Patch Is Collecting Questions for Next Presidential Debate

Submit queries in comments and Obama, Romney could be asked them at Oct. 16 Town Hall.

If last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance for the presidential candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University in Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

Most of what matters to Americans is nowhere to be found in our national debates.Penal policies vividly illustrate this point. To both candidates: 1. America imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation on earth. With less than 5% of the worlds population, we have almost a quarter of the world's prisoners. What will you do to reform the so-called "war on drugs" policy that has failed us all and has by far imprisoned more men and women of color creating a racial disparity? 2. Why have there been no prosecutions or convictions on Wall Street? 3.Why were Geo.W Bush, Dick Cheney, and Rumsfeld not prosecuted for treason to America?

So David you honestly think that if you asked Americans what three things matters to them most one of them would be why Bush isn't in one of the overcrowded prisons or hanged yet?

Hey, man!--like, Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld are all, like, t-o-t-a-l-l-y, like (...pause to exhale large bong-load of dope...) uh, er--sh*t man!...bummin'...can't remember whut I...sayin'...--oh, ya!--like those dudes,... m-a-n!...like, they should all be, like, thrown in, like, prison fer LIFE, MAN!!!"

To both: Please discuss three policy policy issues you would address on Nov. 7th that would start improving the quality of life for the majority of American citizens in the coming year. We need help now! And how and when will we know that those policies worked or didn't work?

To Mitt Romney: The Dodd-Frank reforms were enacted to prevent another economic meltdown as we had in 2008, and they have made an impact. Your web site states that you want to repeal that Act and replace it with "a streamlined, modern regulatory framework". Please be specific and tell us what this framework entails. If your answer is as vague as your web site, please tell us why we should trust you to prevent another economic disaster?
