    Is that the most pressing issue facing our country?

    I'm figuring they aren't going to pursue your agenda for you.

    It's just a wild guess but I'm betting there is some disagreement as to what is the most pressing issue facing our country. And that's not even including the next big things on the horizon.

    Forgive me. I didn't realize that the requirement for starting a new thread in the Politics section of USMB is that it had to be "the most pressing issue facing our country." It won't happen again.

    lol.. far be it from me to tell you what to post in politics so long as its a poltical issue. i was just wondering, i guess, why you felt it was an important issue.

    his election clearly changes the race issue in this country. But how much will be interesting to see.

    The next big issues will be...

    1. Probably 3 SC Justices resigning so the Saviour can stack the court
    2. Reparations for blacks...
    3. Fairness doctrine to replace FREE speech with government mandated speech....

    It did in Nebraska. State passed the anti-affirmative action constitutional amendment 2 to 1. Affirmative action is now illegal in Nebraska.

    Yes, I'm just kidding. I was discriminated against because of affirmative action several times in my life. Giving preferential treatment to someone because of the color of their skin doesn't seem right to me.
