Question o' the Week: What is the single most important issue at stake in the November election? (Be serious, please. No conspiracy theories, birther crap or anything thrown around by Dinesh D'Souza.)
Melissa Kelly: Using economic policies which have been shown to work for recovery, even if not as quickly as we would wish; or going back to Voodoo trickle-down mythology and ramrodding our economy into oblivion.
Bilal Hashim: The economy.
Jill Butler: Not allowing the 1% to continue to milk the country dry.
Stephanie Burks: Women's reproductive rights.
Shane Crowe: National debt.
Georgia Casey Purvis: The economy is my biggest concern. This year, I have lost income at a time when cost of living is skyrocketing. I am truly afraid and disheartened. I have cut out nearly everything, and I'm still having a rough time. Anything affecting health-care funding will also affect me in a very direct way. So, I'm scared, not just for me, but for others in the same boat.
Elaanie Stormbender: National security ... without it, everything else is just chatter.
Toi Thomas: The economy.
Lesly Michals: Women's rights.
Davy Frazee: Having an election where third parties are fairly treated and not just pushed to the side by democrats and republicans. Vote Jill Stein.
Linda Albin McMurtrey: A fair and balanced economic policy. ...
Laurie Ross: Marriage rights for LGBT and reproductive rights for women.
Lindsey Lee: Education!!
