Pro-lifeCandidate AnswerDo you generally support pro-choice or pro-life legislation?

I believe Life begins at conception. Life is therefore protected under the US Constitution. I accept under certain circumstances Abortion may be medically required and performed. This should not be left to a few in our Court System, but debated and voted upon in Congress.

I support one Consumption based National Sales Tax called the FairTax. It will completely replace our current Federal Tax Code that benefits the Wealthy in America and has destroyed the Middle Class.

NoDo you support the regulation of indirect campaign contributions from corporations and unions?
Other or expanded principles

I support Freedom! We must allow every American to compete in our Political System. However, we must have FULL DISCLOSURE of ALL money associated with a campaign.

YesDo you support capital punishment for certain crimes?

There is no greater crime than murder. It is the protection of Life that is the very foundation of our Constitution and responsibility of government.

Other or expanded principles

Federal spending is obviously necessary for effective government. However, the Socialist view of creating government jobs merely to redistribute tax dollars from Middle Class families is wrong.

I support Tax Incentives for businesses to hire American's first!

Unemployment should be a bridge back to a job, not a way of life.

I support the FairTax. Replacement of our currently broken Federal Tax Code.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you support requiring states to implement education reforms in order to be eligible for competitive federal grants?
Other or expanded principles

Education is vital to American Children. However we must return to a working partnership between American Parents and Educators, and allow our "Teachers to Teach Again." The classroom needs to be restored as a place of respect and learning, not dominated by political activists with social agendas.

YesDo you believe that human activity is contributing to climate change?
YesCandidate AnswerDo you support the federal regulation of greenhouse gas emissions?
YesCandidate AnswerDo you support reducing restrictions on offshore energy production?

YesDo you support a timetable for withdrawal from Afghanistan?
YesCandidate AnswerDo you support targeting suspected terrorists outside of official theaters of conflict?
Other or expanded principles

I want to reevaluate our commitments around the World. I am ready to put "Defense" back into National Defense and bring our troops home. I will require that Nations take responsibility for their own security and borders. That involves policing terrorists within your country. If a terrorist attack again occurs on America, the Nation involved with be held responsible. The days of "Nation Building" are over.

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support restrictions on the purchase and possession of guns?
Other or expanded principles

This is a Constitutional Right. I would ask those who support the attack on responsible gun owners what Rights they enjoy under our Constitution they are willing to give up.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you support repealing the 2010 Affordable Care Act?
NoCandidate AnswerShould individuals be required to purchase health insurance, as mandated in the 2010 Affordable Care Act?
Other or expanded principles

I blame Politicians in both parties for this Constitutional disaster. Republicans failed to act for years. Democrats have made a Socialist power grab. We will repeal Obama's plan and replace it with the measures that enjoyed Bi Partisan support. Where to begin you might ask when it comes to the areas that need repealing? The very areas that require waivers given by Obama's admin. to their very own political allies.

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support requiring illegal immigrants to return to their country of origin before they are eligible for citizenship?
YesDo you support allowing illegal immigrants, who were brought to the United States as minors, to pursue citizenship without returning to their country of origin?
YesDo you support the enforcement of federal immigration law by state and local police?
Other or expanded principles

We will secure America's borders. We will allow those within our country to pursue citizenship. We will pursue an amendment that no longer allows "Birthright" citizenship but rather requires one parent to be an American Citizen. We will take the politics out of immigration and link it to the unemployment rate in our country. If unemployment remains below 6 percent we will allow immigration. Above 6 percent we will tell the World we need some time to allow us to stabilize our economy.

YesCandidate AnswerDo you support same-sex marriage?
Other or expanded principles

I support equal rights for American Citizens. LGBT citizens are no less American than I, and should enjoy the same protection under law. "Marriage" is a very emotional and deeply held commitment between a Man and a Woman. It is also Biblically sacred. I challenge the Rainbow community to step up and establish a word other than Marriage that reflects the commitment of one human to another. It will be recognized under Law. You are a vastly diverse and creative community. Join me in taking away the cause of discrimination, and help Unite America!

NoCandidate AnswerDo you support allowing individuals to divert a portion of their Social Security taxes into personal retirement accounts?
Other or expanded principles

I am for eliminating Social Security Taxes. Taxation of the very income provided by the government from money produced by Middle Class America in the first place, makes no sense. We will replace the current Tax Code with the FairTax and allow you to KEEP ALL OF YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY MONEY.

Please explain in a total of 100 words or less, your top two or three priorities if elected. If they require additional funding for implementation, please explain how you would obtain this funding.

Our government is BROKEN. I will pursue the 3 most effective means of fixing it.

1. Elimination of an abusive Tax code replacing it with one simple "Transparent" code called the FairTax. See it at

2. A Balanced Budget Amendment requiring Congress to Balance their Budgets.

3. Term Limits for Congress. 12 Years for a Senator, and 8 Years for a Congressman. The end of Aristocracy in America!
