Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
I am Pro-Life, and personally do not believe that abortion should be allowed.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
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.
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
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.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
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.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
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.
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.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be abolished.
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.
Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
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.
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a Christian, and a conservative, and I am thankful for God’s Covenant of Grace.

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.
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
