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

The Founders look at and drew from a number of different things. They looked at the current affairs and events in Europe at the time. They looked at the history of the United States to that time. They look Europe's background. And they looked back at the rise and fall of both the Roman and Greek Empires. Al of these things are where they found and gathered the foundation to from our country in the manner in which they did. They also sought guidance from God.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

In my opinion never. If the mothers life is at risk that is a discussion that needs to be made by the mother,God, with consulted in put from her priest or minister, the father (if around), the doctors with a Christian background view of life, and other close knowledgeable family members giving support to the mother.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My beliefs and values have been formed and are derive from my Catholic up bringing. My reading and study of the Bible, and my prayers to God for guidance. This question has been asked here and so have a few others, so I offer an answer. I am really for the most part a very private person. I do when I talk inject my beliefs and values in to every answer I give in someway. I do things because it is the right thing to do not for recognition or to help get elected to an office or any other type of thing.

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 look at being very conservative as a brief description of my morals, values and beliefs. These are the fabric of who I am. It is not something to be defended. Without any kind of compass to guide you can never do well, or know the difference between right or wrong.

Additional comment from candidate:

There have been many questions asked here and so I offer an answer. I am really for the most part a very private person. I do when I talk inject my morals, beliefs and values in to about every answer I give in someway. I do things like volunteering to help, giving money, or other things; not to boast. But rather I do them because it right; and it is the right thing to do; not for recognition or to help get elected to an office or any other type of thing. This is a lot of what is missing in our country today. People are doing to many things because of how good they will look to others. Not because it is the right thing to do.So if because I have chosen to not list all the work, giving of money and other such things, I have done; so as to not be boastful or want to exploit it to get elected. Then it is the reason one chooses to not vote for me or endorse me, so be it.
