Larry King is really good at keeping it moving.
They all oppose the NDAA that Romney and Obama both fully support!
There is no doubt that Gary Johnson should have been allowed in the Presidential debates with Obama and Romney. The MSM has almost totally ignored him; though, he is on the ballot in all but 2 states, and has wide appeal. He certainly gets an ‘A’ for effort, and I agree with him on almost everything. Johnson is pro-choice regarding abortion.
I was hoping that Virgil Goode would have been more impressive, as I like the Constitution Party, but he didn’t even use all of his time to convince voters of his positions. Since he can’t win, why not take the time to educate (like Ron Paul would have and Gary Johnson certainly did), unless Goode isn’t even fully convinced of his own message. I wonder why he was chosen…. This is kind of pitiful. It’s like he’s just taking up space.
I voted Constitution Party in 2000, 2004 and 2008 in the Presidential election. And I voted for Ron Paul in the 2008 and 2012 primaries. I’m not yet sure what I’ll do this year. I may not vote for anyone, for the first time ever.
Without a radical change among the people, the two-party stranglehold will continue until America is done. It’s sad that they’re just going through the motions in this debate that hardly anyone will see. It really is a big deal that Gary Johnson has been intentionally kept out of the ‘official’ debates.
And I don’t fully understand why Ron Paul didn’t take up the Libertarian mantle instead of Gary Johnson. I was disappointed when I heard that Gary so eagerly took it. Dr. Paul could have possibly polled high enough to be in the mainstream debates (even though they’re requiring something like 15%, which is almost impossible when the MSM won’t give them coverage, unless it’s negative).
Undecided at this point for the first time ever,
[L.A. Times] Four alternative candidates for president of the United States debated Tuesday night in Chicago and agreed America needs a good dose of what they could provide — clear, straight talk that has not been market-pasteurized.
The third-party debate, sponsored by the nonprofit Free and Equal Elections Foundation and streamed online with host Larry King, offered up a heaping serving of candidates few voters have seen and issues President Obama and Mitt Romney have seldom raised — including drug legalization, climate change and indefinite holds on citizens suspected of terrorism.
Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, Jill Stein of the Green Party, Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party and Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party may not win huge votes Nov. 6, but they rocked a Chicago hotel ballroom and the social media landscape, which buzzed with commentary about their conversation.
“You’re all Don Quixotes in a way,” King, the former CNN host, said at the end of the 90-minute session, “but the windmills have a way of stopping and we have a way of saluting you just for getting into the fray.” (read more)
