I agree, both parties were amazing and they shouldn't have one speech in which they don't accuse the two big parties of being afraid to debate them.

Ever since I knew what the two big parties were, I felt I had to sell out to be a part of either one.

But when I found out about the Libertarian party, my eyes lit up as I realized there really was a party for me. Every single idea I had about government had already been realized in the Libertarian platform.

I couldn't think of a better candidate out there than Badnarik, he truly is the ally of the American people.

I loved Badnarik's closing statement... It moved me...

so Rant, are you still a liberal?

I enjoyed Cobb's remarks especially on the environment, although I don't like his foreign policy agenda, nor his health plan... I believe in personal responsibility, less government, and defense not offense, and not policing the world..
Not alll for one, and one for all... Thats socialism/communism to me... But it's nice to see that liberals aren't the only ones like that...

I'm glad to see the green make it easy for the LP when it comes to true freedoms, less governemnt, a restoration of the constitution, and a true adherence to it. I'm glad to see he believes in wiping his ass with government agencies, less military spending, less corporate greasing the governments pockets...
If we do this, our medical bills will be less expensive the fda can go to hell and so the insane health insurance costs...


So did anybody feel anything or change their opinions?


Are there Any newcomers to the green party or LP?

I watched this from start to finish, it was definately worth the time. I actually have a little respect for the Greens now, too -haha.

Well, the best part of the whole debate I would say was when Michael said:

Dude, I just heard Badnarik say it. Invading Afghanistan and Iraq were illegal unjustified actions. I didn't hear that about LP from Dems or Reps, I just heard it from him and was actually shocked to hear him say it.

I know its part of our platform that we do not interfer in ANY countrys internal affairs

I wasnt disagreeing with you said I was just saying you would have known it a long time ago if you looked at our platform a little closer

He and Green were in dead agreement on it too.




That was awesome... I loved it when Cobb would talk about the corporate government, he was such a smart ass about that...

The invited candidates are:

* President George W. Bush (Republican),
* Senator John F. Kerry (Democrat),
* Mr. Michael Badnarik (Libertarian),
* Mr. David Cobb (Green),
* Mr. Michael Peroutka (Constitution),
* Mr. Ralph Nader (Independent).

I guess they all decided to skip out on us....

I hope that the LP party replaces the republican majority and
I hope that the Green party replaces the deomocratic majority..

Two very professional candidates that actually give a # about this country and about us people... I am truly inspired...

I'm very much still liberal and agree with Green on economic ideologies, but I'm just not that liberal. Just regular ol' southern dem here. Pro-business, but anti-corruption, and give the little guy a chance.

I still support overthrowing the Taliban too in Afghanistan (like most dems) so I'm more traditionally "conservative" than either guy on that stage in some areas. Go figure.

I might just vote libertarian instead of for Kerry. I understand the lesser of two evils eqauling evil but I still have to wrestle with decision. Maybe I'll vote Badnarik and move to Canada.

I'm going to bring some of these stances over to the campaign section so that you fellow lefties and repugnants lol j/k can debate this...

I'm so happy to see him live debating on issues that should matter, not pretend to care, not pretend to listen to the people, like badnarik says, we the people are the government... Help him restore a constitutional republic...
