History

Read the following quote from John Adams:

"We have no government armed in power capable of contending with human passions unbridled [uncontrolled] by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other."

Which of the following National-Republican ideas does this statement best support?

A powerful central government poses a threat to individual liberties.
The government should be responsible for making all national improvements.
The Constitution is a flexible document that should change as the country changes. ***
The framers of the Constitution did not mean for the government to protect the rights of individuals.

I think it is C because the National Republicans aligned with a loose interpretation of the Constitution.
