Darryl Glenn on Principles & Values

 

 


God is the highest authority in my life

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

Glenn: James Madison described the need for a separation of powers in Federalist Paper No. 51 when he stated, "men are not angels" and explained that the separation of powers was required to prevent an accumulation and consolidation of power by any one man or department. The endless attempts of the current administration to overreach and exert power beyond what is constitutionally proscribed has demonstrated just how right Madison was.

Q: Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Glenn: I am a Christ follower and God is the highest authority in my life.

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

Glenn: Very Conservative

Calls himself a Christian constitutional conservative

"I worry about the polarizing national debate over the core principles that govern our country," Glenn said. "Parents and grandparents are rightly concerned about mounting economic burdens facing their children and grandchildren. Hard-working individuals and families struggle with budgets that barely get them from one paycheck to the next. Many people are dismayed as they watch their hard-earned money get wasted on government excess."

Glenn, a Republican since high school, is a member of New Life Church in Colorado Springs. He calls himself a Christian constitutional conservative and will support policy that enables everyone to pursue their American dream by ensuring economic freedom, restoring the traditional balance of power among federal branches of government, mandating that government live within its means, strengthening our nation's security and providing for international defense.
