    As we approach the Presidential race, what issue do you think both parties need to come together on?

    Surely the greatest issue is the world economy and how this planet is going to continue to provide for over 7 billion people. As America is one of the greatest powers on the planet I believe that all the political parties should unite and try to find some kind of sensible, usable solution to a very worrying and urgent problem

    Our deficit spending.   I shudder to think about how much the debt grows every minute.

    Eliminating government regulations is the most important effective way to generate jobs, because it unleashes small business which is responsible for generating 70 percent of ALL new jobs. Though spending is an extremely urgent issue, without reigning in government regulations in order to create jobs and grow businesses there will not be an America left -- because there will not be anyone left to tax.

    It is oddly curious though that during a period of economic turmoil the US Congress decides to eliminate laws and regulations regarding certain industries or business sectors, predicated on the contention that regulations impede business growth. It begs the question: "if eliminating regulations during down economic times is an effective strategy to create jobs, why would Congress pass the laws that constrain business growth to begin with?"

    Jobs, by rewarding manufacturing businesses that come back with a zero tax and tax the heck out of the ones that continue to outsource with high import taxes for their products. And people supporting those returning businesses by purchasing their products and not the imports.

    They need to both agree on the U.S. Constitution being adhered to today. It is not just an outdated document to be circumvented when it suits.

    The two-party system is all political kabuki working in tandem NOT to deal with issues that would hurt the pocketbooks of the 1 percenters. We are already are ruled by a corpocracy government.

    If a corporation is legally considered a 'person' and money is considered free speech then will the election in 2016 be between McDonald's and Walmart?
