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

Our system was created with checks and balances to make sure that there were irrefutable boundaries so that power could not be massed by any one person or branch of government. The checks and balances are a key constitutional provision of our democracy.

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.

God, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I would support a bill that had exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God and that Christ is our savior. I have worshiped for almost my entire life at Holy Name of Jesus Church, and I believe in the Judeo-Christian values that this nation was founded upon. While my faith will not dictate how I govern, my faith will always be with me in every decision I make.

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 a record of faith and service in my private life and a fiscally responsible record in my business career. I've worked for 35 years to create jobs, balance budgets, meet payroll, and build communities. In my private life, my family always taught me to give back to the community that raised you and the people who need your help. My wife Maria and I have tried to do that and to be examples to our children that you should lead with a servant's heart.
