hipsterlibertarian:

The cool folks at DC Decoder are rounding up short sets of questions/expectations/hopes for the next GOP debate from a handful of political bloggers on tumblr.  I’m not totally sure what the end goal is, but it sounds like a sweet idea.  They were kind enough to ask me to participate, and these are the questions I submitted:

  • If you support a strong defense, do you want to keep our military spread thin in 130 nations and more than 650 bases worldwide?
  • If you claim to adhere to the Constitution, do you support undeclared by Congress — and therefore unconstitutional — wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and arguably Pakistan and Somalia?
  • If you claim to adhere to the Bill of Rights — notably the Fourth Amendment — do you support the PATRIOT Act?
  • If you are a fiscal conservative, name two specific spending cuts you would support immediately as president and estimate the amount each would save per year.
  • If you affirm the Declaration of Independence, please explain why the freedom to pursue happiness excludes recreational drug use which does not interfere with anyone else’s liberty, person, or property.
  • If you are pro-life, please explain if your principles extend to unborn Iraqi and Afghan children. If not, explain why not.
  • If you consider yourself a Christian, please quote any Bible passages you are aware of in which we might find Jesus changing people’s morality through legislation, keeping in mind that Jesus himself states that he supersedes the law of the Old Testament.
