Questions To Ask Presidential Candidates

When you have the opportunity to question people who are thinking about running for President in 2016, here are some questions to ask so you can find out where they stand on the issues.

First of all, the immigration/amnesty issue. Will you demand that an effective fence be built before we admit anyone over our southern border? Will you demand enforcement of the law that requires employers to use E-Verify when they hire new employees? Will you demand enforcement of the law to track visitors’ visas so the visa-holder can be invited to depart from our country when his visa expires?

Will you demand that we terminate or renegotiate our “free trade” agreements that actually are a cover for outsourcing good American jobs and in-sourcing so-called “guest workers” to take jobs away from Americans?

Will you support parents’ right to direct the raising and education of their own children? Parents, not the “village” or judges, must have the right to make decisions regarding what is in the “child’s best interest.” Will you vote to repeal the legislative and financial incentives that discourage marriage and promote illegitimate births? Will you support the right-to-life plank that we have honored in the Republican Platform ever since 1984? Since the majority of the people in 35 states have voted to keep the definition of marriage as the union of a man and a woman, as it has been recognized in our law for millennia, will you support congressional action to prevent a few supremacist judges from overturning that law, making us subject to what Abraham Lincoln warned against: “that eminent tribunal”?

Will you oppose all United Nations treaties because they all cut away a piece of our sovereignty?

You should insist that Presidential candidates answer all these questions before they get your support.
