What single issue above all others is most important to you in Election 2012?
There are so many important issues in this year's presidential and congressinal elections. Please specify (without looking at the answers from other Hubbers before you answer) as to what you choose as the single most important issue which must be considered in Election 2012. Let's get a "mini-pulse of the nation."
Without a doubt, the issue of poverty and people slipping down into homelessness and hunger. Although, the issue of the on-going wars and occupations, and the new ones springing up, run neck and neck with the poverty issue. Censorship and government control and surveillance and illegal searches and repression of the people very close, neck and neck possibly too.
So many are suffering who "Want" to work, In my area there are just NO JOBS. So, The economy and the unemployment rate is my main concern.
I think the economy in general will be the concern of most. More specifically, I'd like to see who has a better plan for eliminating the deficit, or at least approaching a balanced budget. I'm still undecided, but it seems to me that Romney will be better about balancing funds than Obama will be, although Romney wasn't my favorite of the Republican nominees.
Healthcare is also huge in this election. I'm not sure how legitimate the chances of a repeal are, but if Obama is not reelected this year, those chances rise considerably.
Change of leadership in the WH and Congress, with a majority of non-crony supporters of the free market. This is to change the trend seen in this graph.

Why is voter I.D. such an issue?I have been an American citizen my whole life (58 yrs.) and cannot get a job in the U.S. without a current picture I.D. and an actual social security card. So, why would I feel that I should be able to vote for the leader of my country without one? As long as this...
