With the last debate coming up there are many questions that people want to ask the candidates. I would like to see a discussion on Supreme Court Justices, the Abortion question, and more specifics on the role of government (large or smaller). What questions would you like to ask the candidates?

The questions you asked are good one but I have some question that I would liked asked. How do you judge the inflation threat, and what will you do about it when you become President? While currently limited largely to commodities including oil, food and basic industrial and construction materials, should monetary policy be used to try to drive down the prices of everything else at the cost of slow growth or even sustained recession? Or do you wait and hope that the commodities inflation does not taint the rest of the economy and create a virulent inflationary fire that will be even harder to put down? How will your assessment of the inflation danger affect your other policies health care, infrastructure, etc? Will you subordinate various expensive programs if deficit spending to achieve them would exacerbate the inflation? Are you for a strong dollar, or will you continue Bush's policy of letting the dollar sink? Today, for the first time in living memory, there is a risk that the dollar, if it continues to slide, would be replaced by the Euro as the global store of value. The United States benefits from the dollar's unique role in the world. It has permitted us to have influence in many ways, such as disrupting financial flows to adversaries such as Iran and North Korea. With international contracts denominated in dollars, we gain unfair advantage over all other currencies. Are you prepared to protect the dollar and drive its value up or not?
