Priorities: be a good Christian, husband, father and citizen

Q: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Bacon: I am a Christian saved by faith and His grace. My priorities in life are to be a good Christian, husband, father and citizen. I start each day by reading a chapter from the Old Testament and one from the New Testament. My favorite verses are Matthew 6:19-20, "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal."

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

Bacon: Our Founders feared the thirst for power would result in tyranny if the Constitution was not carefully crafted. That is why we are not a "pure democracy".

Bacon: Very Conservative

Q: Please defend your answer to the previous question by referencing your publicly available track record.

Bacon: My parents and four grandparents were Goldwater fans and I was raised reading National Review and Human Events. I campaigned for local Republicans growing up and was a supporter of Ronald Reagan in 1976 when I was 13 years old. I was an active College Republican and interned after college with Congressman Ed Madigan. I'm a member of Heritage Foundation, and endorsed by the Concerned Women for America PAC. I have written many editorials supporting conservative policies and candidates that are public record.

Certify 2020 Presidential election as fully & fairly counted.

Bacon voted NAY blocking certification of the Electoral vote

Explanation of 1/6/21 Electoral Certification, by Emily Brooks, Washington Examiner:Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Paul Gosar led an objection to counting Electoral College votes from the state of Arizona, the first formal objection to state results in a series of moves that will delay the certification of Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential election over President Trump. Cruz is advocating for an `emergency 10-day audit` of election returns in disputed states. The usually ceremonial joint session of Congress that convenes to count and accept Electoral College votes will be put on hold as the House and Senate separately debate the objection.
