How would you promote healthcare coverage that is adequate, affordable and accessible for all?
The cost of health care needs to be made known to consumers and the number of health care providers needs to be increased. Insurers need to allow groups of people to become an association so that they can take advantage of the lower group rates rather than an individual rate. Such as what large companies are able to provide for their employees. Competition will bring down the price. The cost of malpractice insurance needs to be reviewed and the penalties for malpractice as well. The regulations need to be reviewed and lessened to allow physicians to practice medicine at much lower cost. This needs to be reviewed for all health care employees and health care providers. The court system and the review of claims needs to be more closely watched to ensure an individual receives just compensation for their loss.

What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers in the Constitution?
The Founders understood that man is basically not good, though men can perform good deeds. When it comes to power man has a problem of self control. They were influenced by reformed thinkers, the preachers of their times, the Bible, John Locke, Thomas Hobbs, Cicero and others. Their life experience shows how they employed and conjoined these principles to make government of the people smaller, better and less intrusive. We failed to keep some of their basic principles. Virtue and self control.
Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.
I am a Christian that believes Scripture is a special revelation of God speaking to both believer and none believer. Marriage is between a man and a woman and the Church is to encourage marriage and strengthen the family. The Church is to reach out and meet the needs of the local community. Each person is to work to meet their needs and their family needs. We as Christians are to work to influence all facets of society to live in virtue and self control. We are to assure that the individual and their inalienable rights are not removed or lessened in any manner.
