http://dyn.politico.com/debate/republicans/VoteForQuestion.cfm
And dont forget to vote for them if you have not.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Q1. HOW TO FIND IT -> Currently #1 under most popular
Question on: Economy
Can you explain exactly what your definition of winning the war on terror (not limited to Iraq) is, when you think we will 'win', what you think it will cost to 'win', and whether you feel the cost today and in the future, is and will continue to be, major drain on the economy?

Moderator - please note this is solely intended to be a question about the candidates views on the impact of the war on terror on our economy (and is not meant to be a foreign policy or Iraq question).

--------------------------------------------------------------
Q2 HOW TO FIND IT -> Currently #2 under most popular
Question on: Foreign Policy (Not Iraq)
In the Florida debate Senator McCain said "we have American troops all over the world today and nobody complains about it because we are defending freedom. Thats one of the obligations of being the worlds super power." Do the rest of you agree with Senator McCain and if so, what amount of taxpayer money will you allocate for this obligation? Do you believe that a majority of American taxpayers also feel this obligation and want to fund the defense of freedoms across the world, while we lose our own.

Done, liked the McCain question too :-)

Puts McCain in some (needed) bad light, given his stance on overseas spending and military presence. Nice job on the questions!

I just submit this question

Since 1913 the US government has been borrowing money at interest from the Federal Reserve, which is a private a banking institution. Will you support the repeal of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and return the responsibility of our money supply to the hands of Congress as outlined in the Constitution, thereby eliminating all interest on our national debt? If not, how do you justify charging the American people over $400,000,000,000 a year to pay the interest on the national debt?

I think it is informative and traps them a bit.
Maybe I could have worded it better but...

done

keep on bump

oliver robert ike

Done!

Keep it going. :)

Lots of good questions

It seems that half of the questions in the most popular page are good questions that point to the problems in the economy. I especially liked this one (currently #20):

The financial communities are in turmoil. The US is $10 Trillion in debt. Our future is mortgaged to foreigners in the 3rd world extending us credit. We have no hope of paying except by printing funny money and crashing the dollar. Why has Ron Paul been the only candidate of either major party to point out that we, as a nation, are broke? And what would you do about it?

Hell 3 of the top 4 is about spending more money on NASA? WTF

I need a volunteer to post the next question

Can someone respond please

Why all the NASA questions

Why all the NASA questions on there? This goes to show how stupid many people are. The way our economy is going we'll be lucky to travel to Canada much less outer space... damn people.....

lol

yeah nice one!

lol

I needed the laugh. good one

please also vote for the

please also vote for the H.R. 1955 question, currently number 24 on the list of most popular.

Im going to add this to the main thread

Obviously I have to assume Paul is against this bill. Someone validate just in case.

ok

all four done

I liked the social issues question

instead of foreign policy,b/c it asks 'where would you cut budgets' and talks clearly about how we will begin taking loans [the gvmt]to pay for these services soon.
that is SO stupid-take out a loan to give people SS.
Anyway,RP would answer that by bringing in our foreign policy,so he covers easily two maybe 3 or more issues with that one question: economy,foreign policy,war and social security.

OK, I Voted for those two

Add my two votes. OK, now would someone please edjumacate me on what this is all about. Do you really think CNN will pay attention to this?

AND, just how many questions will there be - breakdown by subject? Shouldn't we be voting for a whole slate of questions on the entire variety of issues?

If you are not OUTRAGED, you're not paying attention!

Where'd They Go?

I don't see them at all.

Thanks Zackmario

Expose the chicken hawks

I think it would have put the neocons on the spot if you asked how they justify their strong support of the war on terror in the name of national security with their weak actions (as opposed to lip service) against illegal immigration. Illegal immigration is an issue that Ron Paul clearly dominates. For evidence, see this thread:

http://www.dailypaul.com/node/29948

I think Ron Paul could really expose these chickenhawks on their supposed concern for national security.

What's with SPACE?

When did NASA and space exploration become an important political issue????

wt?

I really hate seeing this kind of talk

I am not writing this to attack you, its really meant more as an attack on the establishments indoctrinations of the people over the last 8-10 decades.

"Do you believe that a majority of American taxpayers also feel this obligation and want to fund the defense of freedoms across the world, while we lose our own."

This part of your question shows that you BELEIVE in Democracy, it is ingrained within you. What the Majority feel or want, is Democracy. But the real question should be "How do you justify our Government having the Constitutional Authority to police the world and defend the freedom of other countries around the world?"

We are a Republic, RULED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND! Not a Democracy ruled by the feelings of the Majority.

People's Awareness Coalition: Deprogramming Sequence

you are factually correct

The issue is that the actions of the govt are not constitutional
But as I have said in earlier posts, I do not believe the average american knows, understands or relates to that.

Im trying to tap into a sentiment that I think is nascent but strong. I think the average feels NO obligation to "protect freedoms all over the world" . If any of the candidates say that they think Americans support this and are willing to fund it, a LOT of voters will stop and rethink the support of their candidate.

Am I wrong? Does the average american want feel this obligation? I REALLY want to know. I think I know the answer for us Paulites - what about the rest of the nation?

Congratulations everyone who worked on this

We now have both questions #1 and #2.

Lets start work on #3, #5 and #5.
