07/08-Questions for the Candidates.

I ganked this from a friends page in 08. I KNOW the numbers have changed.

Considering that one of the Presidential shall become my (and every other US citizen’s) employee, I have a few questions for them.

* America is $9 trillion in debt. Does this concern you, and if it does, what would you specifically do to work toward eliminating this debt and shave the flagrant waste and corruption of out-of-control bureaucracies?

* Do you think too many Americans receive a paycheck, one way or another, from the government?

* Do you believe the average American is taxed too much, not enough or just about right?

* Name three specific agencies or departments of the federal government you believe could either be drastically reduced or eliminated. Now name five more.

* Approval ratings show that Americans are disgusted with politicians. That means you, regardless of political party. Why do you believe this is? What are you going to do about it?

* If “None of the above” were listed on the ballot for president, do you believe “None of the above” would win? Do you know why?

* Would you support changing tax day (April 15th) to the Monday before the first Tuesday in November (the latter being Election Day)?

* As commander in chief, if you could personally shoot Osama bin Laden, would you? What caliber of weapon? Where would you aim?

* Is defending our culture worth going to war?

* There are scientists who believe global warming is much ado about nothing, pure bunk. Do you think these scientists could be right?

* Do you believe gun control is effective at stopping or reducing crime? Can you share some evidence to support your answer?

* Do you own a gun? Do you trust me carrying a gun? If our taxes didn’t provide you with unlimited armed security, would you carry your own gun?

* Do you believe that animals have rights? What is your favorite barbecue recipe?

* Do you believe that the answer to a better education system is to spend more money and make children take more tests?

* Why do you believe that the history of war and the study of the U.S. Constitution are basically ignored in our schools, as well as taxes and the Internal Revenue Service?

* One-third of Americans shop at Wal-Mart each week. Over 80 percent of Americans have shopped at a Wal-Mart in the last year. When was the last time you shopped at Wal-Mart?

* As president, if you knew a terrorist group was planning on setting off a biological, chemical or nuclear weapon in New York within 24 hours and one of the terrorists was in custody, and if the only way to get information about the bomb’s location was to torture the one in custody, would you authorize torturing the individual?
