Question I

d21c8f4981f9c4a821e48fbded1c3df4--my-style-firearms.jpg

The right to self-defense is one of man’s most basic natural rights. The 2nd Amendment of the Constitution says no law shall be made to infringe on the “right to bear arms.” Fourteen states currently allow law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons without a permit; these are called “Constitutional Carry” states. These states allow citizens to protect themselves and their families from criminals by not restricting their right to self-defense.

 

1) Will you support a “Constitutional Carry” bill that would allow any law-abiding citizen to carry a firearm concealed without a permit?

 

YES____ NO_____ WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______


The right to due process of law is enshrined in the United States Constitution.  However currently in Virginia this is ignored.  Virginia has some of the worst civil forfeiture laws in the nation, where property is seized from citizens without a conviction or even your day in court.  In fact, from 2000-2014, over $34 Million dollars have been seized from Virginia Residents without due process of law.

   2) Will you support legislation to eliminate Civil Asset Forfeiture in Virginia and require a conviction prior to property being seized?

 

  YES____ NO_____ WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______

Question II


One key component of ObamaCare is the expansion of state Medicaid programs to 138% of the federal poverty level. 97% of citizens gaining ObamaCare coverage are now on expanded Medicaid programs. Not only is this optional program unaffordable, implementing it obligates the state to cede control over their Medicaid programs to the federal government.

 

  3) Will you support legislation that would repeal ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion in Virginia?

 

  YES____ NO_____ WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______

Question III


In the 2017 school year, over 31,000 students in Virginia were home schooled. And even though their parents pay for public schooling, in addition to home school costs, these students are prevented from participating in organized after school sports programs in our state.  31 States have passed legislation to allow home school students to participate in after school sports programs.

 

 4) Will you support legislation to allow home school students to participate in after school sports?

 

 YES____ NO_____ WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______

Question IV


Even though taxpayers have already paid for the construction of state highways through the State Income Tax, Virginia residents are forced to pay outrageous tolls on Route 66 and other state highways due to the fiscal mismanagement of highway funds, essentially amounting to double taxation.

 

 5) Will you support legislation to eliminate all tolls on state funded roads and highways?

 

YES____ NO_____ WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______

Question V


In the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Kelo v. New London, the United States Supreme Court ruled that private property cannot be taken by government and conveyed to a private entity for development.  However the practice of using government force to take property from private citizens for private corporation profits still continues.  In the state of Virginia, the state constitution allows the General Assembly to define what “public use” means, so in order to prevent private corporations from using Eminent Domain, a constitutional amendment must be passed in order to complete reform in favor of property owners.

6) Will you support a constitutional amendment to once and for all end the use of Eminent Domain for private corporation profit?

 

YES_____     NO____  WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION _______

Question VI


Food freedom is one of the most basic freedoms.  In 11 states it is legal to sell or purchase raw milk and raw milk products.  However, in the Commonwealth, raw Milk is illegal and you can be jailed for selling raw milk or any raw milk products.

7) Will you support legislation to legalize the sale of raw milk and raw milk products in Virginia?

 

 YES______    NO_____         WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION_____       

Question VII

 

 

 

                                                                 


The 10th Amendment to the Constitution allows a State to “nullify” un-Constitutional laws, making them null and void within a State.  The Federal Government has no authority to regulate intrastate health care, nor to deny citizens the ability to purchase out of state health insurance.

8)  Will you support legislation nullifying Obamacare and making the ACA illegal in Virginia?

 

 YES______    NO_____         WILL SPONSOR LEGISLATION_____       

Question VIII
