Debate Rounds (3)
1st round acceptence , 2nd round opening statements, 3rd round rebuttals and closing statement.
Former govenor of New Mexico and 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson should be the next president because America is tired of the government interfering with people's lives, spying on their own people, starting uneccesary wars, and America is ready for some real change. His veiws are consistent with liberty and fredom. After two bad authoritarian presidents from both parties it is time for a president that will get the government out of people's lives and get rid of policies that defy common snese.
A summary of Gary John's politcal veiws are as followed
Supports the lagalization of Marijuana
Supports Gay Marriage and Civil Unions
Supports cutting taxes and regulations
Against corporate welfare
Supports gun rights
Against the patriot Act and the NSA
Supports cutting Military spending
Supports Free Trade
Against foreign aid
He still supports the income tax.
Gary Johnson does not support the income tax. He is not only in favor of abolishing the Income Tax but with the whole IRS and rplacing it with his Fair Tax System.
When it comes to gey marriage he actually agrees with you. In a speech Gary Johnson gave in 2011 he stated “As a believer in individual freedom and keeping government out of personal lives, I simply cannot find a legitimate justification for federal laws, such as the Defense of Marriage Act, which ‘define’ marriage. That definition should be left to religions and individuals – not government. Government’s role when it comes to marriage is one of granting benefits and rights to couples who choose to enter into a marriage ‘contract’. As I have examined this issue, consulted with folks on all sides, and viewed it through the lens of individual freedom and equal rights, it has become clear to me that denying those rights and benefits to gay couples is discrimination, plain and simple.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro laid out his case why Gary Johnson's views were important in terms of civil liberties, as his view clearly defends this idealogy. Con did not addressed Pro's point whatsoever. Con did however addressed gay marriage but he failed to state how moving government out of marriage is a good thing. As such, I am to rely on this weak subjective hunch. Pro at least somewhat elaborated the importance of liberties , while Con was meddling in his own isle of opinions. Without a proper evaluation, Con's case holds no merit whatsoever. Pro was the only one providing sources, as such he gets the point.
