Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

God grants free-will to us, the creatures of his creation. Therefore each mother should have jurisdiction over her own body and anything inside her body. Defending the mothers jurisdiction over whatever is inside her body, decreases the burden on the taxpayers. Society should wait until after the birth of the baby, before gradually growing its jurisdiction along with the parents over this new human being.

What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

Like President Trump, I also saw the TV news coverage showing the Muslims across the river in New Jersey celebrating the destruction of the twin towers in New York City and the murder of about 5,000 people. The following day, my TV stopped showing the joy and celebrating. This censorship of reality caused me to lower my opinion of the news media. Instead of political correctness, the media should report unpleasant reality to the citizens. Also consider the news media's censorship of the bad things that are happening in, for example, Sweden. I think President Trump is on the right track, trying to decrease the number of immigrants to the United States who might attack you and who also will probably go on welfare to be supported by you. We should not import a growing welfare and crime burden.

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

It is said that concentrated power corrupts. Therefore America's Founders, using checks and balances, tried to spread the power out among the people. Can we keep the democratic republic that the Founders gave us.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God. In my search for God and my wishful thinking, I study science and the Universe. To study God, study God's creation, starting with science. The Universe and the laws of science are magical. I study economics in order to learn how to increase prosperity for the workers created by God on our Spaceship Earth. I want us to become good stewards of our Spaceship Earth. I want us to stop the extermination of God's created wild life on our planet. I want us to learn how to live in orbital space around our planet and around our Sun in the habitable, Goldilock zone. It is my wishful hope that God has given us the intelligence to do so.

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?

Somewhat Conservative

Please provide publicly available information validating your answer to the previous question.

Please google Goodspaceguy on Google and on YouTube. I am known for wanting to abolish the job-destroying minimum wage of the Command Economy, and replacing the job-destroying minimum wage with the many free-market wages of individuals as determined by individual supply and demand so that it becomes easy to get jobs, and to reduce the welfare burden, and raise the living standard high, high up into the sky. On the internet, there is also evidence that I, Goodspaceguy, have been advocating for space colonization in orbital space around our planet. Using privately owned habitats in conjunction with the International Space Station, it is time for us to be using the low-cost method of learning how to live in space before we go on to Mars. We should lead in peaceful, orbital space colonization, instead of leaving it to some other nation to lead above our heads.

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

The Free Market Economy (when allowed to function) can provide better health care for the workers than the always out of balance Command Economy of socialism. Allow the Free Market to function so that the living standard and health care can be improved.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

The government should decrease its sabotage of Free Market prices and operations. The government should defend the operation of the Free Market Economy, which is the economic system which produces the higher living standard. The big government Command Economy always throws the economy out of balance, decreases incentive, spreads the poverty, expands boondoggles, and lowers the living standard below the higher living standard produced by the voluntary, competitive, Free Market Economy.

What changes should be made to the tax code?

The tax burden should be reduced so that profits increase and jobs increase. Businesses increase hiring when businesses discover more profit to be earned. When profits are attacked and decreased, jobs disappear. Profits create jobs. Losses create lay-offs. By taxing less, we get greater incentive and prosperity.

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

Abolish the job-destroying minimum wage so that profits from hiring can increase. If profits increase, competing employers are forced to hire more workers in the attempt to earn more of the increasing, potential profits. When there are profits to earn, employers compete to hire the available workers.

How would you guarantee Social Security benefits for future generations?

Get more of the welfare recipients into jobs so that they too can contribute to funding the Social Security benefits. I am focused on increasing the size of the labor force in order to raise the workers' living standard. In order to eat the cake, we first have to make and bake the cake.

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

At university, I have studied many subjects including business, economics, and profits. Over the years, based on my studies, I have lived the simple life-style of a student, and I have invested, and I have become prosperous. By using Free Market Economics and upward advancing technology, I want to help make it possible for the workers to raise their living standard up into the sky. I know that both the Free Market Economy and a rising technology can raise the living standard of the workers.

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

I want us to make this 21st Century, the century that we, part of the creations of God, learn how to live in orbital space around our Spaceship Earth and around our Sun. If we don't do this, our civilization could be wiped out by a killer asteroid, as happened to the dinosaurs, before the rise of the age of mammals.
