Awesome job so far, thanks guys. I love some of the stuff you've brought up.

I think the question about the CIA and it's viability is extremely pertinent and one that should have been being asked for years now, but we all know
(or most of us do) the control the intelligence agencies, and specifically the CIA, have over our government and the media. For those reasons alone
this question would get scrapped in an instant. I also would love to see some questions about UFOs. For such a widespread phenomenon, the amount of
coverage it gets by mainstream media, scientists, and academics (little to zero) should tell us exactly how important it is. Again, something that
will never be asked, but should.

Awesome job, Qemyst. I loved every one of your proposed questions, especially the one about the fact leading our country is a privilege and should be
treated as such. You'd think a candidate who truly wanted to win would take a stance such as this to really show the middle class and the vast
majority of voters that they are someone who can be trusted. Taking a pay cut doesn't show complete honesty, but boy, that would be a hell of a start

Another great question. One which would allow for a whole bunch of lies being spewed from their mouths but nonetheless I think it brings up a good
point that the Presidency itself is a job that has become overinflated and honestly does not hold as much weight as most Americans give it. Obviously
the President is the most powerful man in the world, in terms of government, and I feel especially in Romney's case that some people just treat it as
another stepping stone in their career. If they were not paid as much and the benefit of the job was leveled out more in touch with how truly
difficult and important the position is, I think many people would be less apt to run for it. We in America like to create a feel-good fantasy around
everything and pull the wool over our eyes, but the true grittiness and difficulty of the task at hand gets lost in all that muck.

From what I can understand, no it is not. Just a hypothetical.

This is certainly the most important question of them all, and one that involves many intricate answers, some we may not even be aware of yet because
we have yet to delve into the true complexities of why as a nation we are failing. Once again, a question that would receive a whole lot of fluff in
their answers, I hear them saying something like, "Well, America IS the greatest country in the world." And, you know, it some regards it certainly
is. But we have taken a wrong turn and are currently in free fall as we have driven off a cliff and many people just want to claim American excellency
while not doing the things to back up the claim.
