Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Only if the woman's life is in danger.

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

Evil, despotism

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Christian. I believe that there is only one true God. Though man tries through good behavior or self denial, man can't appease God, that appeasement of a holy God is found only in faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I am called to live my life in a manner that reflects that belief. I am called to make disciples of Jesus.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Very Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce government regulation. A true free market. Eliminate or greatly reduce welfare and public assistance.

How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?

Reduce government regulation. Increase competition. A true free market in health care will drive the costs down. Government regulation is what caused/is causing the costs to skyrocket.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

No role. The government has one purpose. To protect our basic rights.

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

Life experience. God doesn't call the qualified He qualifies the called. People are tired of politicians that work their way up the ladder. They want someone that can relate to them. Someone that understands what its like to live paycheck to paycheck. I own more than I owe because I've followed conservative principles and gotten out of debt.
