Default What is important to you?

Letís not talk about what party you belong to or bash the other opponent, but letís talk about what YOUR most important issue is this election. No mud slinging, just what are you the most adamant about? What stand do you take and why?

Many things come into play for me: Integrity is #1, and that is based on track record.

I also consider it incredibly important that my candidate is principled without losing sight of reality, someone who believes positive change can be attained, but only through hard work and setting realistic and achievable goals. It's also of the utmost importance to me that this country not slip too far right or left. I don't want a Theocracy any more than I want Socialism, but I see "lines drawn in the sand" that lead me to believe that there are currently too many destructive influences from the fringes on the far edges of the parties who are closing in on achieving those "goals".

Neither help "We, the people", but both advance narrow ideologies embraced by a few who have managed to concentrate power in a government that was, ironically, built on the idea that these very things could NEVER occur.

Sorry to be the skeptic, but good luck with that. To answer the question though, the most important issue to me would be getting the economy back on track ASAP, but there's only so much the president can do in that regard.

I know - it is hard not to do the mud slinging here, but I am trying!!!! The economy getting back on track is certainly very important, no matter what party you vote for in the election.

I agree that the economy should be at the top. My issue however is a little more....sentimental? Honorable? And not necessarily everyone's top priority:

I want our troops to finish the mission and come home triumphant. I want us to finish what we started. What I don't want is for them to be pulled out early and have all the lives lost be in vain (sp?). Our politicians have done that in the past and it is wrong in so many ways. I could go on, but that's the skinny on where I stand.

That's what I started to tell her when she asked about starting this thread.....but I stopped because I didn't want to sound too skeptical.
