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?

Incest and the health of the mother.


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?

By cutting government spending and shrinking the government. As is there are far too many federal agencies with ballooning budgets.

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

We need a hiring freeze across all agencies, and an elimination of redundancy. Next we need to close all tax loopholes and strongly look into the possibility of a flat tax. I support the renegotiation of lopsided trade deals, privatizing certain industries and expenditures, and returning most federal responsibilities back to the states.

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

None, we are not responsible to pay for someone else's investment in themselves.


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 means the government is not allowed to encroach on the Religious Freedoms of All Americans.


Healthcare

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

Neutral   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Through a Repeal and Replace of the ACA that doesn't start the process by lying to the American People.


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?

Educate all American's on the true beliefs of radicals, support Israel in the middle east, and keep a military presence throughout the region in order to deter from large scale attacks.


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?

All that are willing to go through the legal process set forth by ICE and CBP. If they are able to pass through out stringent requirements, then they should be allowed to enter.


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.

Neutral   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian and belief that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I believe we are all created in God's image, and are imperfect and sinful. I believe that all can be saved, and I believe it is the duty of Christians worldwide to spread the gospel.


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.

Please visit my website JonHollisForCongress.com

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?

Since I was a child I've always wanted to serve, which is what led to do Missions work as well start after school programs for at risk youth. I can see no better way to serve than by serving our great country and fighting for the Constitution. There is an effort happening in this country to make all Americans more reliant on the state, and I can't see anything worse than an American being reliant on anyone but themselves. We are the greatest nation this world has ever seen, and we got that way by being Free to pursue our dreams free of Government intervention. If we want to stay that way, then we need to rely on our own abilities and not those of the government.


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?

Current gun ownership laws have gone far enough, and some need to be looked at for repeal. The Constitution is clear when it says in regards to gun ownership: "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.

Neutral   

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?

Immigration Reform, Healthcare Reform, and Infrastructure.

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

No, because as we are seeing minorities are doing better under the Trump Presidency than at any other time in History. While racism does exist, we have made significant strides as a society to fight against it at all levels.
