iReport Debate: What’s your top issue?
A bigger or smaller government?
Now that it is all but settled that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee facing off against President Barack Obama during the fall general election, American voters must now make a decision about which road they want the nation to travel for the next four years.
The choice of roads is:
1. Do American voters want to continue the current road with increasing involvement of the federal government in the lives of the American people?
2. Do American voters want less federal government involvement with more of the decisions being left to the individuals and local/state governments?
The answer to these two questions is predicated on 4 primary issues as we approach the November vote:
1. The Economy - including the unsustainable national debt, an atmosphere more conducive to expansion of business and job creation.
2. Healthcare - fixing what is wrong and keeping what is right.
3. Energy Policy - becoming less dependent on outside forces and more reliant upon ourselves to meet and provide our energy needs.
4. Tax Reform - a complete overhaul of the system, throwing out deductions that are not beneficial and keeping only those which provide for the greater good.
All four of these issues are inter-related and must be tackled with common sense, logic and realism. I plan to delve into each issue separately with my thoughs and opinions in subsequent reports.
Each of these 4 issues are what American's must explore. American voters need to study the positions of both the Democrats and Republicans on these 4 issues as they decide the direction of the nation.
From the Cornfield, that's what I see is the number 1 question American voters must answer.
