Patch is asking you, our readers, to participate by submitting questions for the candidates.

All you have to do is post your question in the comments section below and we’ll send it to the Commission on Presidential Debates. The Commission is partnering with Patch's parent company Aol, along with Google and Yahoo, to take questions from web users across the country.

What is your position on Concealed Carry Reciprocity for the Nation.

Mr. Romney, you are hawkish on sending the military to intervene in the middle east and anywhere else in the world. You were a great supporter of the Vietnam conflict. Yet, neither you nor your five adult sons served in the military. Why are you so eager to send other people's sons and daughters into harms way when you won't send your own?

For Governor Romney: would your proposal to block grant Medicaid effectively end the guarantee of long-term care for indigent seniors in need of 24-7 care and supervision? If so, would your plan include any contingencies to ensure that such seniors continue to receive the care that they need under the new framework? Or would adult children find themselves in the position of having to drop out of the workforce - potentially for years - to provide such care themselves...and, thus, without any means of earning an income to support themselves or parent(s) under their care?

A divided United States Supreme Court has twice ruled by way of razor thin 5 to 4 votes that the Second Amendment “guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” However the 4 dissenting justices in District of Columbia v. Heller stated that “self-defense . . . is not the [Second] Amendment’s concern.” If you are elected and have the occasion to nominate a Supreme Court justice, will you choose a nominee who believes that the Second Amendment is concerned with the individual right of self-defense, or one who believes that self-defense is not the Second Amendment’s concern?
