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

The founders knew that the natural state of government officials would be to desire greater and more sweeping powers and higher taxes. By creating checks and balances and discouraging "career politics" they were able to create a system of government that has given us the greatest personal liberty and prosperity in history. The root of every major crisis we face today can be traced to our departure from the wisdom of the Constitution and the bill of rights.

16. Briefly list three (3) political or legislative issues of most concern to you, and explain why each is important to you.

1. The border crisis: Immigration must be fixed, and the border completely controlled now. 2. Out of control spending. With competent leadership and quality management our government could be a fraction of it's current size and deliver better service. The current state of government incompetence and gross mismanagement is unsustainable. 3. The economy.Small business is the engine of the American economy. With a proper balance between needful regulation and freedom for creative growth, the American small business pool will once again revolutionize the world economy. With a proper balance restored small businesses will once again offer explosive employment growth, revenue production and a vehicle for accelerating movement for millions of American families into financial security, prosperity and upward mobility.

17. Should abortion be allowed under extenuating circumstances? If so, what circumstances?

Life of the mother, rape and incest.
