Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Disagree

I am in favor of construction of a wall and other necessary infrastructure on our border that gives complete control over entering and exiting the United States.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I am uncomfortable with late term abortion; otherwise, there should be no restrictions and abortion should be allowed.

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

Mankind's willingness to be free to live and prosper and not be oppressed, and a history in Europe of monarchy.

I am spiritual in the sense that listening to music, exercising or meditating can help you relax and relieve stress and put you at another or different level of being.

Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which of these best describes you?

Moderate
