Questions for the 2008 presidential candidates

If I were at one of these debates, here are some questions I'd like to ask the Senators from Arizona and Illinois.

Why are there only two of you here? Shouldn't Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney, and Ralph Nader be up there with you?

Why is it that all our states still handle elections differently, use a mish-mash of unreliable technologies, and voters are being disenfranchised in more ways than we can imagine? What will you do to ensure and let me verify that my vote will count, and that all of us will trust that the outcome of the election will reflect the will of the people?

Why are we at war in Iraq?

Why is it legal to profit from the provision of health care and health care insurance?

Was the 1999 Gramm/Leach/Bliley Act a mistake? Should we reinstate the aspects of Glass-Steagall which disallow banks to trade in securities and insurance?

Why are we at war in Afghanistan?

Why are federal military troops being stationed inside U.S. borders? Do you support that decision?

What do you think of the trend toward relaxing limits on consolidation of media ownership rules?
