Patch Is Collecting Questions for Obama and Romney for the Next Presidential Debate

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.

Would you say your duopoly control over the Presidential Debates, is most important toward preventing an elevation in the discussion about balancing the budget, or more toward avoiding foreign policy criticism, as a reason to dismiss Gary Johnson, Jill Stein, and Virgil Goode?

What is it that President Obama has "quietly" told Putin in Russia that he will work on with him "when he is re-elected", and does Mitt Romney have any "plans" quietly in the works with any foreigner leaders that don't lead in the way the U.S. has in the history of our country?

The approval percentage of Congress is at an all time mainly due to their in ability to act and pass positive legislation rfat will benefit all Americans. In order for a President to achieve success and impliment your agenda you must have the approval of congress. How do you plant to work with congress and bridge the philosophical difference in congress that has halted progress in America?

HR459, S202 "The Federal Reserve Transparency Act" having overwhelmingly passed the House of Representatives now sits dying from neglect on Senator Harry Reid's desk. It's up to the Democratic Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate to bring "AUDIT THE FED" to a roll call vote. I've called him 202-224-3542 yet I see nothing about this in the news. We bombed Iraq in 2003 to return oil sales from euros back to dollars. Last year, Obama armed AlQuaida to topple Libya because the dinar threatened the dollar, and as soon as U.S. armed "rebels" shot Gadaffi, a "central bank" was set up. Is it a forgone conclusion that the FED will have us attack Iran because it sells oil to China and Russia for gold instead of dollars, no matter who the President is?
