Ask a Question of Obama, Romney

Patch is collecting questions for the next presidential debate. 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 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!

American Capitalism systems need critical and major changes, or the entire world will be pulled down. I don’t care the right wings call it Socialism. Any political system is not good forever. When changes are needed, we cannot pretend the crisis is not there. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/27/us-france-budget-idUSBRE88Q1XM20120927 I admire what the romantic French have determined to do right things, and wonder why American cannot do the same. http://www.boston.com/news/world/europe/2012/09/28/look-france-budget/wztAHRcmAki5QCuyw5mpcJ/story.html http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/04/us-france-budget-idUSBRE8930CE20121004 http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-09-28/france-keeps-2013-budget-growth-targets-raises-taxes-on-rich.html

I HAVE A QUESTION-retirement is at age 65-67 so we need to work until then-but what happens when your place of employment closes down and your only say age 59 -have 35 years experience and you send out tons of resumes to potential employers and they say they looked at your resume but do not bite-how are you supposed to pay your bills?they say there is no age discrimination but I THINK THERE IS!(and i can prove it-because on the rare occasion when i do get called for interview and i happen to personally know a younger person who also applied they tell me there is no opening right now but the very next day they hire my friend!)

The presidential candidates should be asked: Do you support a constitutional amendment saying explicitly that ONLY natural persons, and NOT corporations or other artificial entities, are "persons" under the 14th Amendment, are guaranteed equal protection of the laws,etc., and that Congress has authority to impose whatever constraints it considers proper on contributions by artificial entities to political campaigns and political "issue" ads.

Why is every industry regulated except the oil companies in regards to adjusting the price of gas daily? Take special interest groups out of the government. Lets use our resources instead of buy oil from overseas. It will create jobs. Also lets get a real number for unemployment, instead of only counting the people who receive benefits! When you lose your benefits your no longer counted!
