Strongly Agree

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


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.


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.


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

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a good standing member of the Methodist Church and have dedicated my life to service to others. My home was given to the community as we opened it as a Foster Adoptive home for over 15 years. We adopted, worked with sexual abused, drug and other conditions. I have set an example to those that I would serve. I love educating the values of my family to all that we come in contact with and in doing so set and example worth following. I have sent an E mail with a copy of my book about our kids. Please share it with others.
