4. The two are interrelated in my view.
You can't save the earth without making sure that everyone gets their fair and equal share of the benefits of society, and you can't divide the benefits equally without accepting that there is a limit to what the earth can sustain economically. That's why I want a candidate who is tops at both, while also championing democracy and civil liberties. Those are short and long term concerns. Of more immediate interest is ending the Iraq War.
