    Most Important Issue For 2016 Election?

    The confederate flag? Obama's (now democrats) success with gay marriage? George Bush's legacy as a problem president? It won't be whatever the nation is actually facing. That is for sure.

    Depends...will they insist on trying to overturn it? Will they go on and on about how morally "wrong" that was and try to use it as a weapon against the opposition?

    Has anyone who is Pro-Life stopped the "war" against Roe V Wade?

    Will the conservatives stop trying to be the morality police for everybody? I doubt it, but we'll see.

    I was directly replying to a post about conservatives.

    Go back to my first post and see what I posted.

    BOTH parties are dry-humping us into oblivion. Not one. Both.

    The key issue of the next several decades will be one of employment. Specifically we have to find an answer to the question as to what we do with tens of millions of people who simply are no longer necessary for the nation and its economy to function. In a representative democracy such as ours, a high percentage of people who have no constructive role or place in the society is a recipe for serious potential disaster.

    Almost every other issue boils down to economics. Abortion does. Racism does. Education and immigration issues do. Even this country's gun problems would be alleviated through more egalitarian economics.

    I agree completely, besides guns and abortion are pretty much left and right and everyone knows who stands where. Those two were wasted options.
