Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

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.

Strongly Agree

2. Election of judges by the people for a definite term of office is the best way to select judges.

Strongly Agree

3. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

4. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.

Strongly Disagree

5. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry of persons into the country.

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

8. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.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

11. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

13. Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Strongly Agree

14. The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Disagree

15. Religious freedom is our most foundational freedom and deserves added protection in our state and federal constitutions.

Strongly Agree

16. 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.

Strongly Disagree

17. Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

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

We have an old sin nature and tend to glory ourselves instead of God, seeking to consolidate power to that end. Question 16 is germane: James Madison said In Federalist #10 "that pure democracies have no cure for inducements to sacrifice the weaker party, and "have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property."

19. 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.

God, Constitution, voters, congress, supreme court

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

After every reasonable effort is made to save both the mother and her child if mother's life is in danger.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Government is taking over more and more of charitable work once performed by the Church. Government seeks to be a solution to all problems for mankind-- and those who commit to this path want the direct personal path to power that government solutions inevitably bring: This ruling class want the government to be sovereign, not God. A government that seeks to be everything to all people will invariably eat out our substance, and reduce freedom and prosperity. The smaller the government, with less taxes, means more money that Coloradans can give, keep, or spend as they see fit. Waste and misery are spread when meted out by government; when the taxpayer commits individually to charity, we are not only blessed to give (because faith without works is dead), but those receiving such charity are more open to the blessings of our heavenly Father and a step closer to the salvation provided by our Lord Jesus Christ.
