14. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?

To fight oppression by Government. Our Founders experienced the rule under a King, and fought that system in order to be free men. Our Founders did not want a "strong" government that would limit human life, potential and freedom.

15. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.

1) Repeal Obamacar: It hurting working families and small businesses. 2) Decrease Government Spending: We must live within our means - we must cut waste, fraud and abuse. 3) Military Veterans: They have the highest unemployment rate in America, and many are dealing with mental and physical challenges that are back-logged in the VA hospitals for claim centers. We must cut the red-tape!

16. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

I am 100% Right to Life. Even taking a child's life when the mother's life is in danger concerns me. While I understand rape, incest and life a mother are generally accepted reasons for an abortion, by my fellow pro-life friends, I will never be comfortable knowing that a life is being taken in any of these circumstances.

17. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian, and I a sinner. I look towards God for guidance, comfort, healing and hope.
