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 a doctor determines the life of the mother is at risk.


Economy

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

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?

By making it illegal for any government agency to use those funds for anything other than retirement benefits.

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

Welfare. Foreign aid. Over regulation.

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

Never. It's a part of being an adult.


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?

As our founders stated so clearly, this is to prevent the government from restricting the open and free practice of one's chosen faith.


Healthcare

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

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?

Competition. When in a free enterprise scenario,the most innovative and best performing entity will always rise to the top. The healthcare industry will thrive and innovate through the same principles. As a cancer survivor,I learned very well how our system is the best in the world and in need of improvement at the same time.Promoting healthy lifestyles while not enabling self destructive behavior is a key component. Personal responsibility while helping the most vulnerable and weak among us is possible, but only when we take responsibility for our own health.


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?

Provide the necessary equipment and expertise to our allies needed to stop that ideology at it's source. Eliminate any chance of entry into our country any individual who has a history of those radical beliefs and who cannot embrace and conform to the American culture and our Judeo/Christian values.


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?

Any individual who will swear an allegiance to the Constitution Who brings a skill set beneficial to the United States Anyone who is willing to conform to the American culture and will not be receiving any government financial assistance whatsoever


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 am a born again follower of Jesus Christ and a child of God.


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.

All my social media posts and my term as Mayor for the City of Anson,Texas will attest to my conservative credentials.

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?

There is literally nothing we cannot achieve as a united country.As a father of three young men, I got into this race out of concern for their future and seeing the daily assault on our culture made it impossible to not get involved.The career politicians and the self appointed ruling class have created this scenario with no incentive to remedy the obvious injustices inflicted on working people.Time is finite.We give our time to work, and hopefully live a happy life and rest in the security that our children will be able to do the same. When the heavy yolk of over taxation,over regulation and now the daily attack upon all the traditions and moral boundaries that keep the hand of God over this country become impossible to ignore, we must step into the arena fight the good fight. If history has taught us anything,it's that when we are in a righteous fight we cannot be defeated.A fair,honest,moral,equal and just country is as righteous a fight as there ever was or will be.


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?

Anyone convicted of a violent crime,domestic violence or mentally ill should not be allowed to acquire a firearm.


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?

Term limits Voter ID Border wall funding

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

Any exclusion to any American based on the color of their skin should never be tolerated. There is no threat to domestic security when we are all seen as equals just as God sees us.We are all equally flawed and equally capable of outstanding achievements. Our culture,our history and our future greatness is only possible when we see each other as Americans. Equals in every aspect.
