On the issues I'm just wondering what the most important issues are on the minds of Canadians on this board.

I believe in political liberties first, economics second, & social poliices third.

Political meaning reform, Monarchism v.s. Republicanism, small v.s. big government, etc.
Economics is a dead give away
Socially meaning SSM v.s. traditionalists, Polygamy,drug legalization, etc.

My choice was

Economic, Political, Social

I think that first and foremost Economy is the most important part of governance to me - if the economy is running well then it opens to door for both political and social reform.

Political is second because I think in this country we need serious reform in the federal-provincial jurisdictions. The Federal government needs to reduce its role to the fundamentals, reduce taxation, and allow the provinces to pick up taxation where it feels its necessary. Senate and electoral reform are also things I would like to see.

Social would be last, as I am not particularly socially conservative. Didn't agree with making SSM legal, but now that it is I don't think we can take it away. I'm a pro-choicer, so there goes that. Against Polygamy, against affirmative action and gender/racial specific programs(probably my single greatest socially conservative side), against drug legalization but open to de-criminalization of marijuana only.

I think the history of the world has shown, where there is no economic freedom, freedom of any other sort is in short supply. When you let in the free market, it seems that dictators eventually fall.

It all comes down to property rights. Without property rights any freedoms whether political, social or economic cannot exist.
