18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I see religion as a form of philosophy. I do not interpret it literally. I believe in objective truth. I support individual freedom and limited government based on republican principles. I do not support tyranny of the majority imposing its will on sovereign individuals. Sovereign citizens should be free to live their lives according to their own terms with limited government interference. I am strongly opposed to government monopolies and occupational licenses. One of our most important freedoms is the right to contract. The government's role is to protect our individual rights (life, liberty and property). Natural law trumps man-made law. So long as a person does not infringe on another person's natural rights, individuals should be free to do whatever they want without any government interference. The government has no right to regulate a woman's body, to impose limitations on citizens' right to marry or to enter into contracts.
