After two years of campaigning at taxpayer expense, the American people should be demanding answers to the following questions before the election, given the importance of knowing who you are voting for Nov. 4.

First, why has Barack Obama not released a copy of his birth certificate? What is he hiding? What is on the certificate that no one gets to see?

Second, if the "one" is so very smart, why has he not released his high school and college transcripts? Are they that poor, or is there more to the story? Why is the media not demanding answers to these questions to allow the voters to make an informed choice?

Third, Obama has no history of voting for any tax cuts, so how is he going to give the middle class a tax cut in the future? One-third of Americans pay no taxes, so why should they benefit from government services more than those who pay taxes? Another socialist view, maybe.

Fourth, why is Obama not held accountable for sitting in a church for 20 years under the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose hateful, racists sermons were being sold in the lobby of the church? Does anyone believe he never heard or condoned that kind of sermon until he was running for president?

Fifth, does Obama blame Americans today for slavery, and what are his views on slavery reparations?

Sixth, if he believed he should run for president, why didn't he resign his Senate seat so that America was not paying for someone to campaign for two years and not do his Senate job 100 percent?

Finally, the only candidate and party that keeps bringing up race is Obama and the Democrats, so does he feel that America is still a racist country?

The electorate deserves to know the answer to these and many other questions before the vote takes place. The media seems to have given him a free ride with no accountability in both the primaries against Hillary Clinton and also in the general election, where he runs as a middle-of-the-road Democrat whose past had him rated as the most liberal senator in the U.S. Senate.
