Why aren't the candidates talking about reforming trade laws that mandate all imports abide by American labor standards? This would bring outsourced jobs back to America as well as improve standards for foreign businesses that want to do trade.

Why aren't the candidates working to increase minimum wage?

Why aren't the candidates talking about reforming monetary policy? Currently the system is set up to give unlimited resources to banks and nothing to the people.

Why aren't the candidates addressing the fact that we're paying interest on a fake debt to the Federal Reserve? Where did the Federal Reserve get the money to buy Government debt? They created it from nothing.

Why aren't the candidates proposing reforms on drug laws that have contributed to the world's largest prison system in the world? A system for profit prisons are making money on...

Why aren't the candidates talking about ending the wars today and just staying out of the middle east's affairs?

Why aren't the candidates proposing medicare for all?

Instead of spending trillions destroying other countries (remember both Biden and Ryan voted to go to war in Iraq and all support Afghanistan) we should have been spending trillions on building our own.

Reforming policies on these issues would mean the top 1% all the way to the top .00001% would have to become part of the top 10% or even the top 20%.

This is why the top 1% all the way to the top .00001% are spending so much money on candidates that do not work for these issues.

Any decent candidate being would be slamming Romney for taking so much money, specifically from Goldman.

Any decent candidate would be slamming Obama for indef det and all the bombs (we were bombing pakistan during the VP debate, and over a dozen people were killed, more injured).

Any decent candidate would be slamming Obama for not doing a fucking thing about the banks.

Any decent candidate would be slamming Romney for being a rich, out of touch imbecile.

Any decent candidate would be slamming Obama for being a liberal and not pushing for marriage equality.

Any decent candidate would be slamming Obama for forcing people, unvoluntarily into the insurance cartel.

Any decent candidate would be slamming Baine and all their "great" jobs at Staple making $8.

Again, a serious lack of leadership in this country right now.
