Congress should repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).

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

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

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


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.

God Voters Constitution

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Rape and life of the mother

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in Jesus Christ, through him all things are possible. Although compromised by man's sin and disobedience, God made everything good. He sent his son Jesus Christ to redeem the sin of man, a second chance. God created each of us with specific talents and abilities and we are called to use these talents and abilities to serve God and be a witness of his love. It is with this understanding and foundation that I am able to lift myself when mentally defeated, as I know he is in control, there is nothing that happens that is not his will and I remind myself to get out of the way.

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 have no publicly available track record other than to say I've been married to my husband for over twenty years. They were not all easy years, but divorce is not something that I personally believe in unless abuse is involved. We have three children that have been raised in the church. I believe in personal responsibility and detest the over reach of government in my life, including health, education and property. Our founding fathers established this nation as a Republic not a democracy for good reason. Unfortunately progressives have manipulated the system to have so many become dependent on them for day-to-day living.
