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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.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

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?

The founding fathers believed that power belongs to God, and it is His to wield as He wills, but as He gives power to we the people, they could see that power belongs to the people, not to government. They had a keen sense of right and wrong, of justice versus injustice, and from their previous experience with government, they knew that absolute power would corrupt absolutely.

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?

Every life is precious, created by God and should only be taken by God. At times, God might choose to save a baby and take a mother's life. Even in the cases of rape and incest, God can do and has done miracles with children who have not been aborted. There are no such thing as illegitimate children, but there are at times illegitimate parents.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus, the Son of God, is the Messiah who died on the cross to pay for my sins (and yours!) and rose from the dead 3 days later proving He is God. God is the Creator and Sustainer of life. And it is God for whom I live. If my life as a wife, as a mother, as a business owner, as a candidate and hopefully as a Senator someday is displeasing to God, then I have failed. His Word is my guide. I also believe God willingly forgives those who confess their sins, but that forgiveness should not be used as a license to sin.
