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

Men are sinners therefore the Founders wanted our Republic to have checks and balances so man's nature could not corrupt our Republic! The Founders warned that if the vertical separation of power should ever break down so that all power began to be concentrated in Washington, a arrogant abuse of the people by government officials would occur. If the legislative, executive and judicial departments failed to act as a check on each other, there would be tyranny and people would lose their freedom!

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

First, bring Oversight back to Congress on such issues as trade, financial markets, the rule of law and bureaucratic executive overreach! Restore the checks and balances that keep us a Constitutional Republic and not a Mob Rule Democracy! Second, shine a bright light on Washington D.C. to expose waste, abuse of power and lack of accountability from our government! Third, downsize the overall footprint of the federal government by cutting back its expansion into our lives and businesses thru its regulations and laws! I am the only Volunteer Republican from the Base who will finally address taxes, spending and debt! I am a Conservative, Tea Party Republican who will cut taxes, cut spending while limiting the ever-increasing federal government from expanding! Government needs to be put in check before it writes any more checks! Use the United States Constitution and House of Representatives own rules to reign in a government system and bureaucracy that is out of control!

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

Yes, there should be an exception to save the life of the mother!

17. 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, Voters, Constitution, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Leviticus 19:17-19 God says, 'Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD'. He explains that loving others as you love yourself is the way to be a good Christian. You can take this anyway you like, but ultimately, you can use it in your life to treat people as you would want to be treated and your life will be great, as will the life of others you encounter. I believe in God, Family and Country! I believe in the Golden Rule to treat others the way in which I wish to be treated! If God is for us, who can be against us! I am very fond of the Gospel of Saint Matthew 5:3-10 The Eight Beatitudes of Jesus and Luke 11:9-10 And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
