Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Strongly Agree

2. Election of judges by the people for a definite term of office is the best way to select judges.

Strongly Agree

3. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

4. Efforts to bring Islamic law (shariah) to America do not pose a threat to our country and its Constitution.


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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Disagree

9. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

10. There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.


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

Strongly Disagree

12. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

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.


14. The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Disagree

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 within the Constitution?

They feared the consolidation of power under one branch or one person. There is much argument over whether power corrupts or the corrupt seek power. I believe the latter is the most common case and so did our founding fathers.

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.

Natural law states that no one has dominion over man and that yet man is ruled by natural law. That natural law outlines rights well beyond life, liberty, and property. There is no order of dominion that has a right to violate these natural rights.

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

We are not going to get rid of abortion no matter how illegal we make it. A doctor should have the power to make a decision to terminate a pregnancy in order to save the mothers life, and outside of that exception I will oppose any taxpayer dollars for any organizations that provide abortions. Additionally I want to end property and income tax which opens the charities working to reduce abortions to have more money for their work.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
