Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

All life is precious and the devil is relentless. One thing we do know. "And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." ALL THINGS.

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

The understanding that man is fallible. God has written His word on the heart of man.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

The Word of God is true. God created the world and all that is in it. Jesus Christ died on a cross and rose from the dead 3 days later and has covered my sins with His blood. It is ONLY through faith in Jesus Christ that man is saved from eternal separation from God. His gift is wonderful and it is free and open to all. I strive to live a Christ centered life. Though I often stumble and fall, my eyes are fixed on Jesus and He patiently leads me to repentance. God is good.

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.

(Did not answer)

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

A vibrant and free economy. I think the State has a limited role. Public safety, public education (debatable) and infrastructure. The State should tax it's citizens accordingly to meet the needs of the above mentioned as fairly as possible. I think if the State does these things well, the whole of the people will be better off.

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

(Did not answer)

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should not attempt to manipulate the economy. The government should simply implement a fair tax system and uphold the rule of law. Tampering with the economy is inherently unfair.

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

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

I will always be open and accessible. I have a desire for everyone to do well and pursue happiness in life. I look forward to representing district 15. We live in the greatest country in the world. God has blessed our nation and He will continue to do so if we honor him.
