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

Despotism. "An elective despotism was not the government we fought for; but one which should not only be founded on free principles, but in which the powers of government should be so divided and balanced among several bodies of magistracy, as that no one could transcend their legal limits, without being effectually checked and restrained by the others." Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia,1784

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 Disagree

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a born again Christian (since 1989). I hold a Judeo-Christian worldview. I am a social and fiscal conservative. My priorities are serving God, my family, my church, and in doing my civic duty. Some of what I have addressed locally: Regionalism, educating the public how their property rights are in danger by regional planners funded by HUD; Common Core, how it is Outcome Based Education repackaged and on steroids; the need for American Laws for American Courts, Sharia law precendents tied with interfaith outreach by imams subverts our courts and our freedoms; Marriage Rally on the Square uniting the pro-life and true marriage message. I have gone to Columbus for hearings on Common core, eliminating Golden Week,a Common Sense Initiative hearing on abuses of our regional sewer district and have been cited as a researcher in testimony supporting development of Thorium reactors in Ohio. My faith is alive and well for the many works that I have outside of the salt shaker.
