Questionnaire

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

Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Disagree

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

Disagree

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.

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.

Agree

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

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.

Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Agree

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

Neutral

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

Agree

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

Agree

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

Neutral

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.

Agree

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

Agree

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

Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

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.

Disagree

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Disagree

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

Neutral

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

Strongly Disagree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

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

God, Voters, Supreme Court, senate congress, U.S. representatives, Industry, Media Professional sports.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion should be allowed when there is no eyes, nose, ears, feet, visable on the screen. I'd say one to six weeks. A woman should have a right to choose.

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

Each generation brings change good or bad. Our Founders knew the people should govern themselves, that's why we have the Vote by the people for the people. How ever in case their is discrimination in the States of Civil Rights matters then the Federal Government must make final decision.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I accept the Lord into my heart, Through Jesus Christ. I believe in husband & wife marriage. I also believe in same sex unions, for property rights. I believe in Shopping Malls, there should be a separate bath room for people that did not have a sex change, but think they are someone they are not. I confronted pastors in my community regarding this issue.

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

Somewhat Conservative

Additional comment from candidate:

I feel it's time we select a candidate that is willing to protect the Rights and Liberties of the American People. I hope My Web-site has shown you that griffinforcongress.org there will be updates, so spread the word, what you heard. In closing I hope I have shown you how we can restore,& protect our social-security, and re-create Manufacturing, & clean Energy Jobs, that do not pollute the air and water. All our Lives we've been told who and what to Vote for and what do we have to show for it today. As a result of J.F.K. & M.L.K. death we still talking about the same things in the 21st. century Jobs,& soc-sec. No thanks, I don't need the endorsement of these elected Officials they are afraid of a problem-solver. That's why not one, of them groomed me. They want to keep the carrot hanging in their Voters face. I hope you guys help me get in the Run-Off, and host a public forum, so I can have a one on one with Isadore Hall. His accomplishments do not compare to my achievements.
