Political Debate

The College Libertarians, Greens, Democrats, and Republicans held their second inter-party debate this afternoon. The topic was “Resolved: National security interests outweigh civil rights infringements due to the domestic war on terror.” In reality, nothing was resolved. Attendees were treated to stolid defenses of the status quo by the Democratic and Republican representatives, and heard some rather spirited but fuzzy rhetoric from the Green and Libertarian folks. The audience was attentive, asking a wide range of questions. In the future, more research should be down by all parties involved, and all debaters should not repeat their same tired platform over and over again.
