  1. Questions for Randy Brock in the debate:

    1) In reading your Heath Care Position Paper, I noticed there was no mention of healthcare being a Human Right. Do you think it should be treated as such legaly? Or should the market decide if it should be?

    2)a. Should corporations have the same rights as people? b. What's your position on Citizens United?

  2. Why isn't Emily Peyton in the debate? She will be on the ballot you know. What don't you understand about "public" in Vermont Public Radio?

  3. Where are the independent and third-party candidates? Our "two party system" is a monster with two heads. They are the same. Include Independent Candidate Emily Peyton in the debate!
