#1. Do not mess with the second amendment. If we give in on guns we will open the door to all kinds of attacks on our freedoms

#2 Health care. I do not want my health care messed up. So far I have only about $280 dollars in bills for the 2 night observation stay and tests that found my cancer. After that all I have had to pay are small amounts for prescriptions, OTC medicine and supplies to keep the site of my feeding tube protected. Medicare and the basic level Blue Cross has paid the rest. And that includes coverage for my wife who temporarily quit her job the prevent bringing any diseases to me with my chemo compromised immune system. If we go to medicare for all, I can see increased premiums and lower benefits. Have a separate program for the uninsured, they deserve health care too. Just don't mess up my plan that I worked hard for and payed into for over 4 decades.

#3. investigations into all members of congress who became millionaires on congressional salaries. They want to investigate the President's finances, so investigate them,

Interesting question.

1) It bothers me pretty much every day that the technology I am using could be misused if the wrong people are in power.

2) Abuse of power by the media, big pharma, government, fed banks.

3) Lack of a positive vision that can unite everyone towards a better future. Most visions are negative. If everyone wants to think in terms of "I win & you lose" battles then we may as well be cavemen (& cavewomen & cave"inbetweens"). As much as we love to hate China (I dont hate or fear them at all) when you read their news they have something we do not. They have a positive sense of "we". Dare I say the WE are searching for a positive goal? People get duped into leftist media lies because they desperately, desperately want a positive goal. Ending racism is a positive goal. The problem is... there may be some criminal justice issues and social justice issues... but I think they need to create a racism problem in order to get their addiction 'fix' of feeling good about... fixing it. Some are so desperate to have a problem to solve they will detach from reality and create a problem that doesnt truly exist. Then they get the good feeling of solving it, even though acting out their pet drama requires that they become detached from reality.

I agree with LJ. Sure technology getting misused is annoying, but you have the choice to not use it. You have the choice to prevent all the things that Iowegian, and G.Kins are saying. You can not make sure that you are healthy and there is nothing you can do to get a family, that is YOUR family. I emphasized your, because it has to be right for you. And only your family, can do that. I think that someone saying that the government is a problem is a problem. How many people voted for Trump in 2016, and now wish they hadn't? It is their own fault that he is in power, so they should stop complaining.

I feel like I have a lot of control over my health. It takes some knowledge, yes, but if you can make a pumpkin plant healthy you can certainly make yourself healthy... yes, it can be a struggle though.

I interpreted the question to be top 3 societal/political issues, based on Iowegians answer.

I agree, you do have control over your health. But not complete control, you can do all the things recommended to stay safe from covid, where there are recomendations, and still catch it. Your health is impacted by what you do, but not as much as the government. Sure it's not the perfect system, and sure some people don't get what they want, but you can change what you did, and then you cannot complain. I can tell you how bad I think the government is, but it is better than others. I am not using the question as a problem, I am just stating that you caused it, and it is your fault. Just saying.

Term limits for Senators and Congressman.
Make election day a holiday or move it to the weekend.
Take away the Senate majority leaders ability to completely ignore bills passed in the House. All passed legislation in the House should be put on the floor debated then voted on.
More can be done but that's a good place to start.

Time to shrink the size of government and get something accomplished.

Each State gets one Senator.
Each State gets two representatives.
The president gets only one term.

#1Barack Obama and Joe Biden’s Presidential term from 2009 to 2017 did not want to or mess with the second amendment we all still have our guns and Are freedoms!
#2 20 million people have gained health coverage Due to the affordable health care act and guess what you still have yours they did not mess with it!
#3 Mr Donald Trump’s using his father’s money for businesses went bankrupt six times and until this day refuses to reveal his tax returns to any NY prosecutors. The courts keep granting delays in turning over records so how can they investigate! DUH!

I just wanted to see what is important to people. See what people really think, not that the party bosses and media tells them to think.What I learned is there are a lot of priorities, but getting rid of Trump is important to just a few. Maybe people will accept him if he addresses all the priorities successfully? Yes, there will be people who will be disappointed no natter who wins.
