    Re: Which issue is the most important to you?

    Electoral reform is my most important issue. I want Instant Run-off Voting to be used so more third-party candidates have a better chance of getting elected into office. Until we get more voices in Congress having more of a say on how our laws are written, no other issue, I believe, will be adequately resolved.

    Wouldn't it be more effective for third parties to actually attract voters?

    Both our long term and short term is directly related upon our budget and our national debt.
    You can't effectively improve anything long term without addressing those 2 things first.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Fiscally true, but things like abortion and gay rights are for the most part revenue neutral.

    I hate to say it but if the U.S. defaulted on it's debts, those things would fall even further on the list of important things to deal with.

    We are already on the edge of losing our AAA credit rating right now.

    I understand what you are saying, and I did go woth the economy as my choice, but congress and the pres are not going to work 100 % of the time on the economy and debt. There is time to work on things that don't cost anything.

    I would agree with that as long as it doesn't cost anything.

    I'm really worried about the debt though, it's getting to much.
    If we slip on our AAA, interest rates will change which will increase what we owe.
    We're also facing a pension fund bailout which should add another 500 billion to 1 trillion.

    People find it hard to believe, but I am a real balanced budget fanatic. I think you can have deficits, but only short term. If we had been running a balanced budget when this meltdown occurred, the spending now would be a non issue.

    I agree, no matter who is in control I want it balanced and everything paid for.

    I can accept a smaller short term debt but not the insanity of the last 20 years.
    They keep pushing it off to the next Congress/President.
