No Answer

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion is a women's right. I do not agree with using public tax dollars for funding.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

We must do a better job with vetting and stop chain immigration. The President needs to stop using the word radical Islamic terrorism.

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

The framers of the Constitution had one primary reason, and that was to prevent the majority from ruling with an iron fist. The goal was to eliminate greed, power, and discrimination.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?


Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

I believe in same-sex partners having the same rights as heterosexuals, but I differ with changing the foundation of marriage.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Politicians should use the same model that physicians use to treat their patients, as a pattern for our health care system. We must first come up with a diagnosis, examine the problem, and come up with a plan to fix the issue. Obama Care is not the problem in our health care system. Below are a few issues. 1. Employer Sponsered Health Insurance-Should not be tax-exempt. 2. The Health Care System is designed to provide unnecessary health services. For instance, vast testing, which leads to financial waste. 3. Medicaid- Excessive Spending

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The Government role is to maintain the stability of the markets and the overall economy. It must foster long-term economic growth and economic stability including keeping unemployment and inflation low.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

I prefer a flat tax bill over the bill that just passed under President Trump's Administration.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

The solution for unemployment is for Government to create jobs. There are several ways economist disagree on what policies work. I would take a close look at other countries and models.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I would increase the retirement age to 68. Which will allow a young worker to take the 6.2 % matching payroll tax by the employer and invest it in a financial institution of their choice? In return, one would be able to withdraw his/her private investments tax-free at age 65. This would stabilize the system for the future, and give workers a fair shot at securing their retirement years.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

96-Hrs toward B.A. Business 25-Yrs Professional Business Management Community Service (mentoring teenagers, assisting senior citizens, political outreach work).
