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.


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


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


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

Man has a tendency to do what is easy, not what is right. The founders laid a framework that requires vigilance and involvement to avoid the consolidation of power in an oppressive, centralized government. They chose to invoke the rights and responsibilities of the individual and empower the States consenting to be United, rather than consolidate decisions and power in a centralized federal government.

17. 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.

God the Creator, Voters, The Constitution, and on an equal level: Congress and Supreme Court. None of the others were granted, or recognized as an authority in the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution.

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you. There is a God and all things have a spirit within them. It is up to the individual to determine what they do with what they are given.
