Questionnaire

Please note: Responses are entered electronically by the candidate and are listed verbatim.

Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

Disagree

Election of judges by the people for a definite term of office is the best way to select judges.

Agree

More restrictive gun control laws are needed to protect public safety.

Agree

Government should enforce laws designed to protect the border and to prevent illegal entry into the country.

Agree

People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Agree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

Strongly Disagree

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

Disagree

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

Strongly Disagree

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.

Strongly Disagree

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Neutral

Free-market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

Strongly Disagree

Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Disagree

The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Strongly Agree

Business owners should be required by law to bake cakes, provide flower arrangements, etc., for same-sex weddings, even when these activities would infringe on their sincerely-held religious beliefs.

Agree

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

Physician-assisted suicide should be legal.

Strongly Agree

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

Strongly Disagree

Islamic law (Sharia) does not pose a threat to the United States and its Constitution.

Strongly Agree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with public funds.

Strongly Disagree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

Strongly Agree

Planned Parenthood should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Disagree

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

The Founders of our country had come from monarchies that ruled without interference. That led to very corrupt leaders that did not represent the will of the people. When creating our government they wanted checks and balances so that no one entity was able to completely control the government by themselves.

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.

The Voters, The Constitution, The Supreme Court, and The Congress.

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I believe that a woman has the right to decide that for herself. I do not believe we should be regulating a woman's vagina. I would like to see less abortions though which is why I support sexual education classes, free birth control, and unrestricted access to emergency contraception. We also need to fix our adoption system so that it can become a viable option for those wishing to carry to term, but unable to raise a baby themselves.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Humanist which means I believe that we must value each other and live in peace. There is so much hate, greed, and violence in the world, but we still have time to fix that if we start now.

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

Very Liberal

Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

I do not have the pleasure of a track record yet. What I do have are ideas and principals. I will not waiver on trying to create a better future. I believe that in order to do that we must become a more progressive state and nation.

Additional comment from candidate:

Our state has been falling behind the rest of the nation. That is due to the current state legislature we have. If we want to change course and start catching up we must elect fresh faces and new ideas. I hope voters in my district and around the state will take a good look at the role their Representative has played in the down slide of our state and vote out those responsible. Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I hope to earn your support in this election.
