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.


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 The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.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

Strongly 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 Agree

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?

People are created in God's image. I do not mean that we necessarily LOOK like him: we reflect God's image in us by free will and creativity, which are the first human attributes exercised by Adam and Eve in the garden. America's Founders knew, from reading John Locke and others, and from their own hearts, that man can only live in peace and prosperity if they are free to exercise their own decisions, and protect their own property. This is the path to peace, prosperity, and salvation: Liberty.

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 Individual (you missed that one :) Voters Constitution Congress Supreme Court

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

No, none, never. An embryo is a human being from conception, both in God's eyes, and scientifically.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am an Orthodox Christian, meaning that I belong to the longest tradition and transmission of the Gospel and God's Church. I believe in the entire Nicene Creed. I accept the authority of God via Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit guiding the church and its members. I attend church services, weekend and weekday, and serve Him by teaching Adult Education, reading in church, chanting, serving as Outreach chair, and ringing bells. I also do my best to love my fellow human beings and not judge them: we are taught to hate the sin, not the sinner, and Christ clearly shows us the way through His ministry 2 millenia ago and through God-inspired people throughout the centuries, and today.
