    A: The economy is linked to many others issues like healthcare and foreign policy/trade. We need to solve for all of it but unless people are really working, businesses are investing and people are spending the country is not growing.

    A: Nothing will ever be accomplished if there is no compromise. The far left and far right voices are drowning out the voice of reason. No one is going to get everything they want. The continued polarization will accomplish nothing.

    A: Public financing of campaigns to level the field for third party candidates. Make it easier for the third parties to get on the ballot and allow their candidates in the debates.

    A: It all begins with electoral reform, which encompasses campaign finance reform, an end to gerrymandering, ending special interests and lobbying, imposing term limits on all candidates and ending the stranglehold of the two parties and letting third parties on the ballots and into the debates.

    A: I believe that by instituting term limits on congress we come one major step closer to cleaning the filth sitting in Washington. The term limits would still have to come with restrictions on becoming a lobbyist afterwards.

    A: I believe the two major parties have gone too far to the extremes of the political spectrum and abandoned the average voter.

    A: More effort needs to be put into reforming the public education system to allow better conditioning of America’s future through scholarship and career training. The educational system also needs much more funding to allow teachers to have a more livable wage.

    A: In my observation, the reason why there is a lacking in good candidates or why the most qualified doesn’t get elected is because modern media tends to treat politics more like a sport. With a combination of increasingly more polarized nature of politics, more extreme groups arise on both sides of the political spectrum. This also leads to a candidates getting support off of the the name of their party alone rather than what they stand for: just like how one supports a sports team.

    A: In recent years, gerrymandering has been one of the things to guarantee a political party’s, generally republican party, seats in local and national government. Reevaluating the rules on how districts are drawn and having them make more sense geographically can make a more fair election possible.

    A: If the United States wants to be the leader of the free world, it needs to act responsibly on the issue of climate change. Although climate change will affect the United States less than other parts of the world, we can’t claim to be the leader of that world, if we allow large swaths of people to be severely impacted by climate change. And, parts of the United States, in particular the Gulf Coast and the South, are going to experience real health and financial stress due to climate change. Those costs – financial and emotional – will be bore by all Americans and more so if nothing is done to mitigate climate change. The opportunity cost of having to pour resources into climate change affected areas, resources that could be allocated to better purpose, are only going to grow larger, if we do nothing.

    A: The economy needs to offer more opportunity for more people, and not continue on its current track of creating wealth and value for a small share of people.

    A: There really are too many issues that have become important to pick just one. But gerrymandering is an immense problem that stacks the government. Rather than representing real people & real districts, we have created ridiculous districts that make no sense & have very little in common. We should divide our states/counties, etc. in ways that make sense. Use counties (or combine counties); divide counties by region, etc. So many constructs of our government were created/are leftover from years gone by. We need to be more inclusive & more logical in our approach. Otherwise we continue to be divisive.
