Results of M.A.P.S Candidate Questionnaire for Michael Shmina Candidate for 32nd District House Representative 1. What are your reasons for running for office?
I am running for office because I am ashamed that my kids will live in a Michigan and America that is less free and allows them to keep fewer fruits of their own labor

than I experienced at their age. I will work to change it. I am running to cut taxes, reduce government, and increase our liberties. If I may, I would like to say that I am forty-three years old and have never been a government employee. I have always been a Republican, but I will fight those in my party that are merely time-servers in Lansing and government. We need to return to the spirit of our country’s Founders, The Declaration, and The Constitution. I am disturbed and angered by our continued loss of freedoms, and know this is the right time to run for office, to win, and to defeat this creeping socialism, this overturning of our government’s very fabric, this Obamanation. I’m running to help protect our future as a free country and our birthrights as Americans. 2. 9 3. 10 4. 8 5. 10 6. 10 7. 10 8. 9 9. 9 10. What is your definition of limited government? The federal government should take care of national issues, the state government should take care of state issues, and local governments should take of local issues. I believe this is a fundamental principle of our government’s founders. In other words, if some county in California wants to increase taxes to widen a local road or provide

sex-change operations for its employees, it’s not any concern of the other 49 states, until that California county relies on federal funding, including those originating from Michigan funds, to cover other holes in their budget. 11. 7 12. 10
