Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
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.
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.
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.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
Additional regulations are needed to prevent climate change.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.
Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

It is OK for Congress to exempt itself from compliance with laws applicable to all citizens.
I support the death penalty.
Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.
The United States should protect its sovereignty from the United Nations.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
I voted in these primaries and general elections:
2012 General Election, 2014 General Election, 2016 General Election
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
Not applicable. I am not a Supreme Court Justice. This is a very polarizing issue that does nothing but impede productivity. Let's focus on things we can change and get something accomplished.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?
Send them home. Oh, I guess that wouldn't work....... because most of them are Americans. Maybe we should focus on the other greater threats facing our Nation first (like white supremacists).
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Greed. "Man" always wants more. Without defined, separated and limited powers, spelled out, a power grab would be inevitable.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
Loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, personal courage. Qualities I strive and pray for.

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
I am a member of the South Carolina American Party (AmericanPartySC.com)
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
I have more than adequate and affordable health insurance. Amazingly, it's a result of the ACA (Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare). I paid the penalty the first year, without even investigating what was available and for how much. Just like for your car, if you want affordable insurance you need as many people as you can get, from all risk groups. Which means people need to agree on the importance of insurance to begin with.
What role should government play in boosting the economy?
Like many other things, they should stay out of it.
What changes should be made to the tax code?
Here's that greed question raising it's evil head again. The typical member of Congress is a millionaire. Let's get some everyday Americans in Congress to change the tax code so it benefits everyday Americans.
What is the best way to bring down unemployment?
I don't think it can get much lower!
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
We need to do something! Like most problems facing America today, there aren't a lack of solutions, there is a lack of ACTION. If it's not influence and lobbying, it's political gridlock. There are many solutions that can increase the life of Social Security benefits, we just need someone willing to make the hard decisions and value people over politics.
What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?
I LOVE this Country.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
Everyone complains about the two-party system, but when they have a choice, they don't want to "waste" their vote. If you think we have too many career politicians, if you think the system is corrupt, if you feel that no one in Washington cares about you, then you need a different Party, a different candidate.
