I take morality seriously both privately, because I strive to be a good person, and as a moral obligation to my fellow man. Publicly, as an elected official, I believe the most relevant and necessary virtues I would have and practice are 1.

Justice – I will endorse policies that protect each individual’s right to his own life, liberty, property, and his pursuit of happiness and I will oppose any policy or law that unjustly takes away from a man what he has earned.
