People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

Religious liberty is at risk in the United States.

Agree

Human life begins at conception and deserves legal protection at every stage until natural death.

Strongly Agree

Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self-interest into the most productive economic system there is.

Strongly Agree

There should be a strict constitutional spending limit for state and local governments that would tie the rate of spending to the rate of population growth plus the rate of inflation.

No Answer

Marijuana should be legalized and regulated like tobacco and alcohol.

Disagree

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality which permitted our system of limited government.

Agree

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.

No Answer

Free-market competition for education dollars, rather than a government monopoly, would create a better education for all students.

No Answer

Where minor children are involved, divorce laws should be reformed to include mutual consent of both parents and an increased waiting period, unless there is fault or abuse.

Agree

The Ten Commandments should not be displayed in public school buildings.

Disagree

Business owners should be required by law to bake cakes, provide flower arrangements, etc., for same-sex weddings, even when these activities would infringe on their sincerely-held religious beliefs.

Disagree

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Strongly Disagree

Physician-assisted suicide should be legal.

Strongly Disagree

The more people live by Judeo-Christian values, the less government is needed.

Neutral

Islamic law (Sharia) does not pose a threat to the United States and its Constitution.

Disagree

Governments should define marriage as between one man and one woman; no other definition of marriage should be legalized or supported with public funds.

Agree

It is the government’s responsibility to be sure everyone has health care and a livable income.

Disagree

Planned Parenthood should not receive funds from federal, state, or local governments.

Strongly Agree

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

The Founders established checks and balances in the Constitution because man is naturally flawed. If one person is given 'absolute' power, the government will be corrupt and serve the best interest of one person. Separation of Powers in the Constitution does not allow the government to be used in an abusive manner to the benefit of one person, but rather, to promote the general welfare.

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, Constitution, Voters, Congress, Supreme Court
