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?

Only if the Baby is already dead inside the womb or if the mother is in immediate danger of death and done with the internet of trying to save both lives if possible.


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?

First remove it from the general fund and make it where congress can not touch the money in it. Repay what has been taken out of it. Start offering a 401 k type plan where people just entering can do.

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

Start with reducing the 456 regulatory agencies and Foreign aid.

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

Only under work programs like what is done in the military.


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?

It is a made up term that has no basis in the constitution. What was included in Amendment 1 was that congress could not make a law for or against any religion or the way people worship within their religion.


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?

Get government out of it ( anything government gets involved with ends up costing 3-10 times as much). Then for the free market make it where all pricing is upfront and transparent. This allows price reduction due to customers being able to shop around for the best deal. One example of this is Lasix eye surgery, when it first came out it was over four thousand an eye now you can get both eyes done for less than one thousand. Also allow people to buy Insuarance from any company within the country to find a policy that fits their needs.


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?

Discredit the dangerous ideologies of Islamism, Salafism jihadism while encouraging them to explore other faiths and traditions. One of the most important things is to show them the benefits of a Christian society which embraces Love and Forgiveness as it’s core tradition.


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 who goes through the legal process and can adapt to the culture of America, like it has been done since the beginning of this country.


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.

Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior who suffered, died and rose from the grave three days later for forgiveness of my sins. I believe in the Holy Trinity and the written word of God both the Old and New Testament.


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.

Being a Pastor and my stances on the issues as listed on my Facebook and Website.

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 a strict original intent constitutionalist. I believe in conservative principals, especially for not spending one penny that will increase our deficit and reducing the deficit to strengthen our dollar. Also from being a pastor for the last three years along with having strong Jewish and Christian family history and faith, I believe in and am guided by God and his word. I will stand up for these values which represent our district. I will not compromise my principles or be silent about them. I will fight for you and District 11 always!


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?

None


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.

Neutral   

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?

First balanced budget and spending reduction bills to get there. Second is to make it where all regulations have to be voted on by congress while reducing the number government agencies. Third is legislation to ensure the congress gets back in line with the constitution.

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

No. Most Americans only are concerned about making a living and really care less about what color anyone is. It is only when we bring it to the forefront and inject emotion in that we have a problem.
