I am going to be doing a questionnaire for a video I'm putting together.
I will be at a n event where the president will be giving a speech.
Anyone have suggestions on questions I should ask people?
I want to test people's knowledge on who they support in the presidential election... and why they support that candidate... if they really even know why.
I've wanted to do this with Romney supporters as well but he's blown off both visits he planned to make in my city. I'm hoping some will be at the event that I can question. So Romney question ideas too please.
UPDATE: didn't make the video. Just ended up driving there to protest with a friend.
We got there 30 minutes early but the president got there 35 minutes early and the event stopped letting people in. It was blockaded with police, buses, semi trailers, etc. Police would tell you to move if you tried to see the prez from the only viewable area outside the perimeter.
I asked the cops why we weren't allowed in... or at least the hundreds of his supporters that wanted in.... and was told they were just following the law. I told them just because it's a law doesn't mean it's not bullshit. They threatened to arrest me for saying bullshit in public. Apparently in Iowa curse words are illegal in public. So we just walked around and listened to Obama from behind buildings. I swear if Obama didn't have such a shitty republican to bash on he'd have nothing to talk about. One thing I agree with Obama on... Romney blows. LOL
Protest signs read: " Nobel Peace Prize? Why are we still in Afghanistan? Why did we bomb 5 countries in the last 12 months? Why are mercenaries like Black Water and I.D.S. still being used? "
"Romney and Obama paid for by Goldman Sachs." and in smaller font I listed 5 other huge banks that have committed fraud/get billion dollar subsidies/got bailout money/etc.... of which have all given money to both candidates.
