Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Before we discuss the legality or the moral issue of an abortion there needs to be a discussion about responsibility. There also needs to be an understanding that sex, as enjoyable as it is, is a secondary purpose of having sex. Especially, during child rearing ages. If you engage in sexual activity then understand that the couple is attempting to have a baby even if they are just having sex for enjoyment. Attempting to avoid the responsibilities of pregnancy by having an abortion is not acting responsible. Simply because the contraceptives did not work does not relieve the couple from the responsibility of the baby they just conceived. If more individuals were held responsible for their actions maybe the abortion issue would not exist. I do not support abortions.

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

The unquenchable thirst of ambitious, greedy men and women who seek the power to control the people resulting in a loss of their God given liberties.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian first and foremost. I live by the same principles of Christianity that guided our founding fathers. Christianity was the predominate religion throughout the colonies. The purposes and principles of the Christian religion help create a civil society allowing men and women the right of self governance. I respect the different beliefs taught in the various sects of Christianity. Non Christian religions are protected by the first amendment as well.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?


Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I am a law abiding citizen who is prepared to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. I welcome all who want to come to this country and become a U.S. Citizen. A citizen who will practice good citizenship and obey our laws and help preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. It's about being an American, not a Republican or Democrat.

Additional comment from candidate:

I love this country. My relative Samuel Burbank fought at Bunker Hill during the American Revolutionary War. He fought to create our country. I am prepared to fight to restore and maintain what he fought to create.
