    Leaving politics out of the discussion, no finger pointing, no blaming, no talking points. Going into this election, what is the most important issue to you?

        What a freekin' sham!

        Two of your last posts are Obama-bashing cartoons with no substance, and then you want to pretend you are moderating an issue-oriented, non-political discussion.

        We have seen this carp from LaLo and Oilypooch. I want to bring up credibility issues and false claims, but any regular on the forum knows.

        I will reserve serious comments for honest hubbers. For now I side with Ron.... women and beer in that order.

      I want to have all water fountains replaced with Mountain Dew fountains.  I want bigger televisions with even higher definition, bigger suburbans with bigger fuel tanks, more reality television, oh yeah and bring the troops home and feed all the hungry, not necessarily in that order.   

      Sadly, I don't think it really matters what "real" people want, that pipe dream ended a long time ago.

    To me, it's jobs. I think getting people back to work will cure a lot of the countries ills.

      Government can't create jobs.

      To see a detailed discussion of "the seen vs. the unseen", I recommend "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt.

        Evan,

        I said no politics. I never said the government created jobs

          How can "Government can't create jobs" be considered politics?

          you're talking about an election, and you said that the most important issue to you is jobs. Then i said "government can't create jobs"...

          ... I must insist that I did nothing wrong

            Evan,

            no one is saying you did anything wrong. You need to not be so defensive. This is not an attack hub. All I am said was Jobs are my most important issue. I said nothing about government creating or not creating. That's a different issue You said getting liberty back. Did I say anything about the government not being able to create liberty, it's the people who do that? No I said no politics. Saying what the government can or cannot do is injecting politics.

              I agree that jobs are the most important issue. Ending the Afghanistan war is #2.

    Getting my liberty back.

    This goes hand in hand with a sound money, and many other issues.

    To make be sure that none of the current Republican candidates get elected. None of them have anything close to a  thoughtout plan to change anything - so it'll be the same ole crap like the Bush years. Romney is clueless, Bachmann is a psychopath, and the rest are not worth the time.

      I want to thank you for not making it political. So since you did not state what was improtant to you, I guess you have nothing to vote for

        How can "every Republican sucks" not be a political message?

        1. Doug Hughes profile image61
          Doug Hughesposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Phrase it nicely.

          "Every republican sucks, but I mean it in a nice way."

          See how non-political that sounds?

      Evan G Rogersposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      The strongest third party candidate you'll get is Ron Paul.

      I'm aware he's a Republican, but he's definitely libertarian.

    I would like to see Obama re-elected along with a Dem majority in the Senate and the House.

        Well who wins the election will affect a lot of important issues--health care reform, Medicare, Social Security, tax reform, and possible Supreme Court and other judicial appointments which have been on hold thanks to the GOP. Of course, unemployment is the most important issue at the present time.

          Ralph,

          No question about who ever is the Next President has many issues to address. But it has always been that way throughout history. There are always important issues to tackle. Strangely, for the 50 + years, it always seems to be the same issues.

    Yeah!  There's nothing political about elections...roll

      American Viewposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Your missing the point Ron. Put politics aside. Everyone needs to. Get to the root of what it is that is important to you going into this election. Is it to raise taxes, or not. Is it to cut the budget, or keep spending. Bring the troops home, lower gas prices,  jobs, tougher child protection laws, immigration reform, do something about the borders,etc. What is it that's important to you?

        Sex and beer.  Who do I vote for?

          Who you vote for is your choice. This is not to tell anyone who to vote for. It was just to see what everyone is thinking.

      Evan G Rogersposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah, I'm confused as well. A lot of people on here are saying "Republicans suck", or "Democrats rock"... and, apparently AREN'T political...

      but when I say "government can't create jobs", it, apparently, IS political.

        Sex and beer are apparently the only topics that truly transcend politics.

        Evan,

        What is your problem? Are you not reading this hub? Do you not know sarcasim when you see it? Ralph got it. Or are you that defensive? Man take a chill pill before you have a heart attack.
