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

1. Repealing and replacing Obamacare is important because people should have the freedom to choose any health insurance plan that satisfies their physical, spiritual, mental and economic needs. 2. Eliminating excessive taxation and regulation is important because this will promote hiring by businesses and innovation by entrepreneurs. 3. Eliminating deficit spending by the federal government is important because such spending will lead to excessive taxation, the weakening of our national defense and a rupture of the safety net for the most needy in our country.

Abortion should not be allowed except when it is clear that the life of the mother is at stake.

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe the Bible is true and that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. I love God. I love others as I love myself. I love others as Jesus loved others.

I believe that I am expressing the love of God when I give others the benefit of the doubt.
