Immigration is a hot-button issue for many voters. Candidates should give their views on whether immigration should be limited in order to protect American jobs and wages, or should immigration be expanded to provide more low-wage workers for businesses to hire. Candidates should also tell us whether they will rescind Obama’s executive amnesty and tell illegal aliens to return to their home countries. On the subject of education, will the candidates pledge to use the powers available to the president to cancel the use of Common Core in public schools and restore local control of education?
All candidates say they support jobs and the economy, although Democrats complain more about “inequality” while Republicans stress “economic growth.” All candidates should be required to demonstrate in detail just how their plans for taxes and spending will actually improve our growth rate, and reduce our national debt and deficit. Republicans candidates are often asked if they believe in the so-called “science” of global warming. A better question is whether candidates think we should try to reduce the earth’s temperature by forcing everyone to reduce energy use and potentially damage the economic growth on which human life depends. These are a few of the major questions which should be asked of all candidates.
