This is a really interesting contrast in both style and content. (I didn’t watch the Republican debate, so this is the first I’ve seen of it.) HT2 LRC
I think it’s great. Paul took on the drug war from an ideological stand point while Johnson takes a more practical aproach. This may combat the myth that Libertarians are “Hippy utopians who can’t get their heads out of the clouds”. Johnsons’ presence at the debate was also a plus because it gave fox someone they wanted to snub (dont as me why) more than paul.
“We don’t have a first amendment so that we can talk about the weather.”
Paul strikes me as more deontological and Johnson as more utilitarian… maybe the wrong choice of words, but I think y’all get what I’m saying.
I think it’s important to realize that both candidates believe 100% of what the other person was saying. This one-two punch is going to be a huge boost for the movement!
