    Which Issue Matters Most To You?

    Which of these issues matter most to you?

    My answer is Foreign Policy. Our foreign policy is behind alot of the problems we have today. Unsustainable spending due to our bloated defense budget, increases in taxes needed to somewhat balance out the unsustainable spending, a decrease in civil liberties largely justified by the scary sand people who might attack us if we don't touch people's junk, an increase in federal powers overall granted by wartime powers, and of course the cronyism that emerges between government and corporation when the government buys trillions of dollars in defense equipment.

    Foreign policy is not nearly as worrisome, at the moment, as the increasing gap between rich and poor. The gap between upper middle class and lower middle class is widening, and ultimately taking a path that will keep this trend going. If this doesn't change, political power will be completely determined by the rich and which candidate is favored by the richest people, instead of in the hands of the majority of Americans.

    Campaign finance.

    You fix that, so that corporations and wealthy individuals can no longer buy the favor of the US government and a lot of the other issues with solve themselves.

    that's a silly worry given that at least half the rich in this country want more and more government, and the rest of us want to limit the government to the boundaries the founders placed on it

    This.

    Although more education than anything.

    This is based on my belief/opinion that with better education, the rest will follow.


    Edit: I actually have no idea how to define "better education", though.

    Education.

    BS. The wealthy have always made the rules and they always will.
