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

What is the best way to bring down unemployment?

1. Monetary Policy - low interest rates (healthy balance rate). 2. Reduce Taxes - e.g. corporate taxes and income taxes. 3. Education and training to help reduce structural unemployment. 4. Incentives to encourage firms to invest in depressed areas. 5. Address minimum wage to reduce real wage unemployment. 6. More flexible labor markets, to make it easier to hire and fire workers.

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

1. If we can reduce administrative cost, healthcare can be affordable to more people. 2. Increase competition within states.

What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I believe the government should have some role to prevent drastic highs and lows in the economy. This is a balancing act between monetary and fiscal policies. When the Fed believes that inflation is a problem, it will use contractionary policy to decrease the money supply and raise interest rates. To counter a recession, it will use expansionary policy to increase the money supply and reduce interest rates. When the country is in a recession, the government could also increase spending, reduce taxes, or do both to expand the economy. However, in periods of inflation, the government could decrease spending or increase taxes, or both.

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

My eighteen years in manufacturing and aerospace; has developed a strong character to lead and motivate others to be their best, develop and implement policy, be accountable for decisions, and build coalitions to develop creative solutions to complex problems.
