Agree

11. More restrictive gun control laws are needed now to protect public safety.

Strongly Disagree

12. 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.

Agree

13. People should be able to vote without photo identification.

Strongly Disagree

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

We need separation of power to prevent dictatorial rule. Power leads to corruption eventually that's why checks and balances are vital to a Democracy.

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

Affordable Care Act- it affects our economy and my generation especially because it is dependent on healthy young Americans to over pay on their premiums. This law needs to be revised. Economy & Jobs- tax reform is vitally needed in order to stimulate our economy. Right now Americans are over taxed. College Tuition and Student Loan Reform- I am a student and veteran. This path of inflated tuition and student loan debt will lead to another economic crash if we do not confront it immediately.

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

I am a social libertarian and believe the government has no right to tell a women or any American citizen how to control their body.

17. 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.

Constitution, Congress, Supreme Court

18. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

Roman Catholic
