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?

Abortion should never be allowed in the United States or anywhere in the world. It is a crime against humanity and God, the giver of life.


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?

Social Security funds should have never be used to do anything but their intended purpose for American Citizens which entrusted such funds for safe-keeping. Misappropriation and Misuse are serious offenses to a conservative and should be corrected and redeemed immediately.

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

Crooked Subsidies that abuse the taxpayer. This does not apply to noble efforts such as the recent farming subsidies which were desperately needed. Crooked Aid that has no measurable impact Medicare fraud

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

The real issue is the inflated costs of secondary education which is not addressed by paying off debt. The solution is returning the American education system to its roots of serving the children of our nation rather than profiteering to build university hedge funds that students fund with institutional debt.


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 was meant to protect the citizens of our nation from a government-run church that would ultimately limit the freedoms earned by the founding fathers. However, I do believe that there are separate responsibilities and roles of the Church and State wherein the government established peace through strength and the church brings peace through love. No one wants pastors executing criminals or judges forgiving crime. For instance, in a robbery, The government is far better at apprehending the criminal and the church is far better at caring for the victims. Unfortunately, the godless left deny the existence of God and the value of the church therefor they place all burdens of benevolence on the Government which is unsuited for such a task and it leads to abuse or governmental overreach.


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?

The cost of healthcare coverage is solely tied to the cost of health care provision. We must Lower the cost of healthcare so that we can lower the cost of healthcare coverage without violating the free market. The first hurdle is the insane prescription drug costs and a broken medical billing system with insurance agencies who are clearly FOR-PROFIT. The motivations of the doctors and nurses are noble yet the motivation of the corporations have not been. Rather than focus on health and healing, they have focused on treatments and cash-flow for decades. Providers are forced to inflate prices based on harsh negotiated discounts mandated from insurance companies which increases costs and deductibles to innocent citizens who simply desire reasonable healthcare.


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?

We must first distinguish hatred from justice so that justice can prevail without blemish. Any radical person of any motivation that seeks to intimidate, harm, or impede another person's right to life and liberty should suffer the full extent of the American Justice System. In addition, the Justice System should be able to apprehend and punish an offender with reasonable evidence prior to any act of unfortunate terror.


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.

Neutral   

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

Immigration numbers should be driven by fundamentals rather than feelings and the system should ensure American citizenship which is different than convenient consumerism.


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 raised by very loving pastors in the Written word of God. I was taught by the written word of God to follow the Spoken word of God and listen to Him everyday as He leads my thoughts and guides my steps.
