As this writer looks out over the political landscape, he is amazed at how irrelevant the content of commercials and debates really are.
The debates seem to be scripted and choreographed in a style fashioned after TV’s Professional Wrestling. Except that Pro Wrestling is little more than relatively harmless entertainment, while these presidential debates are supposed to provide facts and substance upon which American voters can make reasoned voting decisions. Edward Bernays himself would be proud at the scripted and choreographed manipulation of Public opinion into which the debates have devolved. http://goo.gl/2bnKo - http://goo.gl/RIEXU - http://goo.gl/wpMnq .
Not satisfied to allow the American Public be manipulated by the one and only one ruling class pretending to be two political parties, this writer has compiled his list of Debate Questions that should be asked, but won’t. This writer energetically requests his readers to seek answers to these questions from not only the presidential candidates but from every appropriate elected official running for a political office that for which they can cast a vote. Please do not allow the 2 major political parties to define the issues important for this election. Determine what issues are important for yourself, and ask question to inform yourself so you can cast your vote in a manner consistent with your own personal best interests.
DEBATE QUESTIONS THAT MATTER

Where do individual citizen’s rights come from?

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst, how would you rate the corruption of our Federal Government?
On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the worst, how would you rate the corruption of our Federal Judiciary?
Should the anti-Congressional Insider Trading Bill be redrafted and re-passed to take out the exclusion of wives, children, parents and siblings from prosecution? In other words, so insider trading applies to politicians in the same way it applies to the rest of rank and file America?

Is the Federal Reserve Bank a part of the Government or a privately owned Bank?
Quantitative Easing III aka QE3 proposed to print $85 Billion each month to buy bonds until the end of the year. And then $40 Billion per month to buy mortgage backed securities until the economy gets better. http://ti.me/SlPzzt http://t.co/wsHpAWJa
Who will own the $40 Billion in mortgage backed securities? The private Federal Reserve Bank or the US Government?
Isn’t QE3 really just a way to flim flam the middle class into another massive wealth transfer at their expense and make America vulnerable to having to join a New World Order? http://youtu.be/wnjoGWWjsHo
The Federal Reserve Bank’s private owners currently get paid $25 Billion per year representing a 6% return on their capital investment. If we are going to print worthless money, why don’t we buy out the capitalization of the Privately owned Federal Reserve bank so that the $25 Billion per year goes into the government general fund instead of the hands of private bankers who use it to make campaign contributions, even bribes to cause our elected official to abandon the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE?
It is estimated that there was a 16 Trillion dollar wealth transfer from 2008-2012 in the stock and real estate markets. Do you accept the assertion that the most of this wealth transfer was from rank and file Americans to Politicians and their friends and campaign contributors?
Do you believe in the progressive assertion that rank and file Americans are essentially too stupid to know what good for them and there for government make decision without their consent and, further, may ethically mislead them for their own good?

In observance of the Kiss Principle, I am limiting the questions to this length for now.
It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.

Those were my thoughts.
