Questionnaire

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.

Strongly Disagree

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 Disagree

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

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.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

Agree

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

Strongly Agree

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.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

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?

Since men are not angels and have the tendency to sin or go astray due to our fallen nature, we need a perfect document to provide us with a system of checks and balances. This structure of government prevents a few bad apples from corrupting the whole country.

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, Voters, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court

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

We are all sons and daughters of our Father in Heaven and I believe in treating every person, born or un-born, as such. I support equal treatment for the mother and child and I do not believe children should be automatically aborted under any circumstances. Instead, doctors should do everything they can to preserve both lives.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian who believes in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I believe that by grace we are saved after all we can do. I testify that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and that one day, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. Decisions I make while in office will be done after I seek divine guidance from Heavenly Father through sincere prayer.
