Strongly Disagree

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

None. Life begins at conception. The child should not pay with his or her life, for issues surrounding the mother. The child has equal right to life with his or her parents under the Constitution and before God. "Life of the Mother" exception is a false qualification.

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

Humans are not angels so government is necessary to protect God-given rights. And government is not an angel, and should be limited.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

My life is animated by an encounter with Jesus the Son of God. My personal relationship with Jesus is characterized by a daily vibrant life with him through his Spirit who also lives inside of me. His life and his Word, embodied in the Law, Prophets, Gospels, and Letters are truth, and reliable guides for my personal life and for government.

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.

Ongoing involvement with the organizations previously listed. Past pro-life action. Sending 4 of my 5 daughters to Hillsdale College, one of who is employed there.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Reduce regulation on business. Allow all states to be right-to-work states.

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

Allow the health insurance industry to operate as any other industry, to sell to anyone in the U.S. This is to say, de-regulate this industry, allowing the insurance industry to operate in a free market.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

As little as possible. Reducing regulation and taxation enabling a supply side economy. Maintaining free trade thus enabling U.S. industries to compete globally, thus improving goods & services and economizing producer and consumer prices.

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

Master of Business Administration. Successful self-employment for 25 years. 5 healthy and successful daughters. Consistent civic involvement and political campaign support over 35 years.

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