The question with the most votes WINS!

The Great American Think-Off committee has met and selected three choices as possibilities for the 29th annual Great American Think-Off question.  Just to shake things up a bit this year, the committee is asking the public to help us make our final choice!  Those choices are:

  • Does the American Dream still have meaning?
  • Which should be more important: personal choice or social responsibility?
  • Has the pursuit of happiness improved or damaged American life?
