Other Information

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?

When the life of the mother is at stake.


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?

While few things in life are guaranteed, appropriate controls and access to Social Security payments must be re/established.

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

Waste in government grants spending would be a good place to start. Accountability mechanisms need to be perfected and enforced. Follow the money.

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

None. It is reported that the terms of many student loans were unfair. Where abuse is found, the lender must adjust the loan terms. Taxpayers pay for k-12th grade education. Further education brings personal benefits and that offset its cost.


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?

State authority should not be used to dictate or influence church authority; nor should church authority be used to to influence civil matters.


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?

Open national competition of insurers will immediately drive down prices, open access, range and increase the quality of healthcare options available.


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?

I'm not sure how any threat can be eradicated.


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?

Immigration should be granted on a merit basis. During this crisis, there should be a net zero growth so that the number of those leaving only are admitted. Asylum laws and provisions are already established and must be upheld.


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 believe that Y'Shua is the Messiah, born of a virgin, died and was resurrected. His Spirit resides in those who have received Him as a gift of God.


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?

Conservative   

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

In general, limited government keeps individuals responsible to and for themselves. This allows for the personal choice and one's pursuit of happiness. Government's primary responsibility is to ensure the protection and safety of its citizens. Foreign policy should be forged to bring mutual benefit and maximize the benefits of both. Tricky business all said.

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 love the USA. I have lived in many countries and know that this thing we have is because of the Constitution and our freedoms. I want to fight for parent rights, policies that strengthen safety measures to provide the wholesome environment for family, communities, and businesses to thrive. Unity is our strength, and what is attacked to weaken us. Freedom is not a right, it must be fought for to keep. God gave us the power of CHOICE and we must vote our values, and the future we want for our children. AOC promised that our lifestyle would change if they win "No more American brunch." Believe her. What do we want?


Criminal Justice

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

Strongly Agree   


2nd Amendment

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

Those who have committed a felony ora history of mental illness should not be allowed to own firearms.


Other Important Issues

I support BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanction) against Israel if they refuse to allow the creation of a Palestinian state.

Strongly Disagree   

I support the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Strongly Disagree   

Reparations should be given to people on the basis of race.

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?

Establish enforceable standards for media integrity Accountability for all monies utilized or granted by governmental bodies at all levels of governance Promote school choice

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

Racism is a reality worldwide. Recently there has been much incited racism in the USA, particularly in Blue states. The domestic terrorism that we have experienced has been reported to be financed by White liberals with an agenda to divide the country for their political agenda and ambition to change our form of government. They reject the 160+ years of peaceful transitions of government that the USA has achieved and enjoyed. This cannot be allowed to continue for the safety of our children, communities, businesses and stability of government.
