Voters Congress Supreme Court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe law should be clearly and narrowly written to allow the doctor and patient to make a decision if and only if the life of the mother and child are in jeopardy and this would be the only available course of action. I am not open to this exception if it is so broadly constructed as to allow a path to continuing the atrocity of abortion in this country.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

I believe that mankind has a sin nature- one that is behind the truth of the saying "power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Without carefully defined, separate, and limited powers, a government of men and women- all born with this nature- will quickly become oppressive and a means of exercising evil.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Everything I do and all that I am is rooted in my belief in a sovereign and good God, the perfect gift of His Son made necessary by my inability to ever be good enough on my own, and the authority of His Scripture. My worldview informs my belief that all life is precious and begins at conception, that God intends marriage to be between one man and one woman, and that power left unchecked will result in authoritarian rule. I'm an unashamed Christian, and, because of my faith, I am a proud and relentless advocate for life, marriage, limited government, personal responsibility, and the right to rise. Scripture also teaches that there is good and there is evil in this world, and that it is our responsibility to call evil for what it is and to be soldiers for Christ in this world.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Very Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I am a proud military wife who has lived on 3 continents-I’ve watched my husband go off to war. I understand military families and what they go through both on active duty and after retiring. I have been advocating that national defense cannot just be a spending priority but THE spending priority. We must be strong to fight those who hate us, our faith, and our way of life and to keep our people safe.

Additional comment from candidate:

Those whose passion is seeking the glory of God, fighting for His truth, and standing for the cause of Christ will find a friend in me. I've gone toe to toe with the Obama Administration, the IRS, and even members of my own Party (including my opponent). I will not back away from the fight, and I will not shrink to the background in these desperate times. We need strong, conservative leaders of faith in Congress, and I am humbled to answer the call. I would appreciate the support of all who read this survey within my district, the prayers of all Christians eager to see this nation returned to what our Founders intended, and the financial support of all who feel called to contribute. We are engaged in a race that Politico has ranked the #3 primary in the country, and I ask all those who share our worldview to engage in this fight.
