Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

5. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

6. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

8. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.

9. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

10. Governments should pay to develop wind and solar energy solutions when these are not economically feasible.

Strongly Disagree

11. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

12. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Strongly Disagree

13. People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

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

The Founder's recognized the fallen state of mankind due to original sin as defined in the Biblical story of creation. They knew that it is in all of our natures to selfishly seek our own good by combining into special interest factions. Knowing that this flaw cannot be corrected until the Savior returns they created a governmental system of checks and balances to pit those special interests against each other, neutralizing the ability of any one faction to dominate.

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

1. Restoring the Constitutional rights that have been trampled by the Executive Branch repeated refusals to abide the principal of separation of powers. 2. Restoring the Constitutional right of Freedom to Worship that has been undermined since the 1963 O'Hare decision, through court interpretations that deny our national public right to acknowledge the Almighty. 3. Balance the federal budget through elimination of the majority of federal activities, thereby restoring our economic future.

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

Yes, to preserve 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, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

The Apostle's Creed perfectly describes my beliefs concerning the Almighty. The Decalogue perfectly describes my beliefs as to the priorities of our Christian duties. I believe the Bible is God's perfect revelation of Himself to mankind. Our nation's prosperity and strength is a direct gift of God. Since we began turning away from Him beginning with the 1963 O'Hare decision and continuing with the 1973 Roe decision, we have seen him begin to turn his back on us. We must not only reform our government, but reform ourselves and our society to truly restore America.
