After seeing the violence and corruption that was caused by the prohibition of alcohol, and the subsequent drop in crime and violence after it was legalized... do you see the parallels to the modern prohibition on certain drugs and the violence and corruption it has created? And if you do see the parallels, why isn't legalization being seriously considered as a way to end all of the needless violence and corruption taking place along the US border?

Question for Gov. Romney: Gov. Romney, you and Mr. Ryan have repeatedly said that your 20% across-the-board tax cut, coupled with elimination of exemptions and other deductions would result in a revenue-neutral tax environment. You and Mr. Ryan have said the math and studies prove this point. Then, when asked which exemptions would be eliminated, you both say that Congress will determine those later. How can you swear the math works when you say that half the equation has yet to be determined???

For Gov. Romney: Your party platform has a plank that will take away a women's right to make her own decision about her own body. Do you support this position of your party?

These are actually decent questions and not the typical "I am a long time resident of Homewood and am mad at all black people" questions. Very nice. I am impressed! God bless you. God bless America....ALL of America!:-)
