I have written before that we do not ask enough or the right questions of our leaders and candidates. Why, what, how, when, where, how long and how much? If we would just ask the why questions more, we would be far better off.
Here are a few to ask:
Why have we not made changes to gun governance since the significant majority of Americans want certain measures?
What do you plan to do about our $19 Trillion plus debt problem, especially with the interest burden becoming such a big part of our $4 Trillion annual budget?
Why are we not doing even more to combat climate change (or in the case of some, why are you blocking climate change actions)?
Why are we not funding Planned Parenthood even more, when they help reduce unwanted pregnancies through education and birth control thus reducing abortions and healthcare costs based on actual data?
What do you plan to do about retraining people for jobs that have been reduced due to technology, declining markets, offshoring, outsourcing, etc.?
Why do some people feel they are more American than others based on race, religion, ethnicity, sexual preference, etc.?
Why must you be against something because your opponent is for it?
When did collaboration become a dirty word?
What data do you have to support your contention or plan or better yet, when did using actual data become a negative?
When did we start tolerating bigotry in our national leaders, especially since this has been a reason to not vote for racist candidates in the past?
There are many more to be asked, but we could start with these few.
