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

1. Reduce the size of the Federal Government 2. Balance the Federal Budget 3. Reduce taxes. Our government is far too big, far too expensive, and far too likely to infringe upon our rights, and should be significantly reduced in size.

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

This should not be a Federal issue. It should be left to state legislatures and courts.

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.

The Constitution is the highest authority. Congress, the Supreme Court, and the voters all have assigned roles under the Constitution, but none, overall, has "more authority" than than the others.

17. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe all citizens should be free to worship, or not worship, as they choose. I will not pass any law restricting the right of citizens to worship as they choose.
