    "A Substantive Debate"

    This debate is fascinating, much more so than the Republican/Democrat debate. There are four ?third party? candidates here, all from very diverse backgrounds.

    The Constitution Party?I?m not too familiar with this party, but they really like the Constitution and its very limited powers and seem to want to stick to a strict interpretation of the Constitution, which means a very limited government.

    The Green Party?This party wants to promote sound social and ecological change through governmental policy. They want the minimum wage to be raised to a living wage among other things.

    The Libertarian Party?Not confused with ?liberals,? this party emphasizes limited federal government, with more emphasis on state power and ?laissez-faire?-style free market capitalism in most affairs.

    The Socialist Party?Not THOSE Socialists, but other socialists who are patriotic, peaceful, and want a strong, centralized government with lots of public ownership.

    As you can see, there is a lot of contrast here, and the debate, while short, has a good deal of substance to it. The most notable downside to it is the moderator, who is so unprofessional that the segment sounds more like an intellectual dorm meeting rather than a national presidential debate. He comes off as a moron with his side comments and jokes. I?m not even exaggerating here. A MORON.

    The candidates, however, are entertaining and informative. Republicans and Democrats are great, and they have the power, but they don?t always make you think. Expand your mind by getting to know some the other parties out there. Although it is unlikely any of these parties will win a national election anytime soon, their debate influences public policies which are often usurped by the Red/Blue parties.

    "This debate is still relevant"

    We see the world through two parties, this relatively civil debate goes through many issues and perspectives you just don't hear.

    "Other viewpoints"

    This is an interesting listen. If you want more info on political parties other than just Republican/Democrat this will interest you.

    It can be daunting, however, when a particular candidate speaks without an introduction and you have to figure out who he is.

    Overall, the price is great (free) for a nice listen. I promise, you will learn something from this.
