The debate will begin momentarily on CNBC. What questions are you hoping the candidates will answer tonight?

I think I prefer the roundtable format to the traditional podiums - it feels less like grandstanding when the candidates speak.

I can't believe they're all saying let Italy fail. Wow. I expected Ron Paul to say that but the rest I didn't. Jim Cramer was kind of loosing it when they said that.

Do you think there's any benefit to the US to let Italy fail as they suggest?

 "If you're too big to fail, then you're too big." I actually do agree with this. I think we should put a system in place to check banks and corporations so that they can't grow so large as to cause a detrimental effect on the economy if they fail.

If you let Italy fail, then you're basically throwing in the towel with the world economy. Italy will take down the rest of the world. It's economy is a lot larger than Greece. You will see a complete global collapse.

I think the debt has gotten so out of control that eventually we're going to have to do debt restructuring. Basically, do people want a controlled collapse or complete meltdown. I am more of the Ron Paul philosophy of getting the pain over with quickly but shocked that the other candidates would say something similar.

 Ooh, now here we go with Cain and the allegations against him. That audience booed so loudly over that!
