Real Talk About “Domestic Issues”

Tonight’s debate was supposed to be about domestic issues, and it was to some extent but the majority of domestic issues like the environment, women, LGBT rights, immigration, were left out.

I’m tired of social issues being treated as secondary. Social issues are just as important (and to some people more important) than the economy and healthcare. I’m sick of issues concerning minorities and women being seen as less important because they don’t affect white men.

    I think health care can def affect those groups but I get what your saying. I guess that’s the ‘safest’ issue to talk...
