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.

It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has a livable income.
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?
First, we stop taking from Social Security (SS) to fund other projects or programs. Second, we make sure that we do not allow people to draw Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) that did not pay into it. One of the biggest issues facing SS is that the government is allowing people to draw SSI when they have never paid into SS. So many have learned how to game our system. We must make sure we do not allow this to happen. This will be a huge step to ensure SS benefits are available for those that paid into SS.
What government spending would you reduce in order to balance the budget?
We must reduce welfare and other social programs. Granted, some people need assistance for a time. However, we have generations abusing the system and this must stop. No government funds should not be spent on assisting illegal aliens, zero! Many politicians will attempt to tell you it is not happening, it most certainly is. We must also stop sending aid to countries that hate us. Stop any and all federal funds to all sanctuary states and cities.
Under what circumstances should taxpayers help pay off existing student loans?
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?
This term simply means that the government will not tell you how to or to worship. This means the right not to believe in God. However, it does not mean others get to tell me or others that we cannot believe in and praise God. Furthermore, it means that others do not get to tell me I cannot pray or worship. The separation of church and state does not mean, No God. It means we are free to worship how and when we like. I am so tired of atheist using this catch phrase to prevent others from expressing and practicing their freedom of religion
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?
First, it is not the place of the government to be in the healthcare business. The government should not be mandating and dictating what healthcare citizens use and do not use. We use free enterprise and let citizens negotiate the best healthcare for them and their families
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?
First, we need to stop allowing just anyone in. Chain migration must stop. For a time, there are people from some countries that should not be allow into the U.S. Elected officials have been elected to work for the American Citizens. They are not elected to work for people of other countries. We need to remind them of this very important fact.
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.

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.
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?
We must use a merit-based system. Many good and talented people want to come to the United States. We must make sure everyone that comes to our Country loves American and our way of life. We do not want or need people coming to our country that hate America. All must come to our country LEGALLY!
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 child of the Most Hight Jesus Christ. I am a blessed servant leader that desires to serve my country in Congress. It is important that we again have real God-fearing men and women in Congress that will always include God in all of their decisions. I am a real Christian that puts Jesus in every decision I make. That is who I am and who I will remain for without Jesus I know I am nothing.

When you elect or help me get elected We are going to Congress. You are going with me because you will finally have a voice in Congress.
Mandatory minimum sentencing should be required and enforced for violent crimes.
What restrictions on gun ownership are needed to protect public safety?
The Second Amendment guarantees that all law-abiding citizens have the right to bear arms. That right shall not be infringed. The only restrictions on gun ownership that is needed to protect public safety should be imposed on criminals. We must be careful because there are many that feel that it is easier to impose mass punishment on law abiding citizens. I will always fight for our rights, the right of law-abiding citizens to bear arms.

It will also help with public safety. -Better care for our Veterans – We must do a far better job of taking care of our veterans. -Congressional term limits
Is racism a threat to domestic security in the United States? Why or why not?
No racism is a fact of life, but we must never tolerate actual racism. We also cannot allow everything to be called racism. This has become a tool of the left to silence others. It is imperative that we get back to reasoning with one another. We must be able to agree to disagree and have civil dialogue to determine viable solutions that will assist as we fix real issues of racism.
