The State of Our Union

Welcome to another school year, and of course, a big welcome to the new crop of AP Gov't students. (alumni still welcome!)

We have a lot of things going on in our country and our world right now... midterm elections coming up, a president with low approval ratings, more people know who Homer Simpson is than Tony Blair, etc. What concerns you? Which issues are you thinking about and bothered by?
