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

I believe in God as the Omniscient, Omnipotent, Omnipresent Creator of all. I believe in Jesus Christ as His only Son who willingly sacrificed His life as payment for the sin of mankind.
