Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

Strongly Agree

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.

(Did not answer)

Under what circumstances should abortion be allowed?

It should not ever be allowed. When a woman conceives a child, a human life is at stake, and a child's life has begun. I believe that every child is a keeper from the moment of conception, is precious, irreplaceable, and has a purpose for living. I also do not believe that any person, any court, or any country has the right to take somebody's life because they want to. Therefore, I believe that every form of infanticide should be abolished from the face of the earth. The President of the United States should issue an Emancipation Proclamation, and declare all unborn children, from conception, to be henceforward and forever free.

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

The United States should keep common-sense politicians (otherwise called Republicans) in power. We have to eliminate terrorists. We also need to know who is entering our country and vet them judiciously.

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

The desire for power and control.
