12. Free market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

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

Madison described in The Federalist No. 51 how human nature could be marshaled to protect liberty, saying "[T]he great security against a gradual concentration of the several powers in the same department, consists in giving to those who administer each department, the necessary constitutional means, and personal motives to resist encroachments of the others."

19. 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 Constitution Congress Voters

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

Although there are many ways to fertilize an egg, not all are ethically or morally acceptable -- and some, like rape or incest, are truly reprehensible and indeed, physically sickening to think about. Some methods we can completely control, such as SCNT for cloning. Unfortunately, we can't stop every man from sexually violating every woman. Nevertheless, we need always to remember that abortion is killing a human fetus, and such killing is illegal.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in the Apostle's Creed and the EFCA Statement of Faith, which can be found here: http://stpaulsefree.org/about/beliefs
