    That you would ask the republican and democrat 2020 party nominees, if you could. (My meaning being, is a question(s) that you would ask both nominees, not of just one party or the other.)

    Your party owns half of a 22 trillion dollar debt, what do you intend on doing about this debt once you are in office?

    Republican Party: "Since you sold your soul to the devil in 2016, how are you enjoying the ride on that Boeing 737 Max and how long will it take to pick up the pieces after impact?"

    Democratic Party: "Everybody knows that you're not so much a political party as a collection of ideologies. How are you going to put together a platform that, instead of satisfying all of the crazies who self-identify as Democrat, actually appeals to enough voters to, you know, win the election?"

    I'd start by hiring people to tear down that hideous wall on the border

    When will you start treating the citizens of this country like people rather than voters?

    Trump: We're going to implement tariffs that the American people will pay for. That will show China!

    We aren’t, we are planing a secret Mongolian invasion in 2026 instead. Crippling their country.

    Do you have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to the defense contractors and get us out of the war for profit mode we've been in for decades?

    This isn't the biggest problem in our country. Remember when Cheney said "deficits don't matter".

    What people don't seem to understand is that 70% of that debt is owed to who?

    The American people in T-bonds.

    How can you justify the FED continuing to keep interest rates low? Isn't this causing more long time damage to the economy?

    True, it was just a question. But it was a better question than the softball crap the candidates get lobbed nowadays. Also a bigger/better concern than the concerns the presidential candidates feed their followers like immigration. If they actually gave a crap about immigration... it wouldn't be a problem. I mean we've had 2 centuries to correct it and have yet to do so. I read an article on immigration recently that showed that the rich made over 1 billion dollars holding illegal aliens in one year, may have been multiple billions. It made me see the "immigration problem" in a whole new light.

    "Illegal" immigrants pay over 12 billion dollars a year in taxes.

    This is one of the many things that goes completely unnoticed by those wanting them out.

    Companies, like the one Trump runs, hire them all the time fully knowing:
    • They can't get healthcare.
    • They can exploit their condition.
    • They can keep their wages VERY low.
    • They can fire them whenever they want.
    Now they've "misplaced" over 3000 children they detained at the border.

    Fucking SHAMEFUL...

    A pine tree because I'd pine for the good old MAGA days. Oh hell, I'd drink a beer, smoke a joint and say "What, me worry?"

    The question is would you hire them or simply welcome all the volunteers who want the Wall gone.
