Where They Stand: A look at the presidential candidates' positions on the five biggest challenges facing America
Comment: Pete DuPont sees these as the top five issues:
- America's fight against terrorism and its threat to our country
- Securing America's borders against illegal immigration
- Free trade
- Energy policy
- Economic policy
His conclusion: There are serious and substantial differences between the two parties and their candidates on significant elements of America's public policies. And that on each of these five important issues--protecting our country, securing our borders, encouraging international trade, generating our energy needs and promoting economic growth--the presidential election matters.
