The boys.
President Obama and Mitt Romney squared off in the final presidential debate last night, a foreign-policy debate in Boca Raton Florida.

An extremely colorful recap can be found with our sister paper, New Times Broward-Palm Beach, which makes the debate seem a hell of a lot more exciting than it looked on television.

If the undecided voters came away with anything from last night's debate, it's probably that our Commander in Chief claims that the military is not using nearly as many bayonets and horses as they did a century ago, and Milton Bradley is not in charge of the country's Navy:

So, if you watched the debate -- or even if you didn't; we're not seeking verification -- who do you think won?

Would've like to hear Rocky Anderson and Gary Johnson, both would have covered the crisis the two parties have swept under the rug --  America's longest war, the mass incarceration of America's people threatening our people and nation's future.

"i went across 25 states looking for a wide range of viewpoints from every level of the criminal justice system. oddly, what i found was a huge number of people inside the system (virtually everyone i talked to) have deep reservations about what they do and the larger implications of the system they are participating in. so it was incredibly inspiring to see a judge, from his chambers, criticize the drug war whose laws have tied his hands and stripped him of the discretion we entrust him with. it was inspiring to see prison officials (jailers and wardens) wearing their uniforms and from the prisons they run, criticize the draconian laws (and the politicians and corporations who profit from them) that they have to enforce. and yes, it was also inspiring in several states across the country to hear law enforcement officers, from the front seats of their patrol cars, lament the laws that they enforce, which arrest the same people week after week, largely nonviolent, who aren’t a threat to society, but whose lives they see only become worse with each arrest, a treadmill to nowhere. all of that sadness on the part of those working in the system is actually a very inspiring glimmer of hope for change. becuase the human majesty of such people to speak out in that way in a way that could imperil their very livelihood sets such a standard of behavior that the rest of us — for whom it would be so much easier to voice protest — must be inspired by."

Who’s Afraid of an Open Debate? The Truth About the Commission on Presidential Debates 


The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private corporation headed by the former chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties. The CPD is a duopoly which allows the major party candidates to draft secret agreements about debate arrangements including moderators, debate format and even participants. The result is a travesty riddled with sterile, non-contentious arguments which consistently exclude alternative voices that Americans want to hear.

This documentary also reveals the big corporations who “sponsor” the CPD and how third party candidates are purposely excluded. One of these sponsors, Annheiser Busch, is partly owned by Senator John McCain’s wife. Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura’s election as an independent candidate proves that opening up debates can lead to real change – something the entrenched Republican and Democratic Parties don’t want to see.

 @sarum  @truthseekeraz  Citizens United -- the corporations "control" the politicians in every way.  They won't let an independent voice be heard since they do not want the truth and the real issues to be known. 


@truthseekeraz Agreed. Who can sort fact from spin? Some of these campaign ads make unproveable or unproven allegations and should therefore be illegal. We don't know who pays for them and the 2 main candidates themselves cannot even agree on the facts prior to their "debates." They aren't supposed to be fighting about whose version of reality is true - they are applying for a job based on who has the best ideas to fix the mess. The R-lister appears especially good at creating his own reality. Supposedly he has profited immensely from Medicare fraud, basically blackmailed the FDIC and much much more. Course the articles I have links for could all be lies too - like about Bain purchasing & placing voting machines in key states . . . . This is just Hollywood to keep the slaves complacent. . . . that's you and me.
