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

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only in case of rape or if the mother's life is in danger, and then, only after the putative mother is required to view an ultrasound of the fetus, preferably with her doctor, pastor, and/or priest if applicable.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God the Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. I believe that Jesus was born of a virgin, was crucified, buried and rose from the dead on the third appointed day. He came to give Himself as a living sacrifice to all who believe in Him and accept Him as their Lord and Savior. We are saved by His grace alone, and no work of mankind can save our souls.

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.

By my willingness to run for State Representative as a conservative Republican twice. Also, by supporting Rand Paul for United States Senator, and Allison Ball for Kentucky State Treasurer. Most recently, by attending, meeting and greeting voters @ our county's Presidential caucus March, 2016 where I was introduced to voters as the Republican nominee for State Representative for the 95th District.

E-mail address and phone number for voters to reach you.

Additional comment from candidate:

Eastern Kentucky in general, and Floyd County in particular, deserve better representation than they have received over the past several years. While President Obama has been in office, his administration has decimated the coal industry. It has completely destroyed a way of life enjoyed by thousands of families with no viable option to replace it. The former Kentucky Governor and the democratically controlled House of Representatives have done little to counter the Obama offensive on coal. The current Speaker has voiced his strong support for Hillary Clinton who has publically expressed her intent to continue the assault on the coal industry. Kentucky deserves better. Working across party lines to balance the budget and aggressively exploring options to expand the economic base are mandatory for east Kentucky to survive, especially if Hillary Clinton is elected this fall.
