Neutral

Strongly Agree

6. People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

7. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

9. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

10. There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Strongly Agree

Strongly Agree

12. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.
