    Gary Johnson: "I defy anyone who watched the debate to identify a plan from either the Republican or Democrat that will achieve a balanced budget. Behind the fuzzy math and the quibbling, there was nothing more than a commitment to continue the status quo — with at most a few minor adjustments. We don’t need adjustments. We need a fundamental reduction in the role and cost of government, and both Romney and Obama are fundamentally big-government guys.

    We watched a blame game over immigration, while the problem festers with no solution in sight. We heard quibbling over whose government plan would have saved GM better, but nothing about why the government should be bailing out any company at all. And we heard cheap shots about government-run health care from two candidates who both support it. Where is the reasonable argument that government shouldn’t be running health care in the first place?

    On the attacks in Libya, the debate we must have is not over what we call it or when; we need a debate over why we were there at all.

    There are clear choices in this election, but they weren’t on the stage tonight."

    Clearly not you. You hate freedom and justice, but defend the two-party dictatorship.

    If you wanna play the game of who cares what who says, who cares what you say? Gary Johnson is a former governor who vetoed more bills than all the other governors combined. He has a sound platform for liberty and prosperity. He has the large momentum of Ron Paul supporters behind him and he climbed Mt. Everest. So more people care what he says, no one cares what you say.

    It sounds to me like the majority of faux libertarians don't care what he thinks. Those sheep are being told to vote for Romney.

    It is utterly pitiful. Nobody stands for Liberty anymore. Even the supposed Libertarians are settling for fascism when they don't realize that voting for Romney is merely rearranging furniture on the Titanic.

    Intelligent people. People that actually want an answer followed by specifics on policies they would like to have. People that don't want perpetual wars and corporate subsidies... So most of the Democrats and Republicans don't care... But a quickly growing number of people are caring.

    The best question/answer last night at the Presidential debate was when the moderator asked “what do you feel is the most misrepresented thing about you during the campaign through the opponents and media” Both answers were exactly the same, Obama says Mitt will destroy the country and Mitt said Obama will destroy the country… How these ignorant fucks are incapable of answering simple question after simple question and the audience eats it up is beyond comprehension. Both candidates were right that our country suffers from a lack of good education, they proved that last night.

    Isn't she deep? Now perhaps you see what I mean on the other thread about her. She calls people trolls and she's the actual hit and run troll.:eusa_whistle:

    I actually wished that Ron Paul had done better. Now it's the lesser of two evils. His time may actually be in 2016 after Romney screws things up...if he does.

    The problem is that if you don't vote for Romney you actually vote for Obama. Voting third party is noble but at this point it time it won't make a difference and only helps to reelect more of the same.

    That's contradictory to Johnson who wants change.

    What I saw on stage again last night was two salesmen giving it their best sale pitch.

    Shit give each one a sweater and a pipe and each could be Bob. They'll always be Bob. They've always been Bob.........
