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

The founders recognized that good men would want to exercise power to try and make changes that they thought would make things better. The Constitution with its checks and balances was meant to limit that ability of rulers to exercise that power with the resultant loss of liberty. In the Constitutional Convention it is directly mentioned that the Constitution was meant to be a protection against men of good intent even more so then those of evil intent.

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

1. Dealing with the national debt. We are borrowing over a trillion dollars per year and if that trend is not changed we will be required to pay more in interest payments then to cover the Dept. of Defense within a few short years. The Federal Reserve at the present time is making money out of thin air at a dizzying pace and if continued hyperinflation will soon follow. 2. My daughter is in the Army and we need to restore the purpose of the military to its primary purpose of defending this country and not to rebuild other countries or to be a social experimentation laboratory. 3. To restore integrity and honor in the governance of this country. To do what I say that I am going to do. To actually represent the people of the First District in the great state of Georgia and not the lobbyists that infest Washington, D.C.

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

Abortion should be permissible to save the life of the mother particularly related to such conditions as ectopic pregnancies.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

As an American citizen I am also a citizen of the Kingdom of G-d and I am called to seek that Kingdom wherever I am and whatever that I am doing. I am to seek justice, love mercy and to walk humbly before my G-d for the Kingdom is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
