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.

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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion should be allowed when the woman and her physician understand that her health or her life are in great danger by the pregnancy or birth process.

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

Mankind's nature evolved Providentially. By way of this Providential evolution, the Constitution is the culmination of the "Age of Enlightenment." Prominent elements of the "Age of Enlightenment" significant to the question include the "The Bloodless Revolution" and "Areopagitica." The founders' ill relationship with the crown provided the need and winning the war provided the opportunity to define, separate and limit according to the evolution of thought in the Enlightenment.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

The Bible is the Word of God. Jesus is God manifest. Salvation is the receiving, by way of repentance, Jesus' death as the redeeming sacrifice. Salvation is demonstrated through a life of sanctification.

Very Conservative

Additional comment from candidate:

The Federal Reserve needs to be nationalized. Agenda 21 needs to be condemned. "Smart Growth" and ICLEI are Agenda 21. Common Core and The Affordable Care Act exist for the purpose of eliminating the right to the Freedom of self-determination. Regarding the Second Amendment, "Those who hammer their swords into plowshares will work for those who do not." The neoconservative movement is an extension of Trotsky's "Fourth International." I strongly promote wave energy conversion and desalinization. I strongly condemn nuclear power. The Federal Government should not facilitate the oil industry. The evil of geoengineering should be exposed. Federal and State governments are the geoengineering culprits. They work for us? I do not oppose gay marriage. Unless there is a constitutional amendment, gay marriage should be governed by the States. I am running for Congress to preserve the integrity of the Bill of Rights. Join the Battle for Freedom. Study--Communicate--Vote!
