Two men, two parties, neither featuring an honest regard for individual liberty and both showcasing their ignorance concerning the proper role of the federal government. Debating how much to trim off the edges with a paring knife is a waste of time when a hacksaw is what is needed.
Also, how, when 90 minutes are dedicated to domestic policy, does the issue of civil liberties not come up once? We have a Bill of Rights for a reason--to safeguard against the abuses by and intrusion from the federal government.
This charade was nothing more than a distraction from issues of substance. The two-party monopoly proves itself again to be antithetical to the integrity of the election process. Evidenced by: 1) near agreement on most issues by the two; 2) no presence of a third party on the debate stage.
