Patch Is Collecting Questions for Obama and Romney During the Next Presidential Debate

If you have a question for the candidates, submit it in the comments section below and it could be asked during the televised Oct. 16 Town Hall Presidential Debate.

If last Wednesday’s presidential debate left you with more questions than answers, here’s your chance for the presidential candidates to address the issues that most matter to you.

The next presidential debate will be a town hall meeting format at Hofstra University in Long Island, where voters will ask President Obama and Mitt Romney about domestic and foreign policy.

Patch is asking you, our readers, to participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch's parent company Aol, along with Google and Yahoo, to take questions from web users across the country.

Don’t wait until Nov. 6 to have a say in this year’s election. Share your thoughts in the comments!

I would like to know from both candidates...Why are they not saying specifically what they both intend to do about the war?...And why is the US still trying to make nice with these extremists?...And why since we have enough oil, and other forms of energy are gas and oil prices still so high?...Why can't we just tell them to go pack sand?...How are we going to get the global markets showing improvement so that the US and other countries like us don't continue to fail like Greece? I have many more, but I'll just start here.

Why should we invest in any other country other than ourselves right now, it seems to me that the role of the politicians should be investing in this country. Why should we keep dumping money into other countries when we cannot even help ourselves right now.

I agree with you Dr. Linder, as a health care professional also, the cost of medical treatment are staggering and bankrupt many families, who cannot afford insurance. This is a true injustice.

I believe he just changes with the wind, and tells people what they want to hear. If you want truth from Romney that would be like peeing in the wind.

Robyn, Because we don't have enough oil. The amount of oil we have is less than 1% of the world's oil, and wouldn't be enough to truly keep up sustained for any real length of time. Gasoline is higher than it used to be, but our legislation is still keeping the price depressed. We are not paying the $8-$11 dollars a gallon other countries are paying.
