iReport Debate: Vote on the issues

 

We asked what issues matter to you this election.

 

More than 400 people participated. Between the personal stories and the breadth of topics, we were overwhelmed with the response to part one of the iReport Debate.

 

From your iReports, CNN identified the top 20 themes. Now we’re asking you to help us narrow down the field.

 

Drag and drop the issues here to rank them by importance to you. Submit your vote for the top 10, and your votes will determine what issues make it to the next round of the iReport Debate. Your votes will shape the questions that we’ll ultimately take to Obama and Romney.

 

Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on May 23. The top four to six issues will make it to the next round of the iReport Debate – and that's when the real debating begins! We'll invite you to share your views on those topics and go head-to-head with other iReporters around the country.

 

If you feel your top issue is not represented in the list, we encourage you to let us know. Feel free to sound off with your top pick.

 

Thanks for your participation so far. We’re excited to move into the next part of the debate, so don’t forget to vote! If you’ve got any questions, feel free to leave a comment below.

I wanted to say “the most important thing in this election’ was to get the Muslim out of the white house and declare this a Christian Nation again. We were founded on the Christian religion and the 10 Commandments! If he is elected again, we will be known as ‘the Obama nation of America’ or pronounced ‘ ‘the abomination of America.

Love your neighbor as yourself, if you are Truly Christian then why are do you show so much hate towards our leader? Your supposed to be praying and supporting the government, not building up lies on it.

What planet are you on? This isnt a Chrisitan nation and never was, it's a nation that guarantees religious freedom to all.

If anyone wonders why Congress can't get anything done just read this Blog. America and Americans be damned is the theme I want to have have only one voice, my own.

"Can't we just get Along," or lets just start another civil war and be done with it!" We need another frontier maybe Mars so half of us can just leave this cat fight behind.

christian69,

The government has no right to 'make this a christian nation again'. It is written in the lines of the constitution itself. This nation was founded by great men, with the dream of building a nation where everyone is accepted. A nation where the government could not interfere with freedom, and personal liberties.Not a nation where God, or the 10 commandments, or Christianity came first.

All any organized religion does is start wars and collect money. I'm not talking about now.  I'm talkning from the first cavemen who probably worshipped the sun who probably killed others who worshipped the moon.

I cant beleive all is so focused on something that is a personal decision that won't have anything to do with your everyday life. People lets have focus on our food and govrrnment involvement in big corperations. How can we let our goverment allow big corperations patent seeds and not allow a farmer to save his own seeds. We all will starve, not because of the ecomony but because what is happening to our farmers and agriculture behind closed doors.

It is my understanding that the Mormon faith believes that the skin color of the Native American is due to a curse from God.  If this is true, I wonder what Romney's position is on this.

Ballots need to include a NO box next to each candidate so if negative campaigning by A convinces the voter B is unworthy they can vote against B without having to vote for A, who may be only a lesser of evils for the voter.  The highest net yes wins.  A simple addition...a tsunami of impact on campaigning, results and reflection of voter sentiment as well as being less pinnable.  Being able to vote no when you mean NO...how refreshing
