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?

Under no circumstances should the life of an innocent unborn child be taken away in such a vicious and immoral process such as abortion.


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?

I would to actually get rid of social security as it has been recognized as a failed program that many young people are currently paying into, and will never likely recieve when they become eligible to start benefiting from paying in. For those who have already began paying in, I will ensure they are grandfathered in so they are not cheated out of what the government took from their paychecks.

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

I will cut spending by cutting all funding to Planned Parenthood, cutting funding to Housing and Urban Development, and by cutting funding to states and cities who refuse to comply with federal law. Furthermore, it will be necessary to look over the budget plans for every federal department and find unnecessary spending to cut wherever possible. For example, a few years ago the Air Force spent over $100,000 on a cup a. Yes, a cup. In no way is that a justifiable use of taxpayer money.

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

Under no circumstances. When elected I will propose legislation that will offer tax credits to those making payments towards their student loan debt. for every dollar they spend paying off their debt, we will allow a $1.5 tax credit to help incentivize paying off their debt in a timely manner, without being a burden on taxpayers.


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.

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?

Separation of church and state is a phrase that proposes that the government recognizes freedom of religion, but many also wrongly think it also means that the government is free from religion, which it is not. As a Christian, this means to me that I can still be a representative of my faith inside the government and can push for legislation that represents my faiths morality, but the government cannot declare a state-sponsored religion that everyone must follow.


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 would promote it by supporting inicitives that incentivize the use of the free market. The cost can be driven down by forcing hospitals and other medical institutions to be transparent with their prices.


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?

First, we need to secure our borders and thoroughly vet each person we allow into this country. Overseas we need to strategically engage terrorists to ensure they lack the infrastructure to attack us at home.


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.

Agree   

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

Anyone who wants to come to America who shares our Western values, loves capitalism and can contribute to our economy in a positive way.


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.

Agree   

I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.

Disagree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a strong Christian devoted to my saver Jesus Christ. I have been devoted to the Lord ever since I was six years old and I hope to spread the name of Jesus all throughout the world. I have been lead by the Lord to do many things like learn Arabic and running for U.S. Congress and I just pray His will be done in my life.


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.

https://www.feganforcongress.com/platform

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 believe that I am the best candidate for this district because as a young Conservative millennial, I am the most capable to reach young people who are constantly falling for the false promises of socialism and communism. I love the older generations and the values they have instilled in me, but the honest truth is many young people typically only listen to their peers and seldom their parents advice, so it will require someone like myself in congress to reason with, relate to and understand the young voters who are so ill-informed on the issues of this country. By winning them over to our side, the Republican party stands a better chance of maintaining control and protecting our constitutional republic for many years to come.


Criminal Justice

Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

Agree   


2nd Amendment

What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?

We do not need any more restrictions on gun ownership. The right to bear arms shall not be infringed.


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.

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?

Protection of the unborn, immigration/border security, physical responsibility

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

Racism is a threat and it likely always will be to some extent, but as of right now, I do not think it is playing much of a role in our society as some in the media make it out to be.
