1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.
2. It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.
3. The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.
4. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry of persons into the country.
5. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.
6. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.
7. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.
8. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.
9. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.
10. Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions when these are not economically feasible.
11. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.
12. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.
13. People should be able to vote without photo identification.
14. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?
Man is essentially evil and our Founders believed that we should not allow any one man or branch of government to have absolute power which is why they created a division of powers between 3 branches to check one another. The people are the final check on tyrannical government. The Constitution was meant to be a chain on government preventing it from restricting the rights of it's citizens.
15. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.
1. The issue of abortion is similar to the evils of slavery that was once legal in America. I will support the Life at Conception Act in order to overturn Roe V. Wade. 2. Neo-cons have taken over our foreign policy and bled our treasury dry with misguided wars in Iraq, Libya, Kosovo and recently wanted to give aid to our enemy Al Qaeda in Syria. We cannot afford to be the policeman of the world and must focus on protecting our own borders. We must also end all foreign aid to countries that persecute Christian minorities. 3. We must also reform our Tax system as the IRS is the biggest impediment to economic growth. I support HR 25 which is the Fair Tax and would abolish the IRS and replace it with a national sales tax. Currently our tax system embeds a hidden 22% tax on all domestically produced goods making imports cheap and inflating American made goods. The Fair Tax would level the playing field for our manufacturers and bring a tsunami of jobs back to the US.
16. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?
Abortion should be allowed for the life of the mother.
17.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a Christian who places my salvation in Christ. I have taught Sunday School and try to read Our Daily Bread every morning. I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman and that families are the basic building block of society.
