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

As human beings we are flawed, imperfect and a little power can corrupt, I believe the founders of America realized this. Our forefathers carefully defined, separated and set limits so that no person or branch of government would have total power over all.

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 do not yet have a track record politically; however, I can say I fight for fairness, common sense and what is right. In my present community last year I was moved to get out and start picking up trash and cutting the grass and clean up abandoned properties as a way to help my community look better as well as prayerfully change the cycle of psychology present. My motive was simple if I could get people together, get them talking I could help change the mind set of at least one youth or adult and start to repair the rifts in the community; Operation Brightside - focusing on brightening the spot you are in. I will be out again this summer from May to October picking up trash and cutting grass.

Additional comment from candidate:

VETERANS • We must honor those who served in the armed services to defend our freedom. I am committed to the fight for our veterans; when elected, I will work to increase employment opportunities for our veterans by offering incentives to businesses to hire veterans. EDUCATION • As federal overreach in our education system has grown, positive outcomes have diminished. We need to end the monopoly which exists in the school system by supporting choice. It is time to stop common core and it's one size fits all approach. Instead we should empower local school boards, local principals and teachers to make decisions that are best for students; most importantly empower parents over bureaucrats. JOBS • Millionaires and billionaires doing great while the people who are being hammered are the small business owners. I will fight for tax incentives for the small businessmen and women of this state. It is time to stop smothering our small business owners. I will look for ways to aide
