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.

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?

The morning after pill should continue to be available. I agree with heartbeat laws and extreme danger to the mother life. It should be rare and not option for birth control after a heartbeat exists.


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?

Social Security has already reached insolvency. The nanny state is not capable of supporting all people and should not. Self-directed retirement programs should be required. Providing options and accountability gives all people an opportunity to determine their future. Our current system of Social Security doesn’t guarantee a living but an existence in poverty

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

(Did not answer)

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

(Did not answer)


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?

(Did not answer)


Healthcare

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

Strongly Disagree   

I support the elimination of private healthcare insurance.

Strongly Disagree   

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

A one size fits all approach that is socialized medicine is a dismal failure. Government subsidized Health insurance should be a SafetyNet not an entitlement. Opening the free market across state lines will create competition and affordability. Tax incentives for employers for negotiated pricing should be encouraged. Catastrophic health insurance should be available in all states. Transparency and portability in a free market will raise the standard of care for all citizens.


National Security

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

Strongly Agree   

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Secure our Borders. End Chain migration and increase screening for VISA's of all natures. Stop all financial aid to counties that support terrorism. Increase budgeting for Homeland Security. Encourage private business not to conduct business with foreign supporters of terrorism. Block all avenues of banking, funding sponsors of terrorism.


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.

Strongly Agree   

Employers should be required to use E-verify to confirm the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.

Strongly Agree   

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

(Did not answer)


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.

I am a Catholic Christian of Jewish decent and believe the Messiah absolved us of our sins. I believe we have one God of many names who expects us to do what is just and compassionate. I strive to understand the history of religion for a better knowledge of what we have in common. Whether religious or spiritual we are human and have common bond that will bring us together if we allow it.
