  1. If Russia were to start having problems with U.S. allies, such as attacking or invading the country[s], what would be your first thought towards solving the problem? Would you immediately think of a military strategy to end the problem or would you approach it with a peaceful and diplomatic ideal so the U.S. does not send any more troops to foreign countries?

  2. This question is for Jaime Perez: What are the disadvantages of pulling troops out of other countries, like Afghanistan? How will this effect the economy?

  3. Given the current administration was very critical about the civilian casualties in Gaza, how do you think the U.S. will be perceived if U.S. air strikes against ISIS kill innocent civilians?

  4. Given that the international coalition led by the U.S. has not been successful in pushing ISIS back by using air power alone, should the U.S. be willing to commit ground troops against ISIS?

  5. As the American government knew about the existence of Isis two years ago, what could we have done better to prevent the massacre that is occurring now?

  6. What should be the U.S. Policy towards the parents of underage children when the parents are illegal residents but their children are U.S citizens?

  7. With the cost of attending University increasing, what are your plans for making Public Education at the University level more affordable?

  8. With the amount of kids being diagnosed with Juvenile type 1 diabetes, and the low amount of funding being implemented to find a cure, what are your plans to help increase funding to hopefully find a cure in the near future?

  9. With recent immigration policy changes that allow immigrant children to remain in the country, how do you prevent more immigrants from taking advantage of this policy?

  10. In August you cast a vote against additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system while the Iron Dome was protecting the Israeli public from rockets Hamas was launching into Israeli cities. Why were you one of only eight representatives to vote against this funding, and do you regret your vote in retrospect?

  11. With the rising threats from Isis on the United States, how should border security be addressed? Will anything change because of this? How should people go about being more informed on this type of situation?

  12. For congressman O’Rourke: The most recent Israeli Palestinian conflict resulted in approximately 2200 deaths, the majority of which were Palestinian civilians. In early august you voted against a piece of legislation that would supply an additional $225 million dollars to Israel to further strengthen their Iron Dome system. The backlash from the El Paso Jewish community was palpable. Some of your campaign donors went as far as saying that you “chose to side with the rocket launchers and terror tunnel builders” Knowing what you know now, would you have voted the same way? Why or why not?

  13. I have friennds and family 13 years old, who have never known an America not at war. These children do not know what life in the USA was like before the Patriot Act and the TSA. In another sense most all Americans don’t know a world where America was not “at war” with North Korea, where no official treaty was ever written and peace never official came. That was about 60 years ago. How do we get ourselves out of constant warfare. What would you propose to do as congressman to combat what Dwight Eisenhower called the Military Industrial Complex..
