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

It is to God's and natural law that our Government be limited with the checks and balances'. Our Founder's believed that a Constitutional Republic should be for the people not the powerful collective.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I live my life based on the teaching of the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule. I believe in total Honesty,Integrity maintaining your core values.

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.

That would best be asked of the people that know me. My Father was a very conservative Primitive Baptist. He taught us nothing is free, work is a virtue. Believe that God will take care of those who help them self. I was appointed to the Board of Directors of the Dept. of Children and Families to Implement the Faith Based Care and welfare to work programs that was 1996. I was a proven Conservative then and I'm even more so today.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Make all able body people work. If you are on any type of public assistance you most work min. 20 hr a week. Government should not be a nanny state. I own a small business for 30 yrs. I can not get workers. Lowering taxes was a wonderful thing. There is no reason everyone is not working.

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

One totally doing away with the ACA .Government should never involved in Health care insurance business. Give Insurance Company's the right to sell across State line. Allow Assc. health care groups.Allow people to chose the plans they want.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

Shrink the size of Government,keep Taxes low,cut the regulations that are killing our business.

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

While it is true I don't have a College degree, I have been in the political process for 25 years. I have been appointed to serve on numerous Boards and commissions. I have writing Ordinances for Polk County and crafted Bills that have gone through the legislature. When we have elections we only have limited choices. But the Elected Official's have the whole electorate to chose from. I have been honored to have been chosen to serve. I am prepared to serve in the Fla. House.
