Voting Rules
Vote up the political issues that concern you most in America today.

What are the major 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 in the coming years and election cycles? And are you concerned about something even if it doesn't directly affect you? Vote on this list of the most important current political issues to make your opinion heard.

Which political issues matter to you most? Vote down the ones that are irrelevant or that distract from what America and US politicians in the government 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 should matter to all Americans, then vote them up!
