It struck me after the two extremely lame Democrat “debates” that a lot of questions just didn’t get asked –- and will no doubt NEVER be asked, let alone answered, as long as the moderators are from NBC and MSNBC.  (Rachel Maddow?  Come on!)  So here’s my list of 20 questions for their next “debate,” some serious and some just for fun.

1.  As a progressive, you want to restrict or perhaps ban gun ownership, but you also favor open borders.  If you open the borders and don’t have ICE to police people coming in and what they are bringing with them, how will you address the huge black market of guns for criminals after limiting or even destroying the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans?

2.  If you believed a presidential campaign was using foreign interference to affect the outcome of an election, you would be extremely concerned, would you not?  Then why haven’t you criticized Robert Mueller for not investigating Christopher Steele’s Russian “dossier” that was intended to help Hillary Clinton?

3.  (for Julian Castro)  You said that “reproductive justice” should be offered to trans women who might be too poor to exercise their right of choice, meaning have an abortion.  Would you please explain, in complete detail, just how a trans woman, who is biologically a man but identifies as a woman, can become pregnant and possibly require the services of an abortion doctor?  Take all the time you need.

4.  When you start printing all the money you’ll need to pay for “Medicare For All” (including illegal immigrants) and debt-free college, along with the millions and millions of forms for all the paperwork, how many square miles of forest do you think you’ll have to cut down to make that much paper?

5.  When our country goes the way of Venezuela, in a scenario that makes the Great Depression look like Shangri-La, utterly broke because of wildly uncontrollable spending on “free” stuff, will you still have the ability to somehow blame Donald Trump?

6.  In the past, Barack Obama expressed opposition to same-sex marriage.  (So did Hillary, by the way.)  Since leftists never forgive people for what they’ve said many years before, does this mean that when the Obamas create TV and movie projects under their new entertainment contract, you will boycott them?  Will you encourage film crews not to work on their projects?

7.  The Democrat Party is so far left now that it can’t even see the center.  Please explain why you, personally, should be considered the MOST radical of all the candidates and therefore qualified to be the nominee.

8.  (Part 2)  Then, after you win you party’s nomination, what are you going to say to fool moderates into voting for such a radical leftist as yourself in the general election?

9.  (for Kamala Harris)  With the economy roaring and unemployment rates for blacks and Latinos staggeringly low, why are you talking as if we were all living in the 1930s Dust Bowl and needed to help starving families put food on the table?

10.  To prove you are a dedicated progressive, please explain why a self-identifying Cherokee Native American such as Elizabeth Warren –- the only “indigenous” person in the race, and also female  –- shouldn’t immediately be proclaimed our next President by universal affirmation, out of fairness and the rejection of British colonialism.

11.  (for all white male candidates)  How can you possibly justify running for President at all when it’s time for a woman –- ideally a young, non-white, bisexual, bipolar, vegan, Marxist, HIV-positive plus-size trans woman –- to lead?  (You don’t have to answer, Pete Buttigieg, as your gayness places you in a historically oppressed group and cancels out both your whiteness and maleness.)

12.  (for younger candidates)  Just about every demographic group in America is subject to some form of discrimination, especially older professionals in the job market.  You profess to be strongly opposed to discrimination.  At the same time, you make comments about “a new generation of leadership” and “putting a fresh face” on the Democratic Party.  Here’s your question:  Are you only ageist when you think it will benefit you personally?

13.  Show of hands:  how many of you have personally invited an illegal immigrant from Guatamala or El Salvador into your home to live?  Do not count your live-in maid.

14.  (for Marianne Williamson)  You said last time in your closing statement that as President you are going to “harness love” for political purposes.  Did you get that idea from Bill Clinton?

(Incidentally, Williamson tweeted this in 2017:  “Just beneath the surface, this isn’t politics it’s black magic.  Entirely a psychic battle.  Use your shield of Virtue and your sword of Truth.”  In the '90s, Williamson attended a New Age retreat at Camp David with Hillary and Jean Houston, whom you might recall conducted those sessions with Hillary that sort-of "channeled" Eleanor Roosevelt.)

15.  (for Pete Buttigieg)  You have said it’s morally wrong to enforce national borders, that we must decriminalize illegal border crossings.  So, is it also morally wrong to look the other way as they bring in guns, heroin, cocaine, fentanyl, banned pesticides and other chemicals, deadly diseases, and preteen sex slaves?

16.  (for Bernie Sanders)  During the first debate, you said it’s not “court packing” to “rotate” judges in and out of courts to bring in “new blood.”  My question to you is this:  Have you considered having a diagnostic brain scan?

17.  (for Kamala Harris)  To paint Joe Biden as a racist (while saying “I don’t think you’re a racist...”) and to put a personal spin on it, you completely distorted the busing you experienced as a little girl –- it was not federal court-ordered busing but a local voluntary program in California.  You yourself had a privileged upbringing –- your father was a professor.  Please explain why you think forced busing was a good thing when most people –- both black and white –- hated it.

18.  (to “Beto” O’Rourke)  Por que estas hablando espanol, Senor O’Rourke?  Su espanol esta terrible.

19.  (to Bill de Blasio)  When you yelled a phrase in Spanish to a crowd of striking airport workers in Miami, did you know you were shouting the motto of murderous revolutionary Che Guevara, who helped Fidel Castro take over Cuba and executed over 100 people by shooting them in the face?  You issued a hasty apology, but would you like to take this opportunity to personally apologize to the Cubans who fled Castro’s regime and are now living in Florida?  Also, are you really this much of an idiot?

20.  (to Pete Buttigieg)  In the first debate, you said that offering Medicare to everyone who wanted it was –- and I quote –- “a very natural glidepath to the single payer environment.”  My question to you is, did you come up with that phrase by yourself, or have you been reading too much Marianne Williamson?

That’s my 20 questions for now.  After seeing all these Democrat candidates in action, I think it likely that we will have a very natural glidepath to the Trump re-election environment.

    The 20 debate questions were excellent!

    Intelligence and reason no longer exist in the Democratic platform. Their ideology is all emotion-driven. Expecting them to ever make sense is a futile proposition. A good example is Medicare for all and all student loans paid off. If queried how to come up with all that money, their answer invariably is "Tax the rich". Realistically, doing so might fund that lunatic plan for a year, but then what? Crickets.... The Democrats are in the process of self-destructing; just enjoy the show.

    If you are able, check out a letter to the editor titled "Count me in" on page A4 of the Quad City Times. It is by Les Shields from Clinton, Iowa.

    Can you please explain to me how Jimmy Carter can still be a Democrat based on his Christian beliefs? My wife tells me that Jimmy Carter, Joe Biden and any and all supposedly Christian Democrats have made their Political beliefs their new god. I truly would like you to help explain why they remain associated to a party which holds more immoral beliefs than anything else? Please help me understand.

    Thank you Laura and Mike, we still have some sane and we'll educated people out there. Please both of you run for Senate, House or any position. We truly need very well educated, true Christian leaders and just down right common sense people to run for office. Thank God we still have true Americans speaking up against what I call the new Democratic Satin owned and run party. This is the only explanation for why they are so left and out of touch with society.

    Well, I say, YES!!! that is a list of questions I would've loved to hear during the debates. But alas, they were not. And I didn't watch that circus anyway...

    a new question
    Climate change was a huge topic. My question to them, How do control Asia and the far East's Asian Blow? We have some of the best stats worldwide on pollution abatement. Each of these countries, China, Japan, The Korea's, India, by far, exceed all the pollution the USA may generate. This floats into the atmosphere, crosses the Pacific ( encountering Rain and then dumping acid rain on the Pacific) only to drop its pollution on North America. How do we counter this?

    Good questions. But, these far left, progressive, and totally out of touch and uneducated democrats to want to be president, how are they going to get more than 20 people to vote for them? This baffles me. I would be too embarrassed and humiliated to get in front of the American people and say the things they have said.

    Questions are too elementary! Need to dumb down the Question to the level of the candidates- Start at IQ of 80 and descend until you find a competent level! Averaging the IQ's won't work since anything below 60 is there norm.

    I have several suggested answers to all of Laura Ainsworth's questions: (A) They (candidates) are all lying. (B) They are complete idiots regarding the average citizen's life. (C) They are completely devoid of reality. (D) They have to have a backup to "Hate Trump". (E) They are communists. (F) They really don't give a rat's butt about most Americans, er, deplorables. (G) They think they are running for student council. (H) Money has blinded them. (I) Power has blinded them. (J) Ego and greed has blinded them. (K) Trump has blinded them. (L) All of the above. (M) Fill in the blank____________...

    Our president Donald Trump brought bodies home from North Korea, which no other president has done. What have any of the Democratic candidates done that compares? God Bless America and our president.

    My questions would be, why do you think other countries require a passport when you travel there? Is it because they want to know who is in their country? Doesn’t Mexico require one from us?

  • Nancy Klus

    This is in regard to Laura Ainsworth's 20 questions. Oh my! Number "3" is way too logical for these candidates to figure out!
    Have any of these people listened to themselves and thoroughly thought
    out how on earth "realistically" they will pay for all of these things? We are
    the tax payers - which means we will pay for these things. Am I being too
    logical about all of this. Well, talk about "waving a magic wand" - I could go
    on about each question but I want to hear from the others out there...
    especially the reasonable and business thinking public! Help us all, Dear Lord!

    So great she hit the nail on the head with every question. It's to bad that these debates are so bias and their questions are so irrelevant and the debaters never really answer them. It's like they are all reading from the same script. It is sad that after listening to them you come away with less knowledge than you had before they started talking. They are also very good at changing what they say minute to minute depending who they are received by the people they are talking to at that precise moment.

    Mike, I really admire you and hope you will continue to seek reality in this mess we call politics. You are brilliant!! These 20 questions are proof of my last statement. Keep on trying to educate all of us. It's very necessary.
    God Bless You and America.

    Outstanding Questions. Here are a few I would like to ask all the candidates.
    1. Define the difference between socialist and communist.
    2. Raise your hand if you are a socialist.
    3. Raise your hand if you are a communist.
    4. Raise your hand if you are willing to take care of Americans First.
    5. Raise your hand if you are willing to take care of Americans Veterans First.
    6. Raise your hand if you are for the American People First.
    7. Raise your hand if you have been crossing your fingers while answering some of these questions.
    Statement to the American Votes;

    Laura, after reading your 20 Questions...…………..I LOVE YOU!!! Really, you could make a good living as a comedy writer for the 100,000 democrats running for president, because none of them would realize you were making fun of their idiocy!!! Thanks for the laughs.

    Great questions!

  • Patricia McMahon

    Love Laura's Questions. Thanx for asking about the abortion on Trans-Women. When he said that, my thought was "wait...what...? abortions? What?...They CAN'T get pregnant - right?! May be I'm wrong...Pregnant?...naw that can't be - right? He sad that on TV in front of God and everybody? Well, I could be wrong. I'll have to find a way to verify that." Thanx again Laura. Who knew? Leftist candidates not only spend money they don't have - They believe saying you're a woman can enable you to have 'the necessary lady parts' to have a baby?! My Oh My! Is there a way to get all 20 of them on permanent display where they can't hurt themselves or any one else?

    All in all a set of very bad one sided leading questions.
    I would ask:
    To Medicare for all supporters. US Health Care consumes 1 in 6 GDP dollars, about $3.25T. If you're right about saving the 15% gross profit it is annually $2.75T. Medicare now spends $265B on Part A and $365 on Part B, C, and D. It means the US needs about $2T more in revenue each year,
    Together US Income and medicare taxes result in less than $2T, $1.96T actually. Even adding in Medicare B, C, and D premiums it looks like Medicare payroll taxes must increase to 40%. In other words a payroll tax of 20% each for employee and employer. Self employed would pay the entire 40%.
