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

The answer lies on the very first lines of the constitution; We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Their pursue for Life, Liberty and happiness.

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

Economy - Our nations debt is out of control and what’s worse it that there are no signs in Washington of an attempt to control and repay. We are gambling our nations future today. This must end now. To do so we must have a fiscal conservative government with a responsible view for the future. Education - Common Core is a threat to the most fundamental rights, the undeniable families rights to choose the best education for their children. This comes with a serious opposition to the individual freedom of religion. Healthcare - The ACA has been proven as a failure. Nevertheless some aspects are to be rescued; prior conditions can't ever be used as an argument to deny coverage to an individual, and in addition every family should have the ability to cover their children attending college.

Yes. When the mothers life is at risk.
