All sides not represented in debate
March 2, 2007
Political debate is a staple in college life. Now is the perfect time for us to fully explore our viewpoints along with our career paths.
I was encouraged to see a formal debate held on campus for this reason.
Unfortunately, all viewpoints were not represented. I have been involved with the libertarian movement that has been steadily gaining momentum over the past few years. The libertarian point of view would have added balance to the left-leaning bias in this debate.
Many students would be surprised at how libertarian they actually are regarding the war on drugs, civil rights, the economy and countless other issues. Hopefully next time the debate will be more inclusive.
