Strongly Agree

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

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

America's founders believed that a centralized government was too strong and too powerful. They defined, separated and limited powers in an effort to decentralize and allow the people to govern.

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.

Strongly Agree

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

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I have attended and dedicated my life to First Baptist Church of Conroe for 43 years now. My grandmother played the piano for my church for 30 years and her mother played the piano for this church for 30 prior. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and into my heart 31 years ago and I am now , along with my wife Fawn who was also raised Baptist, raising our two children with a strong foundation of faith encouraging the principals I was taught growing up . As a leader in my community and in the legislature, I make every decision by first asking God each day for discernment and wisdom and through the power of prayer I do my best to advance the interests of Texans along with those I have been fortunate enough to work with as brothers and sisters in Christ. God given laws that have established our unalienable rights as free men and women and our individual liberties will be most protected by leaders that insist upon limited government and strong adherence to faith .
