List Rules Vote up the political issues that you are most concerned with.

What are the political issues that concern you most right now? Political issues today run the gamut from domestic and foreign issues of all kinds. Are they national security or economic? Social issues or legal? What should we be focusing on most with the 2016 election starting to come into focus? And are you concerned about something even if it doesn't directly effect you? This political issues list lets you have your voice heard.

Vote up the topics on this list of political issues that matter to you most, and downvote the ones that you think are irrelevant or that are distractions from what America and US politicians should really be focused on. And if you feel there are any issues not on the list that are important to the future of the United States, feel free to add them. There are more than enough issues for everyone out there to have a spirited debate.

No matter how you feel about these issues, or what side of the debate you're on, as long as you think they are important topics that matter to all Americans and should be the focus of the 2016 election, then vote them up!

Free Speech


Free Speech is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list Political Issues That Matter the Most Right Now

It’s the bedrock of the Bill of Rights, but what constitutes free and protected speech is debatable. Can people just “say anything they want” over any media, or are there limits even to that?
