What is the most important political issue for you personally? What is the issue you vote on the most? Abortion? Taxes? Size of government? For me, it's the size of government. I feel like it's always the most important issue in every election. Ultimately we're deciding what role we imagine for government in society. Personally I want as small a government as possible while still having enough services to provide for the less fortunate. I'm always going to side with the politician or party who is going to reign in the government and give us as much economic and personal liberty as possible.
