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.

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

The more people live by Judeo-Christian values, the less government is needed.

Strongly Agree

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

It was their Theology. They understood that every man and woman were/are created in the image of God. Salvation and the presence of the Holy Spirit is available to all, not just the ones in power and in the good favors of the King. They knew that mankind is born sinful, they are inclined to sinful ways and left unchecked would create tyrannical leaders. They wanted man to govern themselves for the most part, relying on their virtue, principles, and morals to lead them.

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, Voters, Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. I believe that Salvation is through faith in Jesus Christ, alone. The only God is the Yahweh, identified in the Bible. I believe the Bible is God's word without error and divinely inspired. Man kind is born sinful and is in need of savior.

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 believe in limited government, that is what our founders intended. I believe in free market capitalism. The first to teach it were the Salamanician Monks, it is most definitely a Bible based form of Economics. The Bible teaches a Theology of Work, it teaches about personal responsibility and neighbor caring for neighbor, not the government. The church is charged with being the primary caregiver to the poor, widows, needy and orphans, no one else. The Church needs to take that back. I believe the 2nd Amendment protects all the others and it was not written to protect our hunting rights.

Additional comment from candidate:

I see this job as one of Service to the people. My job is to represent the people to Austin. Unfortunately, we have a representative that is representing Austin to us. I am tired of Republican leadership that is content with small victories or just passing a bill out of one chamber. I want to help advance our Conservative agenda and make Texas stronger.
