Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Abortion is a terrible answer often to a terrible problem. It is easy for those who are not carrying a baby as the result of incest, rape, or other circumstances that pull at the heartstrings of most Americans, to condemn the practice of abortion. However, those who condemn abortion should not be content with the prohibition of abortion only, rather, the same amount of energy, if not more, should be channeled in a direction that secures the protection, nurturing, and healthy environment for babies that are at risk of being aborted. The value of life is something that is being undermined in our schools, by the media, and in society in general as the theory of evolution becomes the belief system from which the value of life stems. As such, human have no inherent value, but are just organisms without a purpose, place, or future. However, Biblically, we know that humans were bought with a price, an invaluable price, THAT is what must be taught. Laws do not change the heart, only God can.

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

Our founding fathers were acutely aware of what happens when there is not a separation of powers, the quashing of freedom. It is in the nature of mankind to be free and to choose his own destiny. The rights outlined in the constitution are God given, government cannot take them away. Nevertheless, it is the nature of government to continually secure power unto itself at the expense and detriment of the masses. Defining, separating, and limiting the powers, insures that our freedoms will remain.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My spiritual beliefs and values are based and founded on the Bible.

Additional comment from candidate:

I am not a "bought" candidate. As a consequence, I do not take contributions from corporate r special interest groups. I can represent the people fairly and honestly. Moreover, I can speak without fear of retribution and vote according to my conscience and not for the benefit of the party or profits. I put principle before party and justice before profits. I practice what i preach. I believe in small government, fiscal responsibility, and the constitution as the rule of law. I have a small campaign staff, the money that I spend for the campaign is spent prayerfully, and my campaign materials are purchased locally. The people must come to the reality that we must sacrifice or we will be sacrificed. The people must take the power back from the government. This can be done by taking your money out of the big banks and putting it into the local banks. In addition, boycott the large corporations and shop locally.Take your stock out of the large banks and corporations. YOU HAVE POWER!!!
