The debate last night on CNN was pretty good, although there were quite a few aspects that I didn’t care for at all. Mostly trying to limit the answers to 30 seconds. For many of the questions, especially those of the economy and how to fix it, 30 seconds just isn’t enough. You have to give some background information, and explain things that are basically a taboo on the mainstream news, such as the Federal Reserve, and our Monetary Policy. For our Foreign Policy, 30 seconds just isn’t enough to explain why we have enemies in the Middle East now, and why exactly our Foreign Policy has been flawed for decades.
Another thing that I dislike about the debates, is how they give each candidate a different question. Let’s ask one question, give each candidate 3-5 minutes to answer, and then move along to the next subject. As well as wasting time on silly this-or-that questions.
Questions that should be asked, but certainly never will:
The answers that the people need, and I hope are learning they will want, is simple. Bring our troops home, every single one of them. Stop occupying other countries with the 700+ bases that we have. Reform our Monetary Policy by auditing the Federal Reserve to expose what they have done to the people, and then abolish it. Lower taxes. Give the powers that are not reserved to the Federal Government in the Constitution back to the states as the founders wanted. More liberty, less government, the solution is that simple.
