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. It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

Disagree

3. The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.

Agree

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

Agree

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Disagree

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

Agree

10. Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions when these are not economically feasible.

Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

12. 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.

Disagree

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

Disagree

14. The federal government should establish nationwide standards (such as Common Core) for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

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

The Founders were careful to define, separate and limit power through the Constitution, because they were very concerned that a new government in America would re-create the centralized power of the monarchy they had fought to be free from. The Founders believed that competition for power, within the three branches of government, would serve as a check and balance to the ambition for power of those individuals in each branch of government.

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

1. Reducing the national debt is my highest priority, because our economic and national security depend on it. Our position in the world is weak, because our government has created so much debt. When the economy rebounds, and interest rates begin to rise, it will be impossible for the government to make debt payments at increased interest rates. 2. Repealing burdensome regulations, like Obamacare, is another top priority for me. Mandates like Obamacare are slowing our economy, and stifling job growth. Nearly 75% of new jobs that have been added to the economy are part time, because the burdens of Obamacare make it difficult for small business to high full-time employees. 3. My third priority is reducing the authority of the Federal Government to it's Constitutionally granted role. We must return power and responsibility to state governments.

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

Only, in the very limited cases, where it will save the life of the mother. Doctors must make every effort to save both the life of the mother AND the unborn child, before such a drastic decision might be reached.

18. 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

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I believe this country and the Constitution are great because they recognize the natural rights of all, that come from God, not man.
