Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

I recognize that abortion is a sensitive issue and that people can hold good-faith views on all sides, I believe that government should be kept out of the matter, leaving the question to each person for their conscientious consideration. I could never imagine having to make that tough decision myself. But I don't want to tell somebody what to do in their life.

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

Governments throughout history have expanded their powers until they have authoritarian dictatorship.The constitution was designed to keep the federal government locked to a certain amount of limited functions and the bill of rights enumerates the rights of Americas, against a tyrannical government.

Additional comment from candidate:

Supporting my candidacy means supporting a drastically lower tax level, smaller government and more personal freedom across the board. We do not need career politicians telling us who we can love, how much money money we can keep, or what we can do with our own body. I will fight to keep the democrats out of your wallet and the republicans out of your bedroom.
