What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
I believe the Founders understood the fatal tendency of mankind was the instinct to satisfy man's needs and desires with the least possible pain; basically, to take the path of least resistance. Our Republic was formed to limit this fatalistic tendency in an attempt to protect it's citizens from legal plunder.

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?
Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.
I don't have a voting record, and I don't actually have a way to validate why I am very conservative, but I'll explain how I vote in elections. I have mentors that follow politics very closely, and prior to elections, I schedule appointments with them to review the candidates. My goal is always to find the most Constitutionally Conservative candidates. I then share this with my wife, my voting age son, and my friends. While on the campaign trail, I explain what conservative means to me. I tell people conservative means to safe guard and protect your life, your liberty, and your property.

I was a successful leader in the Marine Corps; I am a successful leader and advocate in the Veteran non-profit world; I am a successful sales representative in the private sector. All of these things, have developed my ability to lead by example and produce results.

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?
Our country and our state is slowly and steadily slipping into socialism, and the current Republican leadership is continuing to fail all of us by not stringently adhering to their principles. I will be a different leader that redefines what a Conservative is and does in a way that even the opposite side of the spectrum will respect. I have already done this with some of the Democrats I have met while block walking in the district. It's all about being a Christian first, a Constitutional Conservative second, and a Republican who actually sticks by the principles that our party holds to be true.
