16. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.
Federal assumption of unconstitutional power. Some people seek to oppress their fellows. It is inevitable that these types will find their way into government from time to time and by limiting the power of federal government, we limit their ability to use it for oppressing the individual. The promotion of unsound economic and monetary policy. The system of taxation and debt based currency under private control in this country is simply theft of the citizen's labor. The economic controls that must be enacted to keep this system afloat are not sustainable and accelerate the dwindling spiral of our prosperity and liberty. Crony capitalism and the idea that elected office can be exploited to do favors for some groups or individuals at the expense of others. As our government produces no goods, nor originates any services from it's own industry, any policy that is not equally applicable or available to all citizens is nothing more than directing the wealth of many into the hands of a few.

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I believe fully in God as the creator of the universe and the natural laws which regulate it's function. I also believe that following Christian values are the way in which man can experience the optimum survival within the system of natural law.
