    What is your plan to help students with their crippling student loan debt?

    So far I like what Bernie Sanders has to say on the topic, but I haven't really heard anyone else.

      Yeah, I have a lot more than I would like to have, but many of my friends and family are well over one hundred thousand dollars... That's just absurd.

    Will you make campaign finance reform a priority in your administration?

    I really want to see some sort of challenge to Citizens United. Corporations are not people, and they should not be allowed to buy our elected officials.

      Lisa...Oh YES! Best of luck, girl.  Hasn't this been going round & round & back & forth forever? Is it possible to kill GREED & power?  Let's keep hoping!

    What are the plans to gain cohesiveness within our government and make actual progress toward getting along with each other to work FOR the people of this country? When is all the complaining, whining, and obstructionism going to end?
    Work a 40 hour week, quit taking obscene, expensive, extended vacations, act like you really care about your jobs, and GET THINGS DONE!
    Your job is to protect the welfare and well being of the people of the United States! Do it!
    Quit sending our soldiers to war with other countries, bring them home to protect our borders and put everyone to work rebuilding our infrastructure!
    Make foreign countries NEGOTIATE with us for their needs and wants. If they don't act like adults, then stop playing their little games and ignore them. Send them to "time out". Make Fair Trade actually FAIR!
    Make the government fiscally responsible and balance the budget! Make everyone pay their fair share.
    Think about becoming leaders of the technological world instead of consumers of cheap crap.
    Oh, the list is long, and we just don't have time for "politics". We need leaders who will WORK!

    Would you agree that an educated populace is our greatest recurring natural resource?  If yes, how would you cultivate it?  If not an educated populace, what would you say is our greatest natural resource?  And, how would you cultivate it?

    do you admit that supply-side economics (reaganomics, trickle-down) is a failure?

    I would only want to ask them IF first they were given a truth drug (the CIA have plenty of them), then if that were the case I would ask.

    Have you ever taken part in Satanic ritual abuse or rituals?

    Have you sworn allegiance or submitted your authority to any spiritual force, and if so which spiritual power holds authority over you?

    Have  you ever told a lie?

    If they answered no to the third question, I would know the truth drug did not work, so their first two answers would be false.

    Hmmm.. my only question for these candidates is this.. How did they get those big M&M's letters on those tiny candies?

      fpherj48posted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Frank....How DO they do that??  Who can place each piece of candy in a spot so that the "M&M" shows perfectly in the middle on each & every piece? Shall we elect the first person who has the correct answer?? This is seriously World-worthy inf

    Because most politicians are known liars, my question would be this.. 'Would you be willing to sign an affidavit pledging immediate resignation from the office of Presidency if ever proven that any of your campaign declarations and promises were lies?'  ~ YES or NO are only acceptable answers.

    1. fpherj48 profile image77
      fpherj48posted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Their answer would be a LIE....so, we may have to add that they will be subject to TERMINATION.  I doubt they would resign of their own free will!

    Paula, at the risk of you thinking I am a nut job, here is my question:
    What can you do to reduce or eliminate animal abuse in our country?
    Animals care more for people than people do for people.
    Animals, especially dogs, are the most loyal, loving protectors ever created.
    Animal abuse is as serious a crime as any other. 
    Can you or will you come up with laws so strict against animal abuse that people will think twice before hurting them?
    I know we face major problems in our country, but I say animal abuse should never be tolerated.  Any animal that is abused does not understand why.  It is a horrible thing.  To shoot an arrow through the eye of an innocent kitten (this happened in our town)...I can't even talk about it...
    Any candidate that defends animals has my vote.

      THANK YOU!  Another concern is the dangers of ISIS and what the candidate can do to eliminate this terrible evil.

    My question would be:  why have you forgotten the people you are supposed to be representing and allowed corporations and rich contributors guide your decisions?

      Cheryl, do you really not know the answer to that?  Corporations & wealthy contributors subsidize/enhance their measly $272,000+bennies regular pay.  They contribute to their Super Pacs which most people don't understand, needn't go for campaigni

    "Can you please write a 20-page or more essay on how you will reduce our bloated defense, state department and federal law-enforcement budgets so that the budget is balanced; while sustaining social security without raising taxes or damaging the economy?"

      O-E.....Nice of you to say, "please." The fact is they OWE us these answers and explanations!  They work for US!  That is the single most forgotten fact by any and all Politicians.  It's gone CRAZY! I like your question!
