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.

Strongly Disagree

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

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.

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

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

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

MANKIND'S INTENSE DESIRE FOR POWER AND SELF-CENTEREDNESS

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I AM A STRONG BELIEVER IN JESUS CHRIST AND THE POWER OF GOD'S WORD OVER ALL MAN-MADE INSTITUTIONS. I HOLD TRADITIONAL VALUES REGARDING OUR GOD-GIVEN ROLES AND OUR PURPOSE IN LIFE.

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 earned the MOST CONSERVATIVE title for several years while in the state legislature; this was based on my conservative voting record. As a 13-year legislator, I never once voted for tax increase, I was A+ rated by the NRA, and I was legislator of the year for RTL.
