Patch Is Collecting Questions for the Next Presidential Debate

If you have a question for the candidates, submit it in the comments section below and it could be asked during the televised Oct. 16 Town Hall Presidential Debate.

Hey Brookhaven and Chamblee residents, if last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance for the presidential candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University in Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

Patch is asking you, our readers, to participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch's parent company Aol, along with Google and Yahoo, to take questions from web users across the country.

Don’t wait until Nov. 6 to have a say in this year’s election. Share your thoughts in the comments!

Who, what and where is the Real Mitt Romney? Back in May, we see and hear him in a secretly recorded video giving some wealthy donors his political views on '47%' of the American people. This link takers you to the 47% video, and includes the 'missing minutes': http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/09/watch-full-secret-video-private-romney-fundraiser Mother Jones Magazine gives you the complete transcript: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2012/09/full-transcript-mitt-romney-secret-videoI It would appear that what Romney says in it, no matter what approval or disapproval you or I might feel, that he is speaking openly as himself, Mitt Romney. It should be a valid assumption that since he wasn't aware he was being recorded, those were his honest views. But wait! There is more! Since the secretly recorded video was released, he has more than once modified his statements from those he expressed in the May video: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2012/10/05/romney-47-percent-i-was-wrong/1614703/ There is an extremely high probability that the issue will be brought up at the next Presidential Debate. http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Obama-Romney-presidential-debates/2012/10/07/id/458944 If so, then you can compare his position at that time on his various 47% statements, and make your own determination as to which one represents the Real Romney.

To both candidates: Would you request Congress to keep the Estate Tax exemption at five million dollars or suggest they allow it to roll back to one million dollars?

For the last decade, the Federal Reserve has been following an "easy money" policy as part of its "dual mandate" to stimulate job growth. The Federal Reserve has recently stated that it will continue to follow this policy, and will be printing nearly a half-trillion dollars per-year in exchange for government bonds for the foreseeable future. Without a corresponding increase in GDP, it is inevitable that this action will be inflationary. Inflating the currency, which affects everybody (especially the poor and middle class) in order to fund government spending is in effect, a tax. After over a decade, it's clear that this "easy money" approach has not stimulated job growth, and is threatening the financial well being of our citizens; especially the poor (who spend well over 100% of their income on essentials) and the retired who are on fixed incomes and now make zero interest on savings. Will your administration consider relieving the Federal Reserve of its "dual mandate" so that its primary function will be monetary stability?

Question for Romney: You have been endorsed by the leadership of the NRA (not the body of it's members). Are you aware that there are members of the NRA who do not support you because of your gun bans in Mass? Question for PO: Do you think China is manipulating their currency unfairly, and are your fiscal policies related to China's falsified deflation?
