12. I might catch some flack on this, but....
The issue of gay marriage is hardly the most pressing issue facing our nation this year. Iraq, the economy, the environment--all of these take much more precedence in my book. Social issues in general will always arouse the emotions and passions but generally take a back seat when it comes to issues of national importance.

States issue marriage licenses, so states will inevitably decide who gets married and who doesn't. I don't see it as a major national issue. I know I might sound cold and indifferent when I say that, but going into the voting booth the issue of gay marriage is not going to the prevelant one crossing my mind.
