What SINGLE issue/concern gets you most fired up about this presidential election?

What makes one person so tied to one candidate and against another can be different, based on their belief system.

For me, this election is really a moral battle. The next president will likely have four Supreme Court nominations in the next few years. These nominations will shape the judicial outlook of our country for many years to come. If it's Bush, we will hopefully have pro-life judges, or at least conservative ones like Clarece Thomas.

If it's Kerry.... God help us.

That's what gets me fired up about this election.

Current:
1995 E-320, 163*** miles
1987 190-E 16-valve, 150*** miles

Former:
1980 300-D, approx. 225*** miles, donated to the National Kidney Foundation.
1980 240-D, 297500 miles, totalled when hit by innatentive driver. Missed dearly.

For me, it's the immoral slaughter of thousands of people overseas with no legitimate cause. I would like nothing better than to see GW held accountable for the mass murder he orchestrated overseas in a war crimes trial. Pro-life? Gimme a break.

Choosing between two candidates who are cardboard cut outs. Mere creations of the folks who funnel money into the respective parties.

Business as usual.[|)]

You hit the nail on the head for me. I can’t imagine the next administration being re-elected unless they somehow pull off a miracle, or truly educate the public about what’s about to happen and why. No new administrations every walked into the mess that is now coming down on autopilot. Please don’t say FDR, because this will make that time look like a cakewalk.
At least we have a chance with Kerry
Four more years of Bush, and we may have no elections!! Martial law’s a bitch. Think I’m over-reacting? Wait

The emotional level of the whole thing this time, from both sides. I'm tired of that alone.

I have put you on the "mass arrest" list down at the DNC. That'll teach you to be apathetic.

Murderous religious fanatacism directed at me

The moral, just war in Iraq...

...and around the world in pursuit of crazed Muslim nuts who's murderous ambition is to impose their anti-freedom, religious revelation on everybody.
