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

They understood that Mankind's nature is to be good & to be tempted by evil to sin. In the "Declaration of Independence," they attributed to "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" America's entitlement to a separate and equal station with England. Dr. H. Lawrence Zillmer, in his 2012 book "Living with Agenda 21: Surrendering Our Freedoms," explains that "The Ten Commandments are but a simplified and abbreviated version of Natural Law" and that "we must live in harmony with Natural Law or die."

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

1. Education--the federal government's interference is "dumbing" it down 2. Healthcare--the federal government's interference is ruining it 3. Economy--the federal government's interference is gutting it

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

I believe that birth control stops with conception, and I believe that induced abortion mills such as those in Planned Parenthood facilities should be outlawed. But as a registered nurse in the emergency room of a major medical center in Mobile, Alabama, I frequently cared for women undergoing an abortion. I always assumed it to be spontaneous and that only God knew the reason why. Does the "right to life movement" want these women in distress to be subjected to lie detector tests with questions like "Did you fall down the stairs to lose your child?" I believe that the unborn are in God's jurisdiction and that it is atheistic to believe that the unborn can be protected by man alone from conception to birth.

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, Congress, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian who was raised as a Southern Baptist. While I love to visit other places of worship, my spiritual beliefs and values are most at home in the Baptist church.
