Questionnaire

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.

Strongly Agree

2. Election of judges by the people for a definite term of office is the best way to select judges.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

8. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.

Strongly Agree

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

10. There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Agree

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

Strongly Agree

12. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

Strongly Agree

13. Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Agree

14. The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Disagree

15. Religious freedom is our most foundational freedom and deserves added protection in our state and federal constitutions.

Strongly Agree

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

The sin nature of humans is the reason our founders separated the powers and severely limited them so that no one person or group could overrule others. Shared power, and checks-and-balances limit this possibility.

17. 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.

Disagree

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, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court. (The founders established a Republic, not a Democracy.)

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

There is one God, eternally existing in 3 persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Son came in the flesh as man for the purpose of paying the penalty for the sins of the whole world and we obtain salvation through faith in His death and resurrection. The Bible is the Word of God.
