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

We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion.

19. 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

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

Yes. To preserve the life of the mother.

21. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe in God the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. I believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, that faith without works is dead, and that we are saved by Grace after all that we can do. The purpose of the earth is to provide a place for God's children to grow, be tested, and become more like Him. We are given, from God, certain inalienable rights and among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Life is sacred, liberty allows us to worship Him, and happiness is the object of our existence. Family, (Father, Mother, and Children), is the fundamental building block of any good society. The most important work that we accomplish will be within the walls of our own home. We must protect our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.
