    What will be America's most pressiing problem facing the new president who takes office in 2017?

    Except for new problems as yet unforseen, which current problem facing the new president in 2017 do you consider the "most pressing problem"?

    Employment/Economy.  Especially the underemployed. Many are workers between the ages of 35 and 55.  That's a tough time to make major changes in your life.  It will require more tax $$.  The structure of the economy is in the middle of a fundamental change that will take another 25 years to finalize.

    I answered this question yesterday (American Job Creation) , what you didn't believe me ? If American jobs can solve problems in the third world why should  Americans want to have third world problems caused by lack of employment. Jobs will solve over 50% of our problems.  Job Creation and there's plenty work to do.

      The truth is not conservative or liberal. i am a proud conservative but my statement stands. You can argue otherwise, but you will have to back it up with facts.

      That's not your statement you are parroting what you heard on fox news. You don't know "Jack" about  American Politics and I tried to dialog with you a few weeks ago and you ran back to where you live on hubpages. You refused debate then I will now

      I have never refused a debate on issues. I don't understand your comment. What does "ran back to hubpages..." mean? I do watch Fox News and many other news and talk radio because I found Main Stream media to be biased and dishonest.

    If the next president is a Democrat, the greatest problem she will face is gridlock of anything she wants to accomplish. If the new president is Trump, probably the same problem. If the Repubs get around Trump and a president more to their liking is elected, jobs and the economy will be the greatest challenge.
    Our government has just gotten too big to take care of our ever-growing population. I don't believe that any president can create jobs despite campaign promises.
    Maybe we should split the country in half at the Continental Divide and have all the states on one side turn red and those on the other side blue. Or we could put all the Christians on one side and the non-Christians on the other. Then we could have another Civil War over trumped up charges just like we had in 1861. War is always good for the economy, you know. Oops, that was back when the USA had home-owned industry and technology.
    Sorry, I just can't take American politics seriously anymore. I'm very pessimistic about the future of this country. If the Repubs take away our social security like they keep wanting to, I will have to emigrate to Mexico to make my retirement savings stretch.

      You are so misguided. The problem is not with the Republicans or the Democrats but the elites and power brokers behind the scene. No matter which party is elected, they don't get to rule. The big money donors do. They are against the people...
