CNN Interview with Fmr. Governor Gary Locke
1. Recently, a Gallup poll indicated that only 45% of Americans approve of President Obama's job performance, while 49% disapprove. As President, how would a Locke Administration be different than our current one?
2. Recently, a number of terrorist organizations including the ISIL, al Qaeda, Boko Haram, and the Taliban have been active across the Middle East, killing thousands of innocent civilians and terrorizing the region. Do you prefer to identify these terrorist organizations as 'Islamic', or do you wish not to use that term?
3. As President, what actions will you take to fight these groups? Do you believe that putting the lives of American citizens in danger is necessary to stop this threat?
4. If you could have any one new law of your choice come into effect today, what would it be?
5. What is your view on the Iran Deal currently being negotiated by the Obama Administration, and if elected, what would you do to support or oppose it?
6. What do you think the biggest issue currently facing our nation is and as President, what will you do to fix it?
7. Do you support reintroducing Glass-Steagall? Why or why not?
8. Do you support statehood for Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C.? Why or why not?
9. What is your view on net neutrality? If elected, what will you do in regard to it?
10. Which of your fellow Democratic primary opponents do you feel agrees with you on the most issues? The least?
NOTE: This is an interview that jojoju1998 asked me to create for his candidate, Gary Locke. If you would like me to do something similar for your candidate, feel free to ask!
1. I believe that the Frustration is directed at Washington itself. Look, I have been part of Washington. It can work together. But when we have Politicians getting checks from Special Interest Groups, it screws up the process. When I am President, I will get Washington working again, by removing the temptation of Special Interest Groups.
2. There is a difference between these Terrorists, and Hard Working, Tax Paying, and Patriotic Muslim Americans. So by calling these Terorrists ' Islamic ', you are painting with a very broad brush.
3. My Plan which is online will destroy ISIS in 10 years, by having targeted Air Strikes, Removing ISIS's funding, and use small number of troops....... it is a good plan.
4. For a new law..... I think that Replacing The No Child Left Behind Act with a Alternative is a good idea. My Alternative will allow states to take control of our children's education. My Plan has been released online.
5. The Iran Deal is a good deal. The Problem has to do with implementation. And As President, I will implement the deal...... clearly. And If Iran cheats, then Military Action is possible.
6. The Biggest Issue facing our country, is how do we reduce Income Inequality.... So I will work together with Congress to reform Our Tax Code so that it is more fair to our taxpayers. That will reduce Inequality alot.
7. We now live in a 21st Century Economy. It is not 1933 anymore. I do support regulations on big banks..... but it has to fit this new economy we live in.
8. It is the people's choice, I can not say wheter or not they should join the Union, it is their choice.
9. The Internet must be free and fair..... So Yes I support Net Neutrality.
10. All of my colleagues are true Progressives. But I have the knowledge to put progressive ideas into Action....
