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?

The only circumstances in which abortion should be allowed, would be to protect the life of the mother.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I ascribe to biblical Christianity, which, in context, would follow the traditional, Judeo-Christian values upon which our Nation and Commonwealth were founded. I value the teachings of Scripture and the sanctity of life, marriage and the family.

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.

As to what is publicly available, I served with Biblical Family Ministries traveling the country to preach on Marriage, Family and child-training. I have ministered at Lebanon Christian Academy. I organized the "Tea Party Welcome" for Senator Arlen Specter in 2009 to encourage his vote against the unconstitutional "Obamacare", the Affordable Healthcare Act.
