Again what do you suggest


I'm working on a textual analysis for a class.

See example:

I strongly believe political issues should revolve around solving our debt crisis, our economic crisis, and less on morality issues that seem to only derive from one point of view.

Make certain that the assignment is asking you for your opinion.  Academic writing is usually in the third person.  Though a thesis statement may indeed be your opinion, you need to write it as if it were a fact.  You can use strong words to drive home your point in third person.  Should, may, and seem to,  are weak words.  Must and will are much stronger.


Watch out for your word choice.  Political issues should probably be political debates or discussions.  The issues are debt crisis, the economy, or morality.  Basically you are saying that issues should revolve around solving issues. 


"Revolve around" is a redundant phrase. 


Political debate must focus on solving the issues of the debt crisis and the economy, rather than opinions on morality.
