1. Free enterprise and the right to private property turn mankind's natural self interest into the fairest and most productive economic system there is, and are the key to national prosperity.

Strongly Agree

Strongly Agree

10. 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.

Strongly Agree

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

The Founders recognized the sin nature of mankind and knew that unchecked power would be abused. They set human nature against human nature by creating three branches of government with separate, competing powers, intending for each branch to seek to restrain the others to protect its own interests.

17. 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.

Strongly Disagree

18. 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. Our country is not a pure democracy, but is a republic whose highest source of authority is the Bible. Voters are under the Declar of Independence and Constitution, which embody Biblical principles.

19. Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I am a Christian. I believe in the sovereignty of God and that the Bible is the divinely inspired written Word of God. I believe that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and that our government needs to return to its foundational principles.
