To attach the Constitution to that guy in any way is a fraud.... he doesn't understand the Constitution, nor do his views represent it. His claim about the "small fraction of spending attributed to the drug war" was just a lie... he clearly doesn't understand the cost of entire system, and housing these people in prison, doing raids, going through the "justice"system, etc.
Stein and Anderson are good on many issues, but then just detract so far with "green" new deal and FREE education... how can one honestly think we have a debt problem and then advocate free eduction? Its almost as if you are ignoring reality and don't understand how other nations pay for this sort of thing. THEY ARE ALL BROKE...
Gary Johnson showed a lot of independence and strength and has come along way. He was clearly the best received candidate and spoke common sense. He has refined his answers and I have to say I agree with him on almost all of his stances... looking into the fair tax, I personally still wouldn't like ANY federal tax, but abolishing the IRS, income tax, corporate tax, etc. are ALL steps in the right direction and it is very true that we already pay this 23% in hidden costs already, so there is no doubt that it is much better than what we currently have.
If Ron Paul decided to run third party, he could have easily debated Romney and Obama and gotten well above 15%, I wish he did that just to be more of a "pain in the ass" to the establishment than he already was.
All in all, the Free and Equal debate was mostly a success, slightly unorganized, but with Larry King... certainly an important representation that PEOPLE WANT CHOICES in all aspects of life. Bravo Free and Equal
Their motto is "Dont Tread On Me"...
