Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

Extremely rare, seldom to never cases. The attending physician should make every attempt to save both the child's and the mother's lives.

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

Man's fallen nature as a result of sin. It was important to recognize that there is a Creator who has given to all men inalienable rights, among which include life, liberty and property (pursuit of happiness). Government is instituted to protect these rights and was separated to limit their power by the consent of the governed. Separate branches were modeled after Isaiah 33:22, "The LORD is our judge (judicial), the LORD is our lawgiver (legislative), and the LORD is our king (executive).

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our LORD. Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried. He descended into Hell. On the third day He rose again! He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

When elected, we will take these personality traits with us: personal sacrifice, self discipline, and acceptance of responsibility. Character matters. I say "we" and "us" because I do not go into office to serve myself, instead the people go with me as I serve them. We are in a battle for the soul of this nation. Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, the right to keep and bear arms are under attack. I will be that warrior that will run towards the roar, stand in the gap, and protect and defend our Constitution, so help me God!
