    1) Civil Liberties
    2) Health Care
    3) Development of renewable energy

    I don't trust McCain to act in my interests on any of those so that makes my choice fairly clear. If I thought Nader or Paul would actually have a shot, then maybe I'd vote for one of them, overall I do like Obama and Biden and their views on most things, but Obama's vote for the FISA bill makes me less comoftable than I'd like to be about how much he actualy values my primary issue, but at least I think he will be more motivated to pursue renewable energy as a priority and McCain's ideas on healthcare do not seem any better than what we have now.

    The economy and education are also important to me, but would be ranked 4 and 5 repectivly and on both of those. I think the green new deal idea that Obama has hinted at could be a viable path toward economic recovery. I like that Obama seems concerened about Education, but his big push saying we need mroe focus on "math and science" concerns me, no no no!, we need more emphisis on helping kids discover what they are good at as individuals and encouraging their growth on a path thats right for them (and for some that will be math and science) not this same old force kids to learn what we think they should learn approach! If you foce kids to take classes they don't care about, they are not going to get much out of it, and putting them in those classes takes time away from them potentialy learnign things they could excell at and get motivated about.

    Man--about education, since I labeled it my #2 concern. Why on earth would it be a good idea to have someone bypass certification just because they're war veterans? What. The. Fuck. Lateral entry teaching is already kind of a stupid idea... not always a disaster, but often enough that I think it's fucking retarded that someone would suggest that we just let the veterans go teach because they're veterans and not because they're HIGHLY QUALIFIED.

    I don't think it's really about the kool aid. There is kool aid, to be sure, but the problem with LE is that teachers are thrown into classrooms (or throw themselves into classrooms) with no prior education in pedagogy. As such, students have crappy teachers who have never been taught what a good lesson plan looks like. Just because you can do math doesn't mean you can teach it.
