7. Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Agree

9. The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) should be repealed by Congress.

Strongly Agree

10. There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

Strongly Agree

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

America's Founders were aware of the tendency of leaders to want more and more power. Thus the separation of powers is necessary to keep the branches of government in check.

17. The founders established pure democracy in the Constitution because they believed that it is the best form of government to ensure the safety and equitable treatment of all citizens.

Agree

18. 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 of course is above all. The Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution do not address several of these items, thus - based upon those two items - I cannot rank this list.

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God and practice in the Catholic tradition.
