Here's an incomplete list of questions we should all be asking ourselves about the remaining candidates? And maybe, just maybe, the corpstream, lamestream media ought to be asking these questions at the entertainment debates, instead of the weak, candy-ass shallow questions they tend to ask. "Diamonds or pearls?" Unbelievable!
-Which candidate will be most independent in dealing with corporations?
-which candidate appears most willing to break out of the usual and customary game in washington D.C.?
-Which candidate will stand up to lobbyists and corporate interests?
-which candidate is most willing to "shake things up" in Washington?
-Who will get the US out of Iraq soonest, who will keep us there the longest?
-Who uses fear as part of his or her campaign?
-Who will really make changes happen?
-Who has talked about the kinds of changes with the most specificity, with the most vision?
-Who has the strongest, smartest vision for truly protecting America and Americans, long and short term from terrorism and terrorists?
-Who is most directly and honestly talking about and addressing the economic disaster America is facing?
-Who has proposed serious, credible solutions to the economic disaster the US is descending into?
-Who is talking about the healing and repair challenges the US must face in cleaning up the destruction and mess produced by the Bush administration?
-Who is tough enough to face the brutal, cruel Washington political scene?
-Who has the integrity, polish, honesty, kindness and compassion to re-establish the US as a respected nation in the world?
-Who do you trust least-- the most likely to lie, deceive, offer half truths and cooked "facts" like Bush and Cheney did?
