Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

The Third party debate

This is a great effort by ‘Free and Equal Elections Foundation’ in arranging this, along with Larry King as a moderator. Larry seemed a bit pedantic about time, but with four nominees and 90 minutes this was probably necessary.
 Gary Johnson was a clear winner with a lot of good lines, probably the best of which was, “Wasting your vote is voting for someone you don’t believe in.”

For second place it is probably, though reluctantly Virgil Goode, with his position on the drug war being the main downside.

Jill Stein and Rocky Anderson had some good points but lost it with the old leftist cliché about how the nation cannot afford not to guarantee free higher education for all. Its what is affordable that counts not what you can’t afford not to have. If the nation can’t pay for it without crippling the economy, it’s out of the question. Anderson doubled down with his claim that the US needs prosperity not austerity. Government spending is not the pathway to prosperity.
