Economy-Getting better, but a bit too slow.
Health Care: If you want to revamp it, put your money where your mouth is.
Education- We are getting outlearned by other countries. Perhaps we need to focus more on learning and less on standardized testing.
War In Iraq/Afghanistan- Is it worth it, or should we pull up and say you're on your own?
Environment- Something has got to be done about pollution.
Civility-So far so good, but how long will it last?
Govt. Spending-Get your priorities Straight.
I'd say the State is strong, but could be better!

Of Martin Luther King Jr. this week, what do you think the state of race relations in the US is? Since Dr. King’s time, things have improved, but they could be better. There is still raceism and prejudice towards other races, nationalities, and sexual orientations. Will we ever have a society where people are judges on their character, and not their color?

Political speech seems to have degraded into a shouting, name calling match like a bunch of school kids. Just because we differ on political views does not necessarily mean that one person is right and the other one is wrong. A Democrat's idea might be just as good as a Republican's, though they may differ. This does not give the 2 sides the right to go calling each other's names, and stir up their followers into a frenzy. This sometimes convinces the followers that violence is the only way to get their point through. Back in the old times, Politicians respected their political rivals, and when they disagreed with them , they tried to hash our their differences, and when they couldn't, they just agreed to disagree, and let the matter rest. People of both parties should try to imitate their predecessors in that respect. The public is getting turned off by these antics. They elected their Senators and Congresspeople to do the work they're supposed to do, not bicker and act like babies.
