What should the United States do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism?

The best thing the United States can do to help eradicate the threat of radical Islamic terrorism is to stop helping countries like Saudi Arabia & Turkey who are direct sponsors of these wahabi terrorist groups that are spreading these radical ideologies and should instead work alongside countries like Russia, Syria & Iran in their efforts to combat terrorism throughout the Middle East.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I'm Catholic and as a faith based person, my religious beliefs are strongly rooted in values. God is a God of Love not hate. There's a great need in our country for tolerance and we must respect all races, religious beliefs and sexual preference. God hates the sin not the sinner. I'm ProLife and will defend my stance, but because this country was founded on the freedom of choice & God gave us free will it is our duty as Christians not to hate or criticize but rather to educate people to the point were they can make a conscientious decision.

When you consider your views on a wide range of issues from economic and social matters to foreign policy and immigration, which of the following best describes you overall?

Is there anything else you would like voters to know about you?

I'm not a career politician, I'm one of you! I'm a constituent who is fed up with politicians who make empty promises just to get elected & then instead they work on behalf of the corporations and special interests that helped get them elected rather then focusing on the needs people. That is why my campaign is a campaign by the people for the people because in the end it's about the people! It's time we put "Principals Above Politics"
