Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self-interest into the most productive economic system there is.

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.

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

Having experienced religious persecution in England, it created a strong desire to establish a nation where folks could be FREE to choose their God. Any time one feels someone else's religion is being forced on them, tyranny will follow. Most folks have forgotten and have not taught their children, what true sacrifice looks and feels like.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

LIfe long Christian: Methodist til 5th grade, Missouri-Synod Lutheran to present. Belief in God establishes and maintains a "moral" compass and guide to how to live life and treat others. I can site many examples where I have witnessed God's Glory or have felt or seen His Guiding Hand at work in my life and those I call friends and 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.

You could look at ALL my votes on the Waukesha County Board and Committee activities. Friends would tell you they clearly understand my conservative perspective often times before an issue even comes up. My fellow County Board members would ALL tell you, I do my due diligence and I am a true Conservative. I spend your money like it resides in my wallet!
