About Me:I graduated from Rutgers University in May with a solid 3.5 as a History major and Philosophy minor. I am currently working as a bank teller and freelance painter to save money for law school, which I will be applying to as soon as possible. I consider myself a fiscal conservative because I don't believe in government hand-outs but rather hard work and discipline like my parents have instilled in me. I don't believe that this country was founded on liberals but rather men who believed in liberty, and a big governmment minimizes our liberty and freedom.

Beliefs:I was raised Catholic and believe in the Church and its message, however, I think people should be free to practice any religion they choose.

The 'big issues' portion on this site should be revamped. I contend this for a few reasons. 1. Take this for example: It asks you, "in favor or against abortion".

One Personal Finance Credit Should Be Required In High School

There are many problems in modern America, but I feel a substantial one is the lack of personal fiscal responsibility. To put it simply, many people leave high school and enter the "real world" with no idea how to manage, save, and spend money. To support this claim, I point to the recent downturn in the American economy. A substantial portion of the problem has been attributed to home foreclosures. And why are homes being foreclosed upon? For one of four reasons. 1) The bank loaned money to a p...

Baseball is a better sport than basketball.

Although both baseball and basketball are both popular team sports, there are many advantages that baseball has over basketball making it the better of the two games. For instance, while both sports promote teamwork and a collective effort by all athletes on their respective teams, baseball allows for a greater aspect of personal responsibility.
