Don Bacon on Principles & Values

 

 


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".

I was raised reading National Review and Human Events

Q: Considering all issues (social, economic, national security, etc.), which political philosophy best describes you?

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. I volunteer or donate to the following organizations: Assure and Essential Pregnancy Services, Good News Jail Ministry, Gideons, Youth for Christ, CRU, and am a Central Committee member of our County Republican Party.
