Limit people driven by thirst for power, pride, and envy

Q: 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?

Bishop: Strongly Agree

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

Bishop: The nature of mankind drove America's Founders to carefully define, separate and limit powers within the Constitution. Man can be driven to accomplish great things when motives are pure and outcome is driven by humility and Godly intent. However, man is inherently flawed and, there are people whom are driven by a thirst for power, pride, and envy. By limiting powers and creating checks and balances, our Founders ensured an environment where no one man or woman could force change alone.

Q: People should be able to vote without photo identification?

Bishop: Strongly Disagree
