Questionnaire

 1. United States Constitution 

I agree with Article VI of the United States Constitution, i.e., there are three and only three things which constitute “the supreme Law of the Land”; namely, the written text of the U.S. Constitution itself, Federal Laws made in pursuance of the written text of the U.S. Constitution, and all Treaties made under the Authority of the United States which are consistent with the written text of the U.S. Constitution. I reject the judicial supremacist view that U.S. Supreme Court Opinions can ever be “the supreme Law of the Land”. Therefore Roe and Obergefell are not “the supreme Law of the Land.”

 

YES _______     NO _______     UNDECIDED _______

 

2. Federal Personhood Bill

I support Federal Personhood legislation such as H.R. 426 ( www.Congress.gov ), sponsored by U.S. Rep. Jody Hice ( R-GA ) to recognize the legal personhood of all preborn human beings, at fertilization, without “exception”, by Federal Statute, and will promote, advocate, and sign such legislation, if elected as U.S. President.

 

YES _______     NO _______     UNDECIDED _______

 

3. Federal Personhood Bill

If presently serving in elected office in the United States Senate, I will at the earliest opportunity ( NLT January 15, 2016 ) introduce Federal Personhood legislation in the U.S. Senate, such as H.R. 426 or a similar principled Personhood bill, with no “exceptions”.

 

YES _______     NO _______     UNDECIDED _______

 

4. United States Constitution / Federal Personhood Bill

As spelled out in the text of Article III, Section 2 of the United States Constitution, the U.S. Congress has the authority and power to make exceptions to the appellate jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court; and, under both Article III and Article I, Section 8, Clause 9, has the authority and power to limit the jurisdiction of the lower federal courts. Therefore I would support Federal Personhood legislation such as H.R. 426, with this additional provision of restricting the jurisdiction of the federal courts to determine the constitutionality of Federal Personhood legislation such as H.R. 426 or similar bill(s).

 

YES _______     NO _______     UNDECIDED _______
