The ‘Debate(s)’, NOW with more Gun Control!

I didn’t watch the first debate.  Nor the second.  Nor the third.  I’ve three reasons for not doing so, to wit:

1.  They are NOT debates, but rather stump speeches with responses.  They don’t answer questions, just push their own agendas!  (The President – Assault Weapons Ban, again!)  (And Governor Romney – The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting!)

2.  Not all viable candidates were asked to participate, and

3.  The participants are not under oath when answering.

Well, there IS another reason:

4.  Why do I care what Tweedledee and Tweedledum have to say!  Both are avowed statists with big government agendas.  Not exactly my political stance.

“Government is not a solution to our problem, government is the problem.” – Ronald Reagan

My understanding, via the wisdom of the Internet, is the Republican took the first one, handily.  The Democrat
interrupted and laughed a lot during the second.  And CNN voted for the Republican both times.  CNN!  CNN said the President won last night.

Re:  Gun Control (a rant) –
Mr. President, the Clinton Assault Weapon Ban did nothing to stop crime.  Crime went down significantly when it finally sunset 10 years later.  And virtually all the current statistics (except those from the totalitatian-loving, anti-rightist folks) show as there is more gun ownership today, and crime is down!  I know you know this.  Because gun control isn’t about stopping crime, it’s about controlling law-abiding citizens!
News Flash:  Criminals don’t obey the law!  (end rant)

Ultimately, the only ‘debate’ that matters in the one in the voter’s head on Election Day.  All else is window dressing.

  1. Yep, you’re right; and this time it again boils down to the lesser of two evils…

  2. It is sad, but Libertarian? Not this go around.
    If the LIbertarian party ever got it’s shit together and had a viable candidate maybe….but any vote other than the electable Republican is a no sale in this election. Bwhore has GOT to go.
    Voting for a party that has never had ONE electoral college vote isn’t going to do squat except water down votes that should go against the Dems.
    Sad but true.

  3. (In the above comment I hit something that posted it before I was done.)
    We need to get some Libertarians, or those that share their views on freedom, into our local level political posts and into Congress. Our choices for Senate are Flake and Carmona?
    This 2 party BS we are stuck with stinks. WE NEED A THIRD!!

    • I agree the LP needs to keep working at the local and State levels.
      We DO have a third-restricted by the other two.
      AND,
      Virginia Elector Roger MacBride, pledged for Republicans Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew, cast his electoral votes for Libertarian candidates John Hospers and Theodora Nathan. MacBride’s vote for Nathan was the first electoral vote cast for a woman in U.S. history. MacBride became the Libertarian candidate for President in the 1976 election.
