There is an election on Tuesday, and so far, both parties and all candidates have been silent on three big ticket issues.

First, Congress: The money-awarding institution does not even know how much it is spending on the military. Should not the Republicans and Democrats be blaming each other for this?

Second, our failed perpetual oil wars policy has destroyed civilians, soldiers, countries, environments and created chaos in foreign relations. Why don’t we debate foreign policy in this election?

Third, climate disruption, extreme weather and drought all deserve addressing by the government. Where is the discussion? Could it be that voter apathy is a product of irrelevant politics?
