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.

Agree   

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I do not recognize any.


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?

We need to begin by ceasing all misappropriations. We should place the responsibility back into the hands of the individuals. The government has proven to fall short in fiduciary responsibility roles.

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

Every budget item needs to be processed through a litmus test of Constitutionality, who is benefiting, who is it unduly costing, is it actually accomplishing what it was designed for, is it growing/diminishing individual liberties, and is it growing or decreasing the government. Everything not passing the test should be eliminated.

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

Never.


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?

There is not to be a government-enforced national religion. This phrase has so maligned our founding fathers intents.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

First, identify corruption address it with applicable laws. Promote free enterprise by removing government intervention. Increase the limits on Health Savings Plans/rates that are currently set at $7,100 for a family and well below market needs.


National Security

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

Agree   

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

President Trump is showing leadership in calling evil, evil and dealing with it accordingly for the protection and well being of our nation. We honestly have an education issue. There has been a very clear agenda in America for some time to undermine and eliminate the reality of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and as a result there is a desensitizing to real threats. People need to be educated to the reality of the globalist-socialist agenda and the Islamic jihad. We only have to study Europe and see the negative impacts of advancing Islam.


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.

Neutral   

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

Those that will follow the legal processes. Note: As per question 22 above, my reason for a neutral status at this time is a need for clarity on the protection of privacy rights of American citizens.


Education

Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree   


Values

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

Strongly Agree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

In accordance with our founding fathers in The Declaration of Independence, I recognize God as God of natural laws, Giver of all rights, Great Judge of the world and Sovereign God of all. We are not to lean to our own understanding but we are to acknowledge CHRIST in everything, and He will direct our paths. Until we restore our nation to these truths we will continue to disintegrate.


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.

jamieberryhillforcongress.com Mission messiah television Mission Messiah.org israeltvnetwork.tv

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?

Our founding fathers, with boldness and great wisdom from above, were willing to stake their lives, families, honor and assets to escape tyranny, with the hope of a nation conceived in liberty, so that individuals could attain unto their inherent greatness. We must stand upon these truths, bringing them back into our educational system and reignite the love for this nation and its design for freedom!!! BE FREE * BE GREAT


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 shall be no infringement upon gun rights.


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.

Strongly Disagree   

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

Strongly Disagree   

The Electoral College should be abolished.

Strongly Disagree   

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

My heart is not to write more legislation but to eradicate legislation that has undermined our Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights. We do need term limits to begin cleaning house and keep it clean. If our country is going to see better days, we have to cease murdering our children.

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

It is not a threat, it is a manufactured ideology for the purpose of dividing our “One Nation Under God.” Every life is precious and deserves the freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness.
