About Me:I like to learn, read, research, and expand my knowledge of the world around me. Especially in the political/legal field.
Beliefs:I'm Catholic, but not somebody who mixes church and state together. Economically, I am liberal. I support a mixed economy, with basic services either run by or funded by the community. Socially, I am a moderate. I believe people should live by their own code of ethics. However, I am opposed to abortion in most cases. Religion should play no role in Government (there are secular reasons to disallow abortion), and people should be treating each other with kindness/tolerance. While I am conservative in my way of living (religion, chastity, etc.), I can be quite liberal in political context. I believe in a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Usually, when I advocate for strong social programs (welfare, quality public education, public health insurance, etc.), I advocate for them to be run at each of the State levels. The Federal Government should release its grip on these programs. I am a strict non-interventionist. No military intervention unless in self-defense.
