Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
As a Christ follower, I have gratefully accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. By grace alone, I have been saved from my natural, sinful state through His substitutionary death at Calvary, thus restoring me to a right-standing relationship with God. I live in a God-centered universe and I see His intervention in our world as active and ongoing, according to His plan. I believe the Bible is the inerrant word of God from Gen. 1:1 to Rev. 22:21. My values and moral compass are aligned with what the Bible teaches. I am pro-life, pro-family, and pro-traditional (one man/one woman) marriage. I make no exceptions here, as these things are unambiguously biblical. I believe our nation was founded as a Christian nation, with His explicit blessing. As we are now rapidly running away from that origin, we are in danger of losing His blessings described in Deut. 8:19-20.
Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Though I have not been elected to office yet and had a chance to establish a voting record on the issues, I have personally supported conservative candidates and helped them to get elected to office. I have been a member of conservative organizations such as Heritage Foundation and the NRA. My personal Twitter account, @Tomzzzdoc, will reveal a consistently conservative world view that began with the tweet "I support Joe Wilson!" on September 9, 2009. In the course of this election cycle, I have interviewed with many of the most respected conservative organizations in Texas, and they have all, without exception, chosen me over my opponent as the true conservative in this race. As have two of my original three opponents, upon exiting the race, declared me to be the conservative choice, and endorsed me.
