    Which issue is the most important to you?

    Just as the title says. Which issue is the most important for you? Abortion and homosexual rights apply to people of either side (pro-life, pro-choice, pro homosexual marriage, against homosexual marriage). The same goes for the war (for or against).

    Re: Which issue is the most important to you?

    The economy/jobs will recover as part of a natural cycle. The war on terror is going fairly well. Abortion is where I want it to be and homosexual marriage will happen.

    The BIG one is the debt and deficit. We are adding trillions a year to the debt. We are spending way too much and a lot of that comes in entitlements. We have to do something about it and it will not be easy. Healthcare just adds to the problem.

    Abortion

    That one is a done deal. The state doesn't have the right to choose, the woman does. End of story, no changes needed there. The Supreme Court has spoken.


    Homosexual rights

    While this one doesn't really affect me one way or the other, it would be fair for the gays to have the same rights the rest of us enjoy. It wouldn't threaten my heterosexual marriage one bit to have a gay couple tie the knot. Compared to the real issues, however, this one is definitely a back burner item.

    The War on Terror (all fronts)


    This one is perhaps #3. The truth is, terrorism is not the huge threat that it is being made out to be. Further, we can't wage a war on a tactic of warfare, that is just nonsense. We do need to keep tabs on the crazies in the Mid East, however, and we should go and get Bin laden and his cockroaches. They should have been apprehended years ago, but, then, we did have an incompetent at the helm of the nation.


    Economy/Jobs


    By orders of magnitude, the most important issue is getting the economy back on track, no question.

    The National Debt

    is the number two issue, and is closely related to the economy.

    Other (please state)

    Secure the border, cut back the size and power of the federal government, repeal the Patriot Act and asset forfeiture, end the war on drugs. All of those issues are more important than abortion and gay rights that occupy so much of our time.

    Education by far. Kids are the future and I want them to be as smart as they possibly can be so they don't have to go through a recession when they are older like the current generation is now. Hopefully they will be smart enough to fix many problems and even prevent some too.

    Education should absolutely be the number one priority at the state level. At the natinonal level, not so much.

    Re: Which issue is the most important to you?

    I went with economy/jobs, thought it is hard to say really which is how important. They are all important, and not necessarily mutually exclusive. We can work on the economy at the same time as working on abortion rights, at the very same time as working on gay rights, at the very same time working to reduce the deficit and debt, and so on. Some even are complimentary. Improve the economy, and removing the deficit is easier.

    edit: by the way, good poll, no slanting or loaded questions, very even handed. Nicely done.

    I suppose it isn't. I interpreted it that way, and so left off education.

    If we're talking about local issues, then police and fire protection should be right up there. In fact, the state and local should fund schools, fire, and police first, then, if there is money left, go for the other stuff.

    The economy because you cant work on the others if you have no money.
