Strongly Agree

5. Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry into the country.

Strongly Agree

6. People should be able to vote without photo identification.


7. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.


8. Marriage is a union of one man and one woman. No government has the authority to alter this definition.


9. Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

11. Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Strongly Agree

13. Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

No Answer

14. Washington State should not be suing any businesses that prefer not to be part of a same-sex wedding.

Strongly Agree

15. Religious freedom is our most foundational freedom and deserves added protection in our state and federal constitutions.


16. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.


17. Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

18. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?

People tend to act in their own best interests (for them and their family). But power corrupts some people and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Freedom is key to a Republican form of government and when the government is too powerful the people lose their freedom.

19. 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, Constitution, Supreme Court, Congress, Individual Voters.

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

No Answer

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God the father and in his son, Jesus Christ. I believe there is a Holy Spirit that is with me always. I believe in individual rights from government interference. The rights listed in our Constitution need to be protected.
