1. Leaving Afghanistan where girls can’t go to school - forced marriages.

2. The border - drugs, human trafficking.

3. The highest cost of living for social security in 40 years.

4. “Climate change” - solar panels are from a communist country with child labor.

5. Semi trucks run on diesel fuel - we are depleting our supplies of diesel fuel - meaning food prices will go up.

6. As a senior citizen and on a fixed income and trying to get out of debt, but now I have to help someone that I don’t even know pay their college debt.

7. President Biden may veto anything the Republicans try.

8. Finally we live in a Republican state.
