If I was given the chance to ask a candidate for president a question, I would definitely have to ask them why they make all of these promises just to get our vote and then when they get elected into office, they do none of the things they say they were going to do. I get tired of voting for someone who says they are going to do alot of good things for the people but they onyl get in there and make things worse than what they were.

You are so right I think if you here someone making these certain promises well you should know that there are the wrong one to vote for. Too many of them go around making promises instead talking about what needs to be done

I wish I had this opportunity right now so that I could ask them what they intend to do about gas prices and why they cant' stop the oil companies from robbing us so bad. I don't honestly know how they think working families are supposed to make ends meet when it costs $50 to fill up the tank and then that covers driving to work and back. It is insane to have gas that is over $3.30 a gallon!! We as consumers need to figure out some way to boycott gas!! IT HAS TO STOP!!!

Why do 99.9% of politicians make promises they never intend to keep.?

Since I'm a member of FairTax.org, I would ask any candidate for president if he favors the FairTax Act in Congress (S 1025, H 25 - numbers for the Senate and House versions of the bill). In 2008, the only candidate who will get my vote is one who favors the FairTax Act and abolishing the IRS. So far, there are 60 of our congress members in favor of the FairTax Act. We need to get more to back it.

I have mnay questions I woud love to have answers to, one has already been said about health care. Another of my questions would be: How come our country sends food and support to other countries but we can't even help our own. So many of America's children go to bed hungry, actually they don't even have a bed to go to. Why don't we help our own first?

That is a great idea...but...which one is going to give me an honest to the point answer? I am afraid if I want real honest answers that don't beat around the BUSH, I might have to go somewhere else to get them. Can I trust a politican to tell me the truth or what they think I want to hear, which is after all their main expertise? I still haven't answered your question...but I would ask them when they are going to get around to changing the tax system? How they would change it and whether or not they are going to stop all these free handouts to all the people who claim to be victims. Wake me up when I get an honest answer.

I would first ask him if he was a lawyer,and if so,would he respect the conflict of interest guidlines set out in the law. 85% of the laws on the books were put there by lawyers we put in office to help run the country and make living better for the people,unfortunatly,they do nothing more than make useless laws so they will be able to make more money when they return to their law practice once out of the government. If he responds with a positive answer,I will then ask if he will veto the laws put forth by his fellow lawyers in the government. Blessed Be.
