Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.
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.
Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
Before a heartbeat is detected, in the case of rape or if the mother's life is in mortal danger.

Free enterprise and the right to private property are essential elements of a productive economic system.
How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?
Make sure that our country is not broke and in debt to a point where we cannot meet our obligations.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
Foreign aid. Department of Education.
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
Under no circumstance. Student loans are an obligation taken on by the student and are nobody else's responsibility to pay for. I would not be opposed to exploring relief in the form of more favorable interest rates, but loan forgiveness is a non-starter.
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.
Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.
I promise to protect the freedom of Christians to share the Gospel and to practice Biblical principles.
What does "separation of church and state" mean to you?
There shall be no establishment of a religion made by the government. The government should not engage in restricting the religious beliefs and rights of the people guaranteed under our constitution.
It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance.
I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.
How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
I assume that "coverage" means "insurance". This is a private matter between a patient, the doctor and an insurance company if there is one. I do not want the government involved in health insurance. I am a victim of Obamacare and I do not have health insurance as a result. I belong to a christian health care ministry where we share our medical bills. It has worked fine for me.
The best way to maintain peace is through a strong military.
What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.
Who should be allowed to immigrate to the U.S. and under what circumstances?
Let the American people decide who should be allowed to immigrate to our country based on what our needs are as a country, not based on what their needs are as immigrants. They must do it legally. Immigrants should not place a burden on taxpayers by receiving taxpayer funded benefits.
Taxpayer-funded public education should be guaranteed through college.
Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which is necessary for our system of limited government.
I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a christian.
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?
Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
Have you ever been convicted of a felony or been penalized for sexual misconduct? If so, please explain.
Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
Too much power and money is concentrated in Washington DC. I want to return it to the states. The size and scope of the federal government must be scaled back. What the government gives to one man he must first take away from another. There is no free lunch in America. I want the SCOTUS to adhere to a strict interpretation of the US Constitution. I will support President Trump's America First agenda.
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.

The ones we have now. We don't need new ones.

Eliminate green card lottery, birthright citizenship and revoke funding of jurisdictions implementing sanctuary policies.
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
No. Though racism exists and always will, it does not help when we treat people differently based on their race and pit one group against another by offering benefits and treatment to one group that is different from any other. Treat everyone equally and "ban the box". Reverse discrimination is another form of discrimination. Americans have had it with the identity politics game.
