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

The framers had a strong commitment to liberty, justice, and concern for the public good that is derived from their firm belief in natural rights given to us from God. They saw first-hand the downfalls of monarchial Great Britain, where power was too heavily concentrated in the hands of the few. This was detrimental to its citzens.

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,Voters,Constitution,Supreme Court

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that the Bible is the inspired, error-free, and revealed word of God. I believe that God’s Ten Commandments provide a moral compass — an ethical standard to live by. I believe in the existence of the Holy Trinity — one God in three persons. Catholics embrace the belief that God, the one Supreme Being, is made up of three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I have lived my life believing that one person can and does make a difference and have reflected that belief through decades of volunteerism in my community. I believe that you are not Pro-Life if you support the death penalty. I believe that makes you Pro-Birth. All human life has value. Too many candidates say they are "Pro-Life" to garner support. They don't really care what happens to that child after it is born.
