Obama and Romney Unanswered Questions

As Barack Obama and Mitt Romney squared off in the second presidential debate, New America Media editors posed 10 questions that have largely gone unasked -- and unanswered – in their campaigns.

Obama and Romney Care For Women

Republican nominee Mitt Romney and his running mate Paul Ryan focused on how the struggling economy is impacting female voters. "This president has failed America's women," Romney said at an outdoor rally at Tidewater Community College in eastern Virginia that drew over 3,000 people. "They've suffered in terms of getting jobs, they've suffered in terms of falling into poverty."

Sanders for Sheriff Will Reduce Jail Population

AUGUSTA, GA - Responding to criticism that he just wants people in jail, attorney Freddie Sanders clarified his position during a forum stating that those people who should be out of prison will be. Sanders, a republican, is facing Richard Roundtree, a democrat, in the November 6 elections for Richmond County Sheriff Office.

Roundtree approach will be more proactive preventing crimes while Sanders was vocal letting voters to know that he will luck up everybody having trouble with the law and order. At a recent forum he said that he will let go those offenders with chance to improve in their lives. There will be no third chance though, he pointed out.

The biggest doubt is if either Roundtree or Sanders could do much to keep independence from the federal government influence and the privatization of the prison system. Also in Georgia the General Assembly has given unelected citizens panels power over immigration and utilizing local law enforcement as immigration agents.

Christ Like Leaders of the Future

Will Roundtree Deliver COPS in Richmond?

AUGUSTA, GA - On November 6 the Richmond County Sheriff Office will have a new leader. Richard Roundtree is running for that position and promising to put back on the neighborhoods the community oriented policing program. His opponent Freddie Sanders thinks that the Sheriff job is to put people in jail and that the courts have to decide what to do with them. It can't be a race more black and white than that.

Presidential Debate High Tech, Media Lynching

Let me state my premise clearly: Aside from what the mob of media commentators and pundits,  opposition spinners, comedians ,talk show hosts and sympathetic apologists spew,  there is no standard-based evidence that President Barak Obama blew or lost the first presidential debate with challenger Mitt Romney, any more than there is evidence that the thousands of black men lynched in the not too distant past suffered that fate because  they  accosted white women or did something wrong.
