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?

NEVER under any circumstances! God is the giver of life. Life begins at conception. To abort any life that God created is to say God made a mistake and that is not possible.


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   

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

Nearly all of it! We need to spend on needs not wants if there is not enough money to go around. If something is not a "need" and we don't have the money to spend, it should be cut. Special interest groups should never dominate the state budget. We already have too high of taxes on the people so we should be cutting taxes and cutting spending all around.


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   

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

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?

The state should not interfere with the affairs of the church nor should the government mandate a state religion.


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

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

I believe in the privatization of health care and that government should not be in the health care business at all. Free market, and across state lines, should dictate the health care industry.


National Security

The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.

Strongly Agree   


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   

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   

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

Only those who wish to contribute to our country in a positive way and those who desire to assimilate into our society should be allowed to immigrate to America. Those who wish to come here to leach off of our country or who wish to protest America and reject the American way of life should not be allowed to come to America.


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.

Jesus Christ is my personal Saviour and I am a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. The Word of God is my final authority in all faith and practice. The Word of God will be a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path as I make decisions and if elected votes. I wish to honor God above all else 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.

All of my sermons for 26 years as the pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church of Longmont, Colorado. I have always and only voted for strong conservative politicians. I have carried petitions for strong conservative values in my church.

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

I am running as a true citizen representative. I am an outsider, similar to President Trump, and have not been corrupted by the political establishment. I have 50 years of life experience. I am a business man and have started three small businesses. I am not looking for a career change as I will continue to be the pastor of Hopewell Baptist Church. I simply want to serve my state and district with common sense, a fear of God, strong conservative values and convictions, an adherence the the United States Constitution and a desire to bring Colorado back to where she used to be years ago.

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 am a strong conservative citizen running for State House District 63. For the past 26 years I have been a Pastor, a successful businessman, and a three-time entrepreneur. While I have played an active role in politics, this is my first time to run for elected office. I have always had a passion to help people and to influence our communities for good and right. As a political outsider, I have not been corrupted by the establishment nor have I been bought by political activists. My position has been made very clear for 26 years. I have not bounced around the political spectrum. I have been a lifelong conservative republican, and my message has not changed or wavered. As a pastor and community leader, I know the people; I know their values; I know their concerns. I will be a true representative of the people, not a representative of special interest groups or political activists. It is time for a New Choice for Colorado! I am a write-in candidate. Write me in to vote for me!


Judicial Philosophy

I support the use of Sharia law as a basis for legislation and judicial decisions in the United States.

Strongly Disagree   


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

None. The answer to gun violence is NOT to make it harder on law abiding citizens to protect themselves; but rather, the exact opposite! We need to make it easier and more convenient for the law-abiding citizens to protect themselves and their families against those who have no respect for the rule of law. That is why I someday hope to get legislation passed that will make Colorado a constitutional carry state! We have no other rights, if we cannot defend them.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

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?

1. Defending the life of the unborn. 2. Constitutional carry state. 3. Supporting the Oil and Gas industry.

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

No. I believe that all people should be treated the same regardless of skin color or race. We should be a nation of laws. It is wrong to disregard the laws of our nation simply because of the plights of a certain race of people. We should never show favoritism to any race. Everyone should live on their own merit and abilities regardless of race. We should love all peoples but nobody should be allowed into our country who is a threat to our national security.
