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

1). Provide for the Common Defense--there are only a few things Washington should be doing according to the Constitution and one of them is to provide for the Common Defense. We must get our priorities back as a nation and shore up our national security and stop the Administration's onerous cuts which are hollowing out our forces.. 2). Reverse the onerous policies of this Administration which are stifling job creation and infringing on our rights--repeal & replace ObamaCare; rein in EPA and other agencies like the IRS; repeal Dodd-Frank; cut regulations; unleash American energy. 3). Stand strong for our Judeo-Christian values and foundational principles which made this country great including marriage, strong families, and life.

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

For the life of the mother

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 (the people), Constitution, (Congress and Supreme Court's equivalent authorities are enumerated in the Constitution).

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian believing God created me and loves me but my sin separated me from God. Thankfully, He sent his son, Jesus, to the Earth years ago to take my punishment on himself and make a way for me and others to be reconciled to God. I accepted what Jesus did for me when I was nine years old, repented of my sins, and asked Jesus to be Lord of my life. I am thankful for the relationship I have with the Lord and rely on Him for peace, strength, and wisdom.
