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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Many families are on waiing lists to adopt Gods creation. So abortions should not be allowed. One of my primary opponets has voted for sex education for minors and the use of condoms. I would never prescribe the morning after pill or birth control pills if I was a member of the healthcare profession either. Theses are statements of MY ACTIONS regarding pro-life.


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

The state constitution should limit the growth of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Strongly Agree

Congress should pass a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.

Strongly Agree

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Unemploment is brought down by the dignity of a job. Before the pandemic the Us had the lowest unemployment in recorded history. Private sector creates jobs that are lasting not government bureaucrats.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Boosting the economy as was proven the last 3 years is by government working to reduce regulations, having functioning low interest rates.Burdensome regulations can do more harm than most would think as it stops investment.Those are very powerful tools.

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


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?

Healthcare that is best for all is a competitive process.Having a family member as a doctor is a great asset in working to impliment change in the system. Having deductibles even small amounts can lead to dramtically reduce overall healthcare costs. Having to put an investment in when you go to a doctor creates an invisible hand for prudent cost reduction. Competition lowers costs. Healthcare as a God caring society is provided to the disabled that have no other way to provide for themselves.

National Security

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

Strongly Agree


I support sanctuary cities.

Strongly Disagree


Tuition-free public education should be guaranteed through college.

Strongly Disagree


Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

George Washington's comment that “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society” is still true today.

Strongly Agree

Any teaching to children on sex education in public schools must include all contraceptive methods, and should not show preference to abstinence.

Strongly Disagree

People should be allowed to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms based on "gender identity."

Strongly Disagree

Parents should be the primary authority in decisions affecting their minor children.

Strongly Agree

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

Speration of Powers is a fundamental foudation of our way of Government. No one unit of Govt should have power over the other. In Wisconsin we have a Governor that is assuming more power than he has. The State Supreme Court had to step in to declare what he was doing was unconstitutional. The legislature needs to assume more power to be a check against the Governor than they have been doing thus far.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My spirtual beliefs has been formed my entire life by attending Church as a baby continuing to today. We are a creation of the Lord.It is so importnant to have a personal relationship with the Lord. My Hope and Trust is in Jesus Christ and not man or Government.


I voted in these primaries and general elections:

2012 Republican Primary, 2012 General Election, 2014 Republican Primary, 2014 General Election, 2016 Republican Primary, 2016 General Election, 2018 Republican Primary, 2018 General Election

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.

I was one of the speakers at the freedom rally on the Capitol on April 24,2020 to reopen Wisconsin. I have been rated by your organization in the past as very conservative. I am proposing as a bill to impeach Gov Evers. He has violated his oath of office by issuing the stay at home orders. The State Supreme Court ruled that way. He allowed rioting and vandalism of busionesses in Madison. At least tacitly supports defunding the police,He is involved in a coverup of a felony in the scandal of recording elected legislatures. These are why I am supporting impeachment. If we do not stand for rule of law than what do we stand for. I am the only candidate in this race supporting those principles for impeachment. My one opponent is rated as a swing voter meaning they vote for both parties. I do not. The other has no rating as they vote than less than 50% of time that elections are held. Uncomfortable documented truths.

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

My business education tells me government can not spend more than what the people can afford. If you get a 2% raise and government spending goes up 4%, than that would be a budget I would not vote for. The speech I gave at the capitol in April was all about Freedom. The freedom to attend church should be based on speration of church and state (It goes both ways). Meaning the government has NO right to regulate anything about how a church operates. The Govt is to be the servant not the master in how we live our lives. In the past 3 months the government was usurping our personal rights. I have always been known as a conservative and involved in the causes long before I ran for office. Some run for office come out of the blue and then claim to be conservative I have long ago walked the walk before just talking The current state budget needs to be FROZEN to compensate for the lost revenue from the lockdown we just went through. I will not vote for a tax increase period.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

Thank you for asking! I believe we are at a crisis in this state and country our rights are being taken away by a out of control government. How is it a Governor can be party to a coverup of a felony regarding taping legislators and no one proposes he be impeached. He violated his oath of office violating the state constitution. He allowed rioting and damage of state owned property. The right to protest does not include the right to destroy. Defund police is allowed to be painted on a road leading to the state capitol. Some will just complain over and over again but do nothing about it. It may not be politically correct or make someone uncomfortable. Conservative organizations want important legislation passed but it seems to not happen. I will try to get it done by proposing amendments to important bills to get it passed that way. To many politicians just talk and nothing gets done. I will not just be a reporter telling the bad things I will try to reverse it.

Judicial Philosophy

Islamic law (Sharia) should take precedence over national and state laws where there are Islamic majority communities in the U. S.

Strongly Disagree

Criminal Justice

I support the death penalty.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

2nd Amendment

More restrictive gun control is needed to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree
