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 when a mother's life 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?

Jobs... Policies that ensure more job creation. Not voting for budgets that aren't paid for. Stopping excessive spending that leads to the raiding of social security benefits.

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

Welfare, getting the feds OUT of education - not just k-12 but Colleges and universities as well. Ending so-called "special programs" that the government has no business engaging in. Sending issues like healthcare back to the states. Getting the feds out of healthcare. etc...

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

None. You wanted that higher education. You pay for it. Get the feds out of the student loan business.


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 means nothing. It appears nowhere in the constitution.


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?

I wouldn't. That is NOT the federal government's job. That is for businesses, markets and ultimately the consumers to decide.


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?

Shoot them where they stand. Eliminate the threat wherever it may be.


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?

Those who are willing to contribute to our society. Those who will be able to take care of themselves. Those who do not have criminal records from their country of origin. Those willing to assimilate to our way of life.


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.

I was born and raised in the church. As a child attended church what would seem like, every day of my life. As an adult, I rarely attend church but my faith is still intact. Christianity is not just a belief for me but a way of life. I try every day to live by the teachings of the bible. To love one another. Treat everyone as you would want to be treated and so on. If I'm not listening to politics on the radio, I am listening to gospel music. My faith in God and belief in his Son is not based on how often I go to church. But, how I keep to his word.


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.

Look no further than posts on my social media. My youtube. My twitter if they ever unsuspend it. I have videos everywhere.

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

I have been convicted of a felony but nothing at all to do with sexual misconduct. My felonies happened when I was younger. I was a thief. I stole. And apparently wasn't too good at it. after so many misdemeanor's they are enhanced to a felony. But it isn't all bad. Because being in jail is what brought me to conservatism and being a Republican listening to Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh. People make mistakes. I certainly made mine. I am trying to make up for them now.

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

I am not your typical Republican. I don't have an educational background, my education stopped at high school. I don't come from a privileged background of a wealthy family. My family was poor my whole life. From living in 2 homeless shelters as a child to my mom and stepdad then buying a small 3 bedroom house on the eastside of Wichita falls. I don't have much. All I have, are my beliefs in God and conservatism. I only ask that I am given a chance at proving myself in wanting to show people that it doesn't take only businessmen and polished, church-going, military vets, etc to run things in Washington. As you see those types have led to ridiculous spending, endless investigations, no real conservative reforms on any issues we care about and so on. Please just give me a shot at 2 years at proving myself. And if after that 2 years I have not been that fighter you expected, I will give it up. I will not seek re-election. I know what it is I stand for, I will fight for what I stand for.


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! Guns don't kill people. Crazy, irresponsible people looking to do harm, kill people. Criminals don't follow laws. I know, I was one. By definition, they don't follow law. Restrictions only restrict the law-abiding citizen.


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.

Agree   

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?

Reforming welfare (drastically) A full and complete unpenetrable border wall. The kind asked for in the first place Ending illegal immigration, to include harsher punishments for border crossers, visa overstayers, and only businesses who receive some type of federal funding will be required to participate in and prove that they are in fact using E-verify

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

No. A figment of the left's imagination to scare and intimidate minority voters into supporting their movements, causes and voting for them and against anybody that doesn't support them.
