14. What in the nature of mankind caused America’s Founders to carefully define, separate, and limit powers within the Constitution?

Human nature is that individuals have a strong propensity to dominate others (SIN). Understanding that the founders crafted the Constitution with the Bill of Rights to protect the citizens from the tyranny of government and built safe guards for each branch of government to defend itself from the other branches.

15. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.

1. We have a progressive administrative state that has been constructed by both parties over the last 100 years. The best way to illustrate this is article 1 section 1 of the Constitution, "All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States". Continuing on explaining how legislation has to be passed by both houses and signed by the president. That is not what we've had in Washington for a long time. Right now many agencies like IRS, EPA, all pass regulations and enforce those regulations never passed by the house or senate, simply enacted by the agencies themselves in direct violation of the Constitution. 2. The national debt. Many countries have destroyed their currency and life savings of their citizens on purpose to steal the fruit of their labor. 3. Invasion into the personal lives of citizens by an ever expanding federal government. NSA, Department of Homeland Security.

16. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

The life of the mother.

17. Based on the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution, please arrange the following entities, starting with the highest source of authority, and continue the list in descending order of authority, skipping any that do not apply: Academia, Congress, Constitution, God, Industry, Media, Professional Sports, Supreme Court, Voters.

God,(Voters we the people), Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court.

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God the creator of the universe, his son Jesus who died for the sins of mankind and the Holy Spirit to guide us today. I believe that he left us here as stewards of the earth and to spread the good news leading others toward the saving grace of God.
