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

I feel greed and the concentration of power through history was the lesson that our founders had concern for and why they defined, separated and limit the powers of each branch of our Republic. To this end they have helped keep us from becoming dictated by one man or one party of political influence.

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.

Disagree

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, Congress, Supreme Court, Academia, Industry, Media, Professional Sports

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to save fallen man from an eternity separated from God.
