Tonights debate, dream questions!Submitted by brassnut on Wed, 01/30/2008 - 20:57
Mr McCain/Mr Romney,
1. The US can have an aircraft carrier and fleet of the most advanced artillery and troop carrying craft anywhere in the world in 5 days, we can launch aircraft from the US and drop bombs anywhere in the world in 14 hours, and we can launch nuclear weapons hitting anywhere on planet in 30 minutes or less. Why do we need 700+ bases around the world to enable democracy?
If this comes down to troops on the ground and the super powers responsibility to defend freedom what is an acceptable cost in american lives, american treasure, and american civil liberties to defend global freedom?
2. What makes you more conservative then your competitors when your competition has;
-never voted for a tax increase
--never voted for an unbalanced budget
-GIVES BACK A PORTION OF THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET EVERY YEAR
-DOES NOT TAKE PART IN THE CONGRESSIONAL PENSION PLAN
