I am truly surprised that a US Presidential candidate has taken the time to talk to us "nut cases" ..
So all I can say is that I am truly honored by this, that we as a community on ATS are being looked at.
Now, my questions would be, as another poster already said ..
1. Would you really run with Dr. Paul? ..
2. Your views on NAFTA, Free Trade, the North American Union and American involvement in organizations like WTO, NATO, UN and the World Court.
3. Would you cut taxes, only for those making 200k and less?
4. What will you do to help poorer, and even middle class American's cope with the soaring and seemingly unmaintainable cost of higher education? ..
And the decline of elementary education in this country..
5. Some people have criticized your involvement with your wife, calling her a "trophy wife" .. I am honestly curious to know roughly what she would
do, what role would SHE play as first lady? Americans love an active first lady, but the past few presidencies have not given us anything notable.
Do you think she has what it takes to make a difference?
6. Out sourcing is a problem in many ways for America, how do you plan to deal with increasing globalization and the displacement of industries that
once held this country together?
7. How will you treat our Russian friends, when Bush entered office we where on friendly terms, now we are cold as stone.. can the damage be
repaired, and are you willing to change our close minded foreign policy to work with the Russians instead of mocking them and closing them out? I
believe the same could be said of French, German and Italian relations.
8. Our trade deficit with corrupt Asian governments expands every year, what will you do to combat the Asian exploitations of Free Trade and in
China's case benefits gained from the WTO?
9. Will you work to over ride the many, many Bush Executive Orders that he used to immorally void out laws that did not fit his liking?
10. How do you feel about the insulting treatment you received by the Main Stream Media?
11. Do you follow discussion on ATS? Visited the site before? Do you have a user name?
OK .. I hope you can use some of those Dave, or at least inspire a like minded question.
I honestly think this is amazing ATS was able to secure a visit from a Presidential candidate.
