Patch Is Collecting Questions for Obama and Romney During 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.

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 Lakewood Patch 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!

I would ask each candidate what qualities the other person possesses that would make them a good president. I know it sounds a little cliched. But just once, wouldn't it be nice, if they had something positive to say about one another.

I would ask each candidate whether their higher value is liberty or equality.

Mr. Romney, in your first debate, you said you didn’t plan a huge tax cut for all Americans, including millionaires and billionaires. However, this is contrary to your own videotaped comments a few months ago when you said: “We are going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent, including the top 1 percent. “ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJzUQwJFW7k Which is the truth, Mr. Romney, and why did you lie? Mr. Romney, you said that your healthcare plan will cover pre-existing conditions, while leading news media and your own campaign have said this is FALSE. Why did you LIE? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/05/opinion/krugman-romneys-sick-joke.html?_r=0 http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2012/oct/05/mitt-romney/mitt-romney-says-his-health-care-plan-covers-pre-e/ Mr. Romney, you own or have owned several bank accounts in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands and Bermuda, and you have control over where those funds go, as you have admitted. Why are you betting against America with those foreign funds? And, are you receiving any funds, directly or indirectly, from Communist China in support of your election? http://www.vanityfair.com/politics/2012/08/investigating-mitt-romney-offshore-accounts http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9DVKWhPibw
