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 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 into the country.

Strongly Agree

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

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.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

Strongly 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.

Strongly 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 in the Constitution?

The constitution, according to the Founders was intended to bind and restrict the government from infringing on our freedoms. Madison said "...government itself was the greatest reflections of human nature." Jefferson went on to say that the intent in framing the constitution was "...bind him (politicians) down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." Separation of powers and the rigid guidelines of the constitution limit the power of government.

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 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.

Question 17 is incorrectly worded. Our founders did not set up a democracy. We are a constitutional republic. For question 18 1)God 2Voters (We the People) 3)Constitution 4)Congress 5)Supreme Court 6)Industry 7)Academia 8)Pro Sports 9) Media

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an Evangelical Christian. I was brought up in a Christian home and at the age of 15 in July of 1976 I asked The Lord Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. Romans 3:23 "For all have sinned and fall short of God's glory." Romans 6:23 says "the wages of sin is death but the free gift of God is eternal life through our Lord Jesus Christ." He is my one and only hope for salvation and I'm learning how to love him and listen to him on a daily basis.
