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

Defense of our Country: Strong Military Defense, Securing our Borders and reforming Immigration, Protecting our 2nd Amendment - We must fight to keep our right for each and every American to bear arms. Reduce the National Debt - Our national debt is a real and present danger to our freedom, both from a national security position as we owe more and more money to foreign countries, as well as, saddling our children and grandchildren with the burden of repayment and a higher tax burden which will negatively impact their standard of living. Pass a balanced budget amendment. Repeal of the Affordable Healthcare Act known as Obamacare - I believe in an open market plan that makes healthcare more competitive which leads to better access for all.

I do not support abortion.

17. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in The One True God, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I believe in Jesus Christ, The Son of God who is My Lord and Savior. I believe that we are each called to a higher purpose to serve one another as part of God's plan. My values are based on my Christian principles and my traditional upbringing in a regular hard working American Military family where Faith, Family, Freedom and Free Enterprise are the ideals we held dear then and still. Where these values are worth standing for.
