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.

No Answer   

Abortion providers, including Planned Parenthood, should not receive taxpayer funds or grants from federal, state, or local governments.

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?

Rape, Incest - first trimester only - and protection of life of the mother. Generally, however, I want government out of our lives, and that includes government not telling people what to do with their bodies. No abortions after first trimester (absent threat to mother's life). Personally, I am against abortion.


Economy

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.

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?

(Did not answer)

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

Smaller government. Less government jobs. More private sector jobs. Work on making cuts to massive entitlement programs.

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

Taxpayers should not be responsible for paying off existing student loans.


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.

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?

(Did not answer)


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?

Do everything available to stop this threat from infiltrating our country. To the extent it does infiltrate our country, use all available means to eradicate it. We cannot allow this evil to spread.


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.

Agree   

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

I support legal immigration. I am opposed to illegal immigration. People who follow our immigration laws should be allowed to immigrate.


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.

Agree   

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I have a very strong belief in God. The bedrock of our nation are our Judeo-Christian values, and we must do everything necessary to keep God in our lives, including in our schools.


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.

If you Google me you will be able to find a number of statements, articles and other matters in which I am involved, including legal matters, which validate my answer to the previous question.

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?

(Did not answer)


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?

I support the Second Amendment and I support concealed carry laws.


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.

Neutral   

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?

1. Withholding Federal funds to schools that hire teachers and contractors to indoctrinate children with Anti-American, pro-Socialist, racially and religiously divisive and radically sexualized agendas; 2. Legislation supporting the rebuilding of the nation's mental healthcare system to house and care for the nation's severely mentally ill; 3. Legislation to allow ICE to work with law enforcement to remove illegal immigrants convicted of felonies (regardless of existing sanctuary laws).

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

No. The word "racism" has been so used and abused that it is becoming harder and harder to define what it really means. Racism is not a threat to domestic security. Instead the term is being abused to prevent the non-politically correct from involvement in needed public debate.
