Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?
There are no circumstances where Abortion is acceptable. And, the only time a Dr. should be allowed to give treatment that will knowingly end a pregnancy is when the mother’s life is in imminent, severe danger. Never should abortion be allowed simply to end a pregnancy that is unwanted.
What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. In our natural state mankind is selfish, prideful, arrogant, and our hearts are wicked, there is no good in us. Only through the saving grace of Jesus Christ is any righteousness found in man. That is why the founders limited how much power any one government group or individual was given.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
I believe we are in the middle of a volatile time in the United States. Christian values are openly under attack, integrity, self-control, common sense, and honesty have been declared all but dead by Hollywood and the mainstream media. I have no personal political aspirations other than to serve those in my community. I am running for this office because I believe there is a deep need in America, a need for Christian leadership, from individuals willing to sacrifice for future generations. I do not know the planes the Lord has for this nation or for myself, but am confident in his unfailing love, and will continue to seek and serve him in whatever path he leads me and my family down.
