FRC Poll - Issues Important to Americans

After reading about Ron Paul's great victory at the Values Voter Summit hosted by FRC (Family Research Council), I noticed and participated in a poll they had on their website.

Poll Question:

Which issue is the most important in determining your choice of candidate to support?

Results as of 5:00pm, 10/8/11:

9% Abortion
4% Protecting One Man One Women Marriage
8% Repealing Obamacare
1% Permanent Tax Relief for Families
4% Protecting Religious Liberty
13% Government Spending
1% Immigration
4% Education
2% National Security
3% Passing a Balanced Budget Amendment
52% Other

With 52% of the respondents choosing "Other" (including myself), this shows that FRC does not have a clue as to what is most important in the minds of Americans today.

As a pastor, I am dumbfounded at the ignorance of so many "Christian leaders", like Tony Perkins. It is clear that there is one VERY MAJOR issue missing from the list - "Restoring Government Submission to the Constitution" (or something worded similarly).

For far too long the political influence peddlers have successfully kept the American people polarized with single or sometimes dual issues. Now that many are awakening (thanks to Ron Paul's consistency and websites like the DP), the influence peddlers are exposing themselves as either out of touch, ie., being slow to realize what we consider important, as this poll shows, or as being devilishly evil by intentionally suggesting to the sheeple that single issues like the ones mentioned in the poll are important.

The good news is that more and more are waking up and we are slowly, but surely turning the tide. Keep up the good work, all you Ron Paul fans!

BTW, IMHO, RP's speech at the Summit is probably the best political speech ever made - bar none!! Pretty good sermon too!

Thanks for this information.

That is the problem: our leaders don't see the problem since most of them have the ability to hand out rewards. They always reward themselves for decisions, whether good or bad. They are good at making rules/regulations/laws and exempting themselves from any adverse effects. Which is why they don't understand the consequences of the last 100 years of bad policy decisions, both foreign and domestic.

Good post. Thanks for the personal perspective.
