The reason that our American Founders set careful limits of power and define separations within our Constitution was because of their solid beliefs in God, His Holy Word and freedom from unrelenting government control from England. They wanted to convey through the Constitution that no single group could control, change or shape the government to satisfy the needs of a select few.

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.

Strongly 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, Constitution, Voters, (Congress, Supreme Court), Academia

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

God and His Holy Word shape my daily habits and thoughts. A long lasting marriage between me and my wife was sealed with God's word and it has proven to be our rock through out our many years. Trust in Him, he will not abandon you.
