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?

In the case of an ectopic pregnancy, an embryo that has passed and won’t release from the uterus, where the mothers life is at risk and the baby is not of a viable age.


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?

I would reduce Governor Polis’ free preschool, compulsory age is 6 in Colorado. Free preschool is basically free daycare. Many studies have shown that children should not be in a traditional school setting that young.


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?

To me, this means that people want to remove God from government. Specifically our Biblical God. Christianity is under attack and we must fight back.


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 it should be an option for people to have health insurance. We also need a free market with health insurance companies. Let them compete with each other and drive the prices down naturally for the consumer (like gas stations). A consumer should be able to choose where they seek healthcare, whether it be a particular primary care doctor, specialist, surgeon or holistic healthcare. Corporations who own hospitals and offices should not have a monopoly on the market. That monopoly decreases consumer choice. A 50 cent dose of medication should not cost the consumer $600. If grocery stores cannot price gouge, then pharmaceutical companies, doctors, and facilities should not be able to price gouge either.


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.

Agree   

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

Anyone should be allowed to immigrate as long as they do it legally!


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 believe in the Bible. The Bible is true, God breathed and the basis of how one should live his or her life. God is my guide, my provider, and protector. I am to be the city on the hill that cannot be hidden. It is my obligation as a believer to share the Word of God anywhere I go. God is the ultimate authority, anything contrary to His Word should be resisted.


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.

The government is not meant to govern the people, but the people are meant to govern the government. Next to the Bible, the Constitution is the most important document in the United States and needs to be upheld to the highest standard. Our freedoms, our rights, depend on laws aligning with the Constitution. Anything in direct conflict with it is unlawful.

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

Having worked in healthcare for nearly 6 years and then becoming a patient I have a unique perspective to offer. I also am very involved in advocacy and activism. I have spent countless hours in our capitol. I have gotten to know many legislators personally and have fallen in love with the government process. I am determined, I’m honest, and my integrity cannot be bought. I am here to help protect “the least of these”. Our children are our future. Things need to change so they have a fighting chance!

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 ended up in the political arena because God said “If not you, then who?” I believe God created me for this. Colorado and our country has gone off the rails. We need to start pulling everything back in the right direction. It’s the people who keep this country going, not the government. We are capable adults, we do not need all this overreach to survive or be successful. In fact, the overreach is hurting everyone.


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 Disagree   


2nd Amendment

Should teachers be allowed to carry guns at school?

Yes   

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

There should be no restrictions on gun ownership for law abiding citizens. Criminals are criminals for a reason, they don’t follow the law. The government shouldn’t punish those who do follow the law.


Other Important Issues

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Agree   

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) Healthcare/Medical freedom and choice 2) school choice with specific protections for homeschoolers 3) Protecting the 2nd amendment

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

No, I don’t believe it is. Unfortunately, the Democrats have caused a great divide. We, as a country, need to unite again. We are all one race, the human race. Every life is valuable!
