Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Right to Life

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

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly Agree   

I support the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which requires health care providers to provide life-saving treatment for infants who survive an attempted abortion.

Strongly Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

When the life of the mother is at risk.


Economy

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

Strongly Agree   

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

I believe that the Social Security fund should be off limits and untouched for any other purpose than what it was established for. I would take it a step further and propose legislation that would eliminate property taxes for anyone eligible for Social Security.

What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?

There are several agencies that need to be revamped or eliminated, our government is far too bloated and too much wasted. We need to cut minimize and get back to limited government.

Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?

No circumstance.


Religious Liberty

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.

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly Agree   

I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.

Yes   

What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?

I personally don’t believe in a separation and feel that this term has been pulled out of context. Religious freedom should not be suppressed.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Agree   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was opened to candidate preview, candidate notified iVoterGuide that his previous answer was incorrect and gave this statement: "I am not sure how the survey states I would be against private. I believe that all healthcare should be privatized. We are a free market and should allow insurance to be competitive. The best example of single payer government run insurance is the Veterans Affairs and it is a mess and should be shut down and vets should be given FEDVIP insurance, the same as Congress."

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

I believe an open competitive market for health insurance is the way forward. Single payer systems are a failure and anything the government gets involved with is made more expensive and the insured suffers the most. The VA is the best example of a failed single payer government provided system that had failed out Veterans.


National Security

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree   

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

Continue the current strength of our military and intelligence communities to target and eliminate any threats to our national security.


Immigration

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   

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

State and federal funds should be denied to any public or private entity, including but not limited to sanctuary cities, that are not in compliance with immigration laws.

Strongly Agree   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?

Anyone legally eligible to apply for citizenship should be allowed. We have a process and it should be followed. There should be immigration reform and we need to update and speed up the process for qualified applicants.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Disagree   


Values

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.

Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

No Answer   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I was born and raised as a Christian. I served at a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem and have visited the holy land many times. I believe in strong support for Israel and Christian Values.


Qualifications

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?

Very Conservative   

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

(Did not answer)

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.

No

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

I am seeking office after surviving a helicopter crash while deployed with the US military. I have been given a second chance at life and I cannot stand by while these career politicians destroy our Country while getting wealthy off the sacrifices of the middle class. There was an active deep state coup attempt of our presidency and our Congress needs to support the President.


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

There should be none. The second amendment isn’t negotiable.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

No Answer   

iVoterGuide Note:  After the voter guide was opened to candidate preview, candidate notified iVoterGuide that his previous answer was incorrect and gave this statement: "I believe Marijuana should be de-scheduled in the the CSA (controlled substance act) and be moved from Schedule 1 (no medical use) to Schedule 3 (medical use). This would allow doctors to determine the correct usage and needs for each patient for things such as epilepsy, cancer, PTSD and chronic pain."

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Disagree   

In priority order, what three areas of legislation do you propose to author or sponsor if elected?

Term limits for all Congressman and Senators would be priority #1. This would be closely followed by a Veterans Protection Act that would ensure our nations Veterans and taken care of and fully funded.

Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?

No. Racism is an issue but I do not see it being a threat to national security.
