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.

4. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry of persons into the country.

Strongly Agree

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

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

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.

Disagree

14. The federal government should establish nationwide standards (such as Common Core) for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

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

Mankind's fallen nature includes ambition for power that then makes him vulnerable to becoming vicious and corrupt, leading to tyranny and suffering. They were very wise. We must practice good citizenship to enjoy the protections of this wisdom in the Constitution.

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

1. Obamacare is harmful to the country and needs to be repealed. 2. Reform the tax code beginning with repeal of Amendment XVI (Income Tax). Our tax code inhibits prosperity and fosters corruption. Citizens should not be burdened with a tax law that no one can read or fully understand. 3. Balance of the federal budget and elimination of the national debt are necessary to financial soundness and stability of our country. These are fundamental Constitutional responsibilities of the Congress.

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

No. Rape and incest do not constitute conditions that would justify the taking of the unborn life. Every life is sacred. Better to give compassion and gentle care to the mother, and facilitate opportunity for adoption if she desires.

18. 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

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an actively practicing Catholic. I attend daily Mass. In this life, I seek to know God and love him with all my strength, and with the help of God's Law and Grace to find greater faith and hope and to serve Him with love and charity.
