Last night I did not tune in to the debates, simply because it would have been a waste of time, and I/we were much better served preparing and enjoying a nice healthy and fresh home cooked meal with my wonderful fiancé. From what I gather, based on sound clips and quotes, Romney won though! Right? Can someone please explain how? Did he propose a bold new plan on how he is going to cut the $16,000,000,000,000+ national deficit? No? Then he surely must have proposed an exit strategy from the wars and finding a diplomatic solution with Iran!! YAY! I’ll vote for that! Wait… no, none of that… hmmm… then it must have been his INGENIOUS savvy business man side that laid out a step-by-step plan to create those 12 million jobs right?! (yes I clicked on the link to learn more) No?… Hmmmm…. well then what was it!?
The debates last night where nothing more than scripted entertainment/distraction. Two politicians, pretending to disagree with each other, to debate the “issues,” to attack the problems this nation is facing… But what we got was the exact opposite. More skirting the issues, more pocking at the federal budget, and more proof that these two politicians represent two very similar big government ideals. Oh WAIT! There is a difference! Romney wants to kill Big Bird. Ding ding ding! We have a winner!! Too bad for ol’ Mittens, public broadcasting represents… oh… about .00002% of the national deficit.
Here is a MUCH better version of those same debates… maybe just a little more “diverse.” We would all be much better served including a unique and fresh set of ideas into the national debate.
If you want to listen to a debate that will discuss the real critical issues, with a few candidates that bring fresh ideas to the table… then tune in to the Free and Equal Presidential Debates on October 23rd. This debate will feature FOUR candidates for president from FOUR different parties.
The two aforementioned candidates were invited but declined to attend. Surprise!
Here is a little tid-bit from one of the pesidential candidates that WILL be in attendance at this Free and Equal Presidential Debate:
We didn’t see a debate tonight. We saw two slightly differing versions of defending the Republican and Democrat status quo that has given us war after war after war, a $16 trillion debt, and a government that is the answer to everything. Nowhere was there a real plan for reducing government, balancing the budget any time in the foreseeable future, or a path that will actually put Americans back to work. We heard two politicians arguing over which of their plans for government-run health care is less bad. We heard fantasies about balancing the budget while not reducing Medicare costs. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are nibbling around the edges of the nation’s problems. We don’t have time to nibble — we need to devour them. Americans deserve real debates and a voice who will actually tell the truth about what it will take to put this great nation back on track.
