What role should government play in boosting the economy?

I believe that government has a role in boosting the economy by: 1. provide an adequate infrastructure; 2. provide an educated workforce; 3. minimal regulations on business; 4. low tax rate; 5. then get out of the way and allow the free market to do it’s job.

Religious Liberty

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.

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with taxpayer or public funds.

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States and deserves the highest level of protection in the law.

I support expanding protections in employment and accommodations based on sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

If children are given instruction in sex education in public schools, it should not express a preference for abstinence but should be comprehensive, offering discussions on various types of sexual orientations and behaviors plus all types of contraceptives.

Strongly Disagree

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

1. The Constitution is very specific and direct regarding equal separation of powers between the three branches of government. (Checks and Balances) 2. Government DOES NOT have absolute power over it’s people. Our Founders were clear regarding our system of limited government and protection of unalienable rights in both the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.
