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

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Life of the mother

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

The lust for power. "The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny." James Madison, The Federalist No. 51

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior. My relationship with God through the Lord Jesus affects every element and part of my life, from my political policies and business practices to my personal relationships, principles and convictions.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Very Conservative

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I have publicly and consistently espoused and advocated the conservative principles of smaller, less intrusive and less invasive government. I've taught and produced courses on "The Origins of the Constitution" and have made the DVD series available to every high school and college in Arkansas at no charge. I've used the platform of The Institute for Constitutional Policy (of which I am chairman) to teach people the original intent of the Constitution and my platform at AR1.TV to publicly and consistency advocate conservative principles and policies of state and federal government.

Additional comment from candidate:

I am prepared to fight for a federal government small enough to fit inside the Constitution.
