QUESTIONS FOR CANDIDATES
Question # 1:
What is the proper role of government?
Our Founders were clear that government was to reflect the will of the people. It is the people who give government its authority.
Question # 2:
As an elected public official, you will be required to take an oath to uphold and preserve the Constitution of the United States. When was the last time you took a serious look at the Constitution? Can you identify one or two areas where the Constitution is being violated today?
Question # 3:
What are your views about public debt? What is your opinion of using debt and how it should be paid off?
Our Forefathers warned about debt; it should be paid by the generation that created it!
Question # 4:
What is your view on unalienable rights stated by Jefferson in the Declaration?
These are rights given by our Creator. They cannot be taken by man without coming under the judgment of Him. This will tell you much about a candidate’s philosophy.
Question # 5:
Share your thoughts on: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
Solutions should be based on morality and virtue.
As a Nation, we seem to have misplaced the truth that government derives its powers by consent of the governed; by We the People! So very many elected officials clearly appear to have misplaced, or out right ignored, that our Forefathers sought for elected office those who would represent the citizens first, not their own careers, and they would accomplish this as “Servant Leaders.”
