    Obviously, everyone will attack the OTHER party or answer with stupid prattle like "I want to hear how you'll stop the OTHER guys from ruining the party!"

    But what would you demand from your OWN party. A couple examples:
    At Obama: How do you justify continuing the Patriot Act and worse, signing NDAA without a veto or even a peep?

    At Romney: Why is your idea of lowering corporate and personal tax rates, and deregulating the banks, going to produce a different result than was produced under the Bush Administration?

    So what would you ask the leaders of your OWN party?

    Okay, what would you ask BOTH parties?

    I was about to get involved and answer the question, and then you had to go and ruin it with that... *sighs*

    There are more than two parties. Now I just see the exercise as pointless.

    Why ask any of them anything? All politicians are in the business of telling you what they think you want to hear, besides, I already know the honest answer they would never give to any question I could conceivably ask any of them: "Because my major donors told me to".

    I would ask my party to openly and vociferously affirm that Barack Obama was born in the USA. Instead of striving to keep a lock on the birther vote, show some goddam honor and integrity and get even more votes.

    I would ask my party to drop the asshole-ish Voter ID drive. Honor and integrity will get more votes.

    I would ask my party to endorse gay marriage receiving the equal protection of the laws. Again, honor and integrity. And the original ideals of the Republican Party.

    I would ask my party to pursue those on Wall Street who committed fraud and put them in federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison for life. If they need any names of fraudsters, I would ask my party to pick up a goddam newspaper and read it once in a while.

    I would ask my party to stop making the playing field for honest businesses more unlevel. Stop adding special interest tax break amendments to every piece of legislation that floats by.

    I would ask my party to put out an actual health care reform plan beyond "repeal ObamaCare". Show us you have more intellectual bandwidth than a bumper sticker.

    I would ask my party to endorse the repeal of the CFMA and the FSMA. Send the message that Wall Street is no longer going to be a rigged bucket shop. Investors are rapidly losing confidence. Capitalism is taking major hits.

    I would ask my party to stop stomping on the Fourth Amendment.

    I would ask my party to repeal the Patriot Act.

    I would ask my party to do what Bush wanted and let his tax cuts expire.

    I would ask my party to stop being a bunch of fucking hypocrites and to start working hard to restore their honor and integrity, because both are completely shot.

    I would ask my party to start offering up solutions instead of spending all its time explaining why they WON'T do something.

    I would ask my party to endorse the legalization of marijuana.

    I can go on all day.
