  • I would have to say my top issues with politics is

    1. Healthcare, I do not belief in Universal Healthcare whatsoever but I do believe we need to come up with a system that is more competitive and lowering the prices of insurance premiums. I do not want government run healthcare and making decisions for me and my children based on what the government feels I need.

    2. Education, I belief take politics out of education and it will improve drastically. I also believe in homeschooling if your able to do so.

    3. Illegal Immigration, I do not agree with people living over here under any means if they are not legal to do so. No matter the steps it takes to become a citizen here in America it should be followed because it is the law. I feel that illegal immigration is one of our biggest issues when it comes to the finances in this country.

    Im about to run out of characters lol, so will continue.

  • Continue.

    4. Government needs to be put back in there place where they belong, this is probally my biggest issue right now, Government is becoming too big, as a Mother this bothers me more so for my children because I can only imagine what they will deal with when they are older, its growing now at a fast pace by the time they are grown if things don't change this country will not look like the America that was founded by our forefathers.

    5. Terrorism is another thing I worry about. I feel we have let our guard down here in America and it can come back and bite us in the butt so to speak. Also feel that we need to realize that we can not govern the world we need to start at home, we have eneough mess here in America that we need to take care of home first.

    Answer by LadyIsobel at 4:31 AM on Mar. 23, 2009

  • A Fiscally Responsible Government that doesn't mortgage my children's future to implement a partisan agenda, Stimulus and Bills that are rushed through in a PANIC and voted on before even read.

    A Government that keeps its decision making bureaucratically filled policies out of Education.

    Affordable Healthcare OPTIONS without bureaucratically infused decisions that are made to sway votes inlo of helping people.

    A Future that enstills LIfe, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness WITHOUT Big Government being the determining factor on who is  worthy of any and all of those three.

    An opportunity to live the American Dream, work hard, preavail and build a Future based on Freedoms and NOT policies.
