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.

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.

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

God Constitution Congress Supreme Court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I am 100% committed to pro life. I am a father with four children. I support adoption for unwanted babies.

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

To prevent tyranny. We fought a king for our freedom and set specific safeguards in place

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian. There is good and evil in this world. Mankind has the option to choose a side and work towards one or the other. God gives us his Word to live by - and we has humans, and sinners do our very best to live by that Word on a daily basis and to ensure that our children do as well.

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 have spend my adult life in both the military and law enforcement. I have seen firsthand the weakness of a nation when our military is weak. I have seen crime rise when he fail to uphold the law. I have seen children and adults go down a dark path because of progressive values. I will always fight for what's right - regardless of consequence.
