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

No Answer

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

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.


Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.


It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has a livable income.

Strongly Disagree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health insurance.

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.


More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

No Answer

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

The United States should help defend Israel from attack by its enemies.

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.


Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2010 General Election, 2010 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2012 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe in a woman's right to chose.

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

We should have a massive, low cost, high tech approach. I believe surveillance in terrorist prone countries through drones of all kinds would be most effective. I also believe that we need to bring 2 way communication to these countries so that these people can see how others live in the world, and can alert us of terrorist activity such as Boko Haram kidnapping girls in 2014. We also need to be pro-active instead of re-active when it comes to terrorism. Example when Isil invaded Iraq in 2014 and was taking over U.S. military hardware giving to the Iraq army we should of intervened early saving thousands of lives. Also Syria, If we intervened early we could of saved thousands of lives and millions from leaving their homes and causing a huge immigration problem in Europe and of course the massive destruction to Syrian towns and cities. Now we are faced with a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions that could of been avoided with early intervention.

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

We do not like oppression, and another monarchy would not stand.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in Christianity. I believe that we should treat others the way we would want to be treated.

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.

Our Debt is out of control and we need to start finding ways to bring it down, but sometimes it is important to spend money in order to start that process. For instance the Opioid Epidemic is costing us 100 billion dollars nation wide this year alone, and 1/2 of all major crime is attributed from this epidemic. If we spend money now on a fix for this problem we can save more money in the long run. Another example is the border wall. If we spend money to build the wall now we can drastically reduce money spent on other programs for border security and illegal immigration.

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

I would start from scratch again. This time taking input from the tech sectors (such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft), Universities, colleges. economist, Doctors, nurses and any experts in the field of health care to build health care systems with different trials first to be done on smart computers such as IBM's Watson. We also need the tech companies to help us build software that would securely communicate among all the entities efficiently. It is possible that single payer healthcare is the best solution. This would cut out the middle man theoretically savings billions of dollars. However I certainly do not trust the government either. This is why I believe that tech companies and smart computing is part of the key. About 25% of our total health care cost is administration cost where as other countries spend about 1/2 as much.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Planning for the future in case of a economic down turn so that homelessness does not spike. Infrastructure spending. Energy projects including tax credits for further solar installations. Research and development for clean energy such as hydrogen and Photo voltaic. Spending on our electric grid.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Interest rates on school loans should be no higher than 2%. Tax credits should be made permanent for installing Solar energy.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Have a plan for future infrastructure and other projects that would employ many people and shovel ready especially at times of recession. Free online training and higher education. Better communication between the government and citizens on what job sectors are looking for help and what training is available.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I would collect input from the tech sectors (such as Amazon, Google and Microsoft), Universities, colleges. economist, and any experts in this field to build systems that can be tested on smart computers such as IBM's Watson. We also need the tech companies to help us build software that would securely implement and communicate among all the entities efficiently.

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

I am a good mechanic which allows me identify the problems, find a solution and implement the actions efficiently. I also have to work with other trades and agencies which have their own agendas, and responsible compromises must be met in order to achieve a common goal. The ability to listen and research issues is very important and a key to finding solutions to complex problems.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you: 603-203-0550

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I believe the main issues are the Opioid Epidemic which I believe can fixed with a 1 year group rehab along with counseling specialty addiction treatment. 2.) A secure and red flag law for gun owners 3.) Immigration. Build that wall. This way families will not be separated, gangs and drugs will not enter our country from our southern neighbors who do not respect our sovereign border, and we can control our immigration and not allow hundreds of thousands to pour into our country illegally.
