Gov. Romney you mentioned in the last debate that you will build up our military. will you consider reopening of the stratford army engine tank plant in stratford,ct. that was closed unfairly when allied signal owned it. It was fasely reported that it was running at a deficit when actually it was operating with a surplus.When the plant closed those involved relocdated to other jobs. This plant made the only tank part in the country. It was a vital part of the area and one of the higher tax payers in that town. Its closing displaced thousands of people and many family business in the area that got business from those who work there folded. It was a very strong and vital part of the community that is now gone.

I would ask Mitt Romney: "Mr. Romney, why did you lie in the first debate about 3-4 times more often than President Obama. Fact checkers and leading media outlets like the Associated Press have shown you lied at least 27 times in the 38 minutes you spoke. You told blatant inaccuracies about your healthcare plan, about unemployment figures and other topics. I thought the Republican Party was the party of integrity. With all of your lying, how can American voters expect you to tell the truth with your promises to them -- should you win the election? "

Real simple for both Gentelmen: please look the American public right square in the cameras eye and in 200 words or less answer the following question "WHY DO YOU WAN TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'

For BOTH candidates: Do you believe that campaign finance reform, including donation and spending limits, as well as reporting requirements, are important in order to preserve the integrity and fairness of our elections? If so, what changes to current campaign finance laws and regulations would you propose?

For President Obama....You said that part of your plan to revive the economy is to make sure that young people have the proper education in order to secure a good job. But what about the older American whose job has been downsized or eliminated and where do these younger people go for work when they finish school? If there are no jobs, it doesn't matter how much emphasis you put on education.

I think you are lying about the lying. But while we're on the subject, isn't any lie wrong? Just because you claim Gov. Romney lied, does it make it right for the President to lie too? How about the president coming clean about the reals costs of the Affordable Care Act and the attack on the the embassy in Libya.

My question is: "How will America pay for its roads, bridges and transit systems in the future?"
Ignatius Reilly October 11, 2012 at 07:53 PM
For Obama: How are you going to make Science appealing to younger students so they can obtain the education to qualify some of the jobs that are readily available in our country? For Romney: Same question.
