My Positions

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Economic & Tax Policy

“I strongly support the lowering the taxes of hard working Americans. We need to put/leave more money in your pockets in order to make better investments for our country. We need to clean up the current spending practices so as not to waste our tax dollars and to eventually balance our budget and lower our nation's debt. ”

First Amendment For All, Including Christians!

“I strongly support the rights of Christians to exercise there first amendment rights on the "Freedom of Religion!" Small businesses and Religious Groups should have the right to refuse services based on their religious beliefs. There are plenty of other places to go to if you want goods or a service performed. Do not force your position on anyone. ”

Guns & Ammunition

“I strongly support the 2nd Amendment and the right of people to bear arms. e need to check of course that people with mental issues do not have access to weapons, but I would not mind that more people, who are trained (former police, military, etc...), should have the right to carry (concealed or open). I do believe that maybe a better background check should be performed on those seeking guns.”

Education Choice & Vouchers

“I have been a public school teacher for over 20 years. I believe that it is very important to let parents have a major choice in their child's education. I would like parents to receive school vouchers for their children to attend the school of their choice. If public schools are forced to be competitive, they would do a better job and students would have a broad variety of choices. ”

Immigration & Deportation

“I generally oppose illegal immigration to our country from anywhere. I would make an exception if individuals or families lives are in danger. We still need to build a wall, but we need to look at our own immigration policies and change the harsh portions of the law. ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Public Safety

“We need to support law enforcement and programs that will lower local crime rates. I believe that it is imperative that we eliminate all terrorist activities, foreign and domestic, and keep Guantanamo Bay (or a similar facility) open. We need to help all oppressed peoples, who are displaced, tortured, raped, or killed anywhere in the world. We have the capabilities and the means to do so. ”

STRONGLY OPPOSE

Abortion

“I strongly oppose abortion for any reason, other than the mother's life being at risk. Rape and incest are not a reason for an abortion. It is not the baby's fault the mother was raped. Mothers in difficult situations should be given the support they need. From the moment of conception, a baby is a separate new human being. An abortion is painful for the Mom, but even more painful for her Baby! ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

Jobs & the Jobless

“I definitely support the creation of more/new jobs for our American Citizens. I understand that sometimes we fall out of work, and may need programs that give you temporary relief , but only for a short Time (maybe 1 year). You then need to get off the couch and get a job and be a productive member of society. No Excuses !! ”

STRONGLY OPPOSE

Minimum Wage

“I oppose raising the minimum wage too high, too fast. The idea is to force people to better themselves with higher education and/or better experience. Minimum wage jobs are not designed to be living wage. They are start up jobs.....get your feet wet....etc..... If people stay in the minimum wage jobs (because they get enough, etc..), the new people will not have anywhere to go or start. ”

STRONGLY SUPPORT

RFRA

“I strongly support the Religious Freedom Act. If a belief is a part of your religion, then you should have the right to exercise your beliefs in public and private sectors. For example, if a cake decorating business does not want to make the product that is against their religious beliefs, then they should be able to refuse service. The customer has many other businesses to choose from. ”
