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?

I am Pro-Life, and personally do not believe that abortion should be allowed.


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?

Through a balanced budget amendment, and making priorities, as it relates to spending (prioritize and cut where we need to).

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

Obviously, this would require a much more comprehensive answer and time-consuming approach, as our annual deficit this year will be roughly one trillion dollars, and the national debt is some 23 trillion dollars. Having said that, one area that we should look to cut immediately is the funding to foreign governments and entities that have proven to be hostile to America, and American citizens.

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

Under no circumstances.


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?

That government should not infringe upon the religious liberties and freedom of the individual. The protection in the suggestion is to stop the government.


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 believe that we need localized medicine, not socialized medicine. The free market should play a role, and we can continue to insure protections, through legislation, for pre-existing conditions and coverage for those that are under 26 and on their parents plan, for example. Incentives can be offered to health systems that are investing their own money and doctors in local healthcare via preventative health protection programs, and we can work to drive the costs down through these approaches to healthcare reform.


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?

Continue with consistent diligence to work with, and partner with, other nations in fighting this enemy, and clean up our border issues and immigration system. Also, lead by example, as a nation, to put forth morality and love, as guiding principles of leadership.


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.

Agree   

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

Agree   

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

Those seeking a better life, and being willing to come through the front door and assimilate, and learn what it means to halve liberty and be an American citizen.


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 Christian, and a conservative, and I am thankful for God’s Covenant of Grace.


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?

Conservative   

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

Former US Border Patrol Agent, former Pearland City Council Member, and former County Court at Law Judge, where I have served this country and my community, as a conservative, and campaigned as a conservative Republican.

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 tell my children that happiness comes from that which gives you eternal purpose. You have to find what that purpose is for you, but for me it is my relationship with God and his son, as my savior. So, I would like the voters to know the same thing, and to know that if you do not have this relationship, or understanding with God, then find it, as it is more important than this survey, or any of my answers to these questions. Love you all, and I look forward to making you all proud.


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 — The focus should be placed on mental health, school safety, and personal responsibility.


Other Important Issues

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

Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Disagree   

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

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?

Balanced Budget Amendment Immigration Reform Infrastructure bill, as it relates to Hurricane and storm mitigation for CD22

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

Racism is a threat to mankind, and is evil. Any evil is a threat to the United States, domestic security, or otherwise.
