"What’s the most important issue in the upcoming election?"

Reducing the size and scope of government and a 50% reduction in laws.

The economy is the correct answer AND the reason why Romney is above 50%.

"taking us down the same road as the Ragan deregulation, H W Bush bail out of the savings & loan institution G W Bush unfinanced war and brake down of the financial world."

What a mess. Okay, I'll proofread first. I think you mean Reagan. Period after H, period after W. Comma after institution. Period after G, period after W. Comma after war. In this case you need to use break instead of brake. Actually breakdown is one word. And although this is more of a fragment than a proper sentence, you should still capitalize the T in taking.

As for the factual errors, modern day deregulation began with Reagan. And it continued, uninterrupted, until Bush II. It included An agreement between the Clinton administration and congressional Republicans, reached during all-night negotiations which concluded in the early hours of October 22, 1999, settting the stage for passage of the most sweeping banking deregulation bill in American history, lifting virtually all restraints on the operation of the giant monopolies which dominate the financial system.

When in doubt, blame everything on Reagan. That's about as fresh as an Elvis joke.

Individual liberties.

With either candidate we all lose that front.

The best part about the election is my remote control. Debates and TV political ads are a big yawn.

The growing gulf between us and them, the gradual disappearance of the middle class, our continual state of war. Who would of thought a mormom and a half black guy would both be running for the presidency at the same time? We have come a long way, but as the late Jerry Reed sang, "there is a long way to go."

I still believe Roller Ball is around the corner unless big corporations are reined in

I really just want the election to over with cause it really just shows how flipped up the system has become.

Obama will likely win federally, but that is not much help because Brownwhack is going to have big majorities in the State legislature.

Remember that movie Pleasantville, well welcome to flipping Kansas cause that what you are going to get.

Flip the election.

It will soon be the rich and the poor and all the religious nuts in between.....

I just do not want to hear any of you jerk that vote or Brownwhack or his followers complaining when you cannot buy a TV due to the Sales Tax or a house due to property tax.

Both sales and property taxes are going to DRAMATICALLY increase when Brownwhack cuts the income tax for the upper classes and businesses….

How that helps the middle class is beyond me but in today’s flipped up system waving the flag, yammering about religion, yammering about guns, or insulting liberals that want to help people gets these whacks elected….

So, this state deserves what it gets…

Rachels little helpers love air horns. So always press '1' and give them a toot to brighten their day.

Castro, Chavez and Putin have all stated that they want our current regime to continue for another term. Which side are you on?

There will never be a bacon shortage. I just checked. My bacon strips are plentiful.

What’s the most important issue in the upcoming election?

Getting more American youth in this economy to spend their money, buy and invest in American offshore China made products like iphone5 and ipad4 so that whoever is in the oval office still gets a good retirement pension.

Rachael is pulling the card memeber card, huh..............

The major issue is that Budweiser was bought out by one of them foreign countries. Ownerships needs to be brought back to 'Merica.

And, yeah, that bacon thing....................

As long as Americans expect their leaders to fix everything for them, nothing will get done.

Rain is still a very important issue. There is still not enough water in my pond nor the local marshes. Duck season commences in three weeks and we need water. One cannot set decoys in the dust. It just doesn't work out well at all.

Hi, this is Rachael from cardmember services and we just wanted to now how much we appriciate your business. Is there anything we can do for you tonight?

Who can end robo-calls. Rachel from cardmember services is the modern Tokyo Rose and needs to be punished. I'm all for domestic drone attacks on call centers.

Is alcohol a factor? It seems to be a factor in everything lately. I don't remember the last day the LJW didn't have a story about alcohol relatedness. What the hell is going on? A new conspiracy to get people to stop drinking? That's what happened with smoking. When I was a kid everyone knew smoking was bad for you but back then people decided what was best for them. Now you're a pariah if you smoke. I can't even smoke in the damn doctor's office anymore. And I have to watch gruesome commercials of people showering with holes in their throat. Percentage-wise that doesn't happen often. Like mouth cancer from dipping snuff. Almost never. And did you know that the human liver can function at 7%? Beyond that your dead, but it would even take me a long time to get to that point. And how am I supposed to stop drinking if I have to read about it in the paper everyday. I'm gonna go have another cigarette and a martini. I've decided I'll water my vodka down with vermouth. Good night.
