Fool! Nobody can list one issue. I give you my top three.

1. Illegal immigration
2. Trade reform
3. Tax reform

hmm, I was a little bummed yesterday when I heard McCain is wanting free trade with S. America.

Building products are going to take a HUGE hit if they do that, and people will not save $$.

Seriously? None of these would be in your top three?
Health Care? Job Loss/Economy? Gas Prices?

Sounds like you've got a pretty good life.

I think if we work on the trade aspect it will also help in the Job loss/ economy as well.

If we can get the economy to turn around it should help to lower or stabilize oil prices.

There are good and decent health care options out there.

Just my .02

I have a decent job and live within my means.

I don't believe the government can provide equal health care to what I receive today- and compared to most my employer's health care plan is crappy. So, that is a low priority issue for me.

You're daft if you don't see the connection to my top three and job loss/economy.

As far as gas prices- I don't get caught up when politicians promise to temporarily suspend local/federal taxes which save me ~$2/wk. I'd rather hear the candidates state their plan for #1. strengthening the dollar #2. buildign more refineries. #3. local exploration.
