Questions Media Should Ask the Candidates

I don't know about you, but I'm not satisfied with the questions that the media are asking the Presidential candidates in the televised debates. Here are some additional questions I think would be good to ask the candidates.

Will you promise to nominate for the Supreme Court or other federal courts only those who believe in the Constitution the way it was written and who reject any notion of a so-called "living" Constitution?

What will you do, as President, under our present Constitution, to defend, preserve traditional marriage?

What will you do about the enormous subsidies of taxpayers' money the federal government is giving every year to single moms, thereby encouraging non-marriage lifestyles?

Will you support requiring employers to use E-Verify for all new employees?

Will you oppose amnesty for illegal aliens? Even under such euphemisms as "comprehensive immigration reform," guest-worker, path to citizenship, or legalization?

Since the underwear bomber at his trial pled guilty under U.S.law. but claimed he was not guilty under Islamic law, isn't it important for U.S. courts to be forbidden to ever use foreign law in deciding cases?

Do you favor defunding Planned Parenthood?

Since China joined the World Trade Organization, we have lost 2.8 million jobs, largely in manufacturing. We now have nearly 10% unemployment and many more underemployed. What is your plan to restore well-paying manufacturing jobs?

Will you support the pro-life plank in the Republican Platform is adopted at the Convention in Tampa next year?

Will you reject all attempts to impose federal academic standards or curriculum on schools?

Will you oppose all effort to call a Constitutional Convention for any purpose?

Will you promise not to appoint any Czars?

We would all like to hear the candidates answer these questions.
