  1. Issues involving the nature around us. For example, climate change. We only have one Earth and if we have no Earth, then we cant solve our other problems.

  2. One of the main problems facing the government is gun laws. It is so easy for anyone to get a gun whenever they want one which shouldn’t be able to happen Especially in schools.

  3. I think a big problem with the government right now is allowing people who discriminate against other races to get power. If someone works for the government then they should 100% not being biased into making decisions that could benefit them and hurt others.

  4. One of the problems facing government is slow changes due to bureaucracy. While government personnel are aware of the need to implement change and have new technology ,they are bogged down by bureaucracy and limited to their access to resources.

  5. Much like a majority of my peers, I believe the main issue in the US Government today is the president making enemies with other countries. Just today, he raised tariffs on Turkey stating, “Aluminum will now be 20% and Steel 50%. Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time!” This is just one example of Trump placing tariffs on a country and ruining America’s relationships. Other examples include Canada and China. If the president continues to place tariffs, it is more than likely that countries will be angered by this, posing a threat to national security and the safety of United States citizens.

  6. Above the many problems in our government I believe we have a massive racist issue. From police brutality towards black people to Mexican families being torn apart. The thing that bothers me is all of the fake support for equality. Obviously we have to start somewhere but the government/ important officials just toss us a bone hoping it’ll curb the anger and tension from the citizens. Then they push it aside as if it isn’t an important issue. There isn’t enough work going into this matter and it’s ridiculous.

  7. One of the main problems in our government is that we have a leader who doesn’t promote what America should be about. America was originally created for people who wanted to get away from their unfair hardships and get an equal opportunity to live the Dream. Our president encourages division which only makes our differences even harder to overcome.

  8. I believe that one of the main problems that the government faces today is the imbalance between political parties. I feel like the government can’t get anything done because of the fact that representatives are in two different parties. This causes a stalemate in Washington, which causes none of the problems our country faces to be resolved.
