Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

reluctantly & with reservations... life of Mother...

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Everything within our power. Use economic pressure to tell other countries that we will not tolerate any support, condoning our tolerating of any form of terrorism, including radical Islamic terrorism... Educate our children as to what makes our country great, it's fundamental values as set forth by our founders. Put American values and the teaching of same back in the classrooms, starting with the elementary schools...rw

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

They knew that mankind that is governing would tend to want more & more power... they also knew that ultimate power belongs to Almighty GOD and that HE alone is where true liberty emanates from. Further, that this truth should be internalized and taught at every level...rw

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

You've heard it said that "government 's role is to provide an environment where business can thrive?" I say that's wrong... my belief is that government's role is to KEEP from providing an environment where businesses CAN'T thrive! Businesses will create their own successes (environment)...rw

And stop Congress from robbing Peter to pay Paul... aka Social Security Fund...rw

What education or experience qualifies you to hold the office for which you seek election?

My world view... aligning with our Founder's beliefs as set forth in the Declaration of Independence, Constitutions, Federalist Papers & other writings.
