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.

No Answer

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion should be allowed as long as the brain of the fetus has not developed. Without a brain the cells can not register pain.

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

The United States has no business eradicating the radical religious threats within our own borders.

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

The oppression of the British monarchy caused the Founders to require that individual liberty be protected at all costs. They had seen how easily a single leader could be corrupted and needed to ensure that no one branch of government is able to enact such tyranny among the population again.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I practice Druidism. It is a branch of Paganism. I worship Mother Earth and Father Sun as well as the demi-gods that oversee many of the elements. Part of my religious practice is going on nature walks as well as camping.

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?

Moderate

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

You can find all of my policy stances on my Facebook page.

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

I would like to promote fair and transparent insurance practices, I would also like to see that any standard check ups are fair and available on the free market without the need for insurance. Insurance should only be needed for the unexpected and uncommon, such as cancer and autoimmune diseases. For things like asthma devices it would be more cost effective to make those a base fair market value. You should not be able to profit over suffering because your company is the only one with the treatment.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

None. The economy does best when left alone.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

Eliminate it.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Remove regulations. Allow people to be able to start a business without needing to spend their whole budget on government inspections and the like. This will allow them to create jobs and the free market will continue to work from there.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I wouldn't. The only way to guarantee your retirement is if you plan for it yourself. I would like to make it so that Social Security is replaced by private financial planners of the individuals choosing and then that individual can choose to just have the amount that they choose withheld into a private retirement fund.

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

I am not from a political family, I am principled and will never waver in the fight for an understand and compassionate society that allows for people to live truly free and peaceful lives.
