God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Believe in higher power, God, our freedoms and rights are from God our Creator. I believe in hard work and helping people when in need but not a handout. Our free enterprise system and government has provided for people to chase their dreams and provided opportunities. Our capitalist system is the best in the world to provide citizens to be successful and achieve a high standard of living and quality of life. Limited government allows for individual success. A government too big is a government that can take from its citizens.
