God and Our God Given Rights, Life--Liberty--Property.

15. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.

1. Our tax code, IRS and the free market place. 2. Education, returning to the states, support of trade schools, charter schools, private schools, vouchers and creating a partnership with business to bring new graduates from high school and college into the work force. 3. Our Veterans, without them nothing else matters. So we should treat them with that respect.

16. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

To save a woman's life, rape and incest. This decision is a decision that is between a woman and God. That decision should only be made after consultation with her family, spiritual leader, doctor and the father of the child.

17. 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, Voters, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in one God. Our constitution does not eliminate God from Government but only creates a separation that allows all of us to have an individual relationship with our God as we see fit. We are in a battle between good and evil and we need to vote our values. Leadership is described as where a person stand not during times of comfort and convenience but where a person stands during times of controversy and struggle. The problem our country is facing is a lack of morals in our elected leadership. If we continue to elect representatives that lack moral fiber we will continue to see our leaders fail during times of struggle and hardship, this is when we need our leaders the most. Government does not give us our rights, God has given us these rights and government is only there to help protect them. Our leaders are failing us.
