Top 10 Questions Reporters Will Never Ask Politicians
1. By what percentage will the crime rate fall if Congress
adopts your gun control proposals, and when will that decline
2. If you don't know the answer to #1, why are you proposing
more gun control legislation?
3. The mayors of Chicago, Detroit, New York, and other big
cities are provided with armed body guards. Why should elected
officials have the benefit of armed protection while ordinary
citizens should not?
4. The federal government has adopted a policy not to deport
illegal aliens if they haven't committed a felony or pose a
threat to national security. If illegal aliens don't have to
obey the law, why should anyone else?
5. The Obama administration gives work permits to illegal
aliens who are granted "prosecutorial discretion" and allowed
to stay in the U.S. That means they qualify for affirmative
action hiring if they possess an Hispanic surname. Is it fair
to unemployed native-born American workers to give illegal
aliens this hiring preference? Will you do anything to oppose
6. The 2nd Amendment says the right to keep and bear arms
"shall not be infringed." What does the word "infringed" in
that context mean to you?
7. Under the 6th Amendment, anyone accused of crime has the
right to representation by an attorney. The Supreme Court has
ruled that if an accused person is too poor to afford an
attorney, his 6th Amendment right is undermined and is
therefore entitled to have an attorney paid for by taxpayers.
So how come taxpayers aren't required to buy guns for poor
people under the 2nd Amendment?
8. The Census Bureau says that by 2040 or 2050, current
immigration policy adopted by Congress will transform the U.S.
into a majority non-white country. Do you think American voters
should be asked whether they want that to happen? Why or why
9. If the federal government shouldn't track down and deport
illegal aliens, how many illegal aliens should America continue
to accept each year? Do you think there should be any limit on
the number of illegal aliens who should be allowed to break the
law? If so, what is that limit and why?
10. Please explain how effective the Federal Gun
Control Act of 1968 has been in reducing crime.
