"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
I voted no, but the two questions weren't clear to me. Sadly I too didn't know, or remember that Iran had a coastlne. Once I heard it I remembered that they had submarines. I've been more involved in domestic issues then foreign ones, so I'm probably not the best one to answer the question. As for Romney's take on ships, planes, etc. that I absolutely new was a crock. I read years ago that one nuclear sub has more firepower then the entire Pacific fleet in WWII. Whoever prepped this guy for a foreign policy debate heaven forbid they are not the ones he'd actually ever use if, God forbid, he get's elected.
Last night, Free & Equal provided a forum (simulcast on several online and cable venues) for 2012 presidential candidates to debate actual substantive issues... rather than just the mostly irrelevant semantic "differences" between the two interchangeable corporate party candidates.
The corporate party's Romney will get the vote of people who have no hearts — people unable to empathize with others.
The corporate party's Obama will get the vote of people who have neither heart nor minds — the weak willed and weak minded who are uneducable.
Those who have both the heart to stand in support of truly sane and sensible solutions and the minds to understand that continuing the insane (R) & (D) corporate continuum will leave our children with no future worth having (if it leaves them with any future at all) will vote for one of the four on-ballot presidential alternatives who showed up at the Free & Equal debate.
The substantive differences between the alternatives was illuminated best by their answers to the 6th question: If you could get a Constitutional amendment approved what one amendment would you choose?

**VOTING ENDS AT 10:30pm EDT / 7:30pm PDT TONIGHT, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24**
NOTE: the Free & Equal debate forum was far better than the Democracy Now! Expanded Debates were, because Free & Equal did not waste time repeating the ridiculous (R) & (D) quarreling of the unfree and unequal corporate media events. The corporate party's candidates could have participated in the Free & Equal debate, but they didn't because the corporate party's Republicans and Democrats oppose all alternatives to corporatocracy.
People who vote for the corporate party's money manufactured candidates waste elections!
Protest votes were and still are the only votes not wasted.
How can the ignorant people of the US be expected to evaluate Romney's ignorance? It's the blind leading the blind.
