    On my phone when I try to edit, the software deletes the whole post. It's very annoying so I post my corrections below my posts. Rob

    I truly don't think you can vote by choosing only one issue.

    I think fiscal conservatism is a sort of meta-issue that covers a lot of ground. Requiring government to live within itís means forces an overall level of constraint on the degree to which it can control the individual in all kinds of areas.

    If you have to pick one thing as your criteria, thatís a pretty good one.

    I suppose if fiscal conservatism was my key top issue and neither of the candidates who could win the election were fiscally conservative iíd probably pick a secondarily important issue. Not helping to elect a man who actively sh*ts on the constitution would probably be that secondary priority for me.

    Remember when many of our members used to complain about that document a small group of evil white males who owned slaves wrote and called a constitution, and how it was out-dated and needed to be replaced? Something about it not restraining individuals the way they'd like because it was too busy restraining government. I know that was when we had the greatest President ever running roughshod over it, but still, good times huh?

    Not a good way to decide IMO. I do also think there should be some laws enforceable or else we have the wild west. (like now)

    Primarily the requirement to purchase a product you may not want, but also the military intervention in Libya, violation of the Takings and Due Processes clauses during the Chrysler bailout along with a host of others, take your pick.

    Really, what's different in your secluded zip code now that he's no longer President? Were you less prepared to abandon the US for greener pastures or hate the police less during his administration? Did the government provide you with more gifts to show the value of your citizenship?
