Patrick Barkman of Cleburne on List of Questions for Next President

3 November 2008 at 1:40:30 PM

Great editorial in the Cleburne paper

Will you pledge never to add signing statements to bills but rather show the intestinal fortitude to either sign or veto them?

Will you abide by the War Powers Act, which has been systematically ignored by every president, Democrat or Republican, since it was enacted?..
This has been the most expensive presidential campaign in history. National politics are corrupted by torrents of special-interest money. Will you support either the overturn of the Buckley v. Valeo decision where the Supreme Court decided that money equals free speech or public financing of campaigns?

Will you amend the loathsomely misnamed USA Patriot Act to conform it to the Bill of Rights?

Will you pledge not to allow the use of torture?

Will you agree to stop wire-tapping Americans without a warrant?

Do you agree with George W. Bush that the president, on his sole discretion and without review by Congress or the courts, can arrest American citizens on American soil and lock them up for the rest of their lives without a trial, formal charges, or access to the courts?

and more at the link, above.
