    A Gallup poll shows that 82% of Americans see terrorism as a critical security issue - more than any other issue facing the US over the next few years.

    Terrorism beat out the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, India/Pakistan, Russia, and China, as well as the tides of immigration and economic competition from countries with lower wages.

    I can understand the immigration, but what does economic competition have to do with national security?
