Pointless Debate

Didn't watch it.  Didn't feel the need to. (And most likely will not be watching the next two presidential ones and one vice presidential one.) If you did watch, was it truly a debate or just two people talking over each other?  We any relevant issues actually discussed or debated?  (I'll leave it up to you to define what relevant is.)  Did any of it actually make you change your mind on a candidate?  (I'm completely serious here.  I am actually willing to listen to rational thoughts from all sides of the fence.)

I might have watched if ALL the candidates participated. (There are more than 2; there's also Jill Stein of the Green Party and Gary Johnson who is Libertarian.  You might say that these two don't have a shot in hell of winning, but the way things are going in this country and the world, I have to wonder if we are not already in hell.)  I might have watched if instead of it being a "show" it was truly a forum where questions were asked and answered in a clear, concise way.  But like most of the people out there (at least the people I know), I'm tired of this circus.  I'd rather watch Circus of the Stars.  (Anyone remember that from the last century?) Or even better Battle of the Network Stars.  (Everyone had better hair than ANY of the candidates currently running.  And you know the current political arena is ALL about the hair.)

IF you haven't made of up your mind as to who you are going to vote for in the presidential race, watching the debate isn't really going to help you.  Doing your research on ALL the candidates. (Again, I point out that Gary Johnson and Jill Stein ARE on the ballot.)  Find the candidate that best fits your needs: stands for the issues that YOU value; and that you feel will be best to serve as President of the United States for the next four years.  Nothing else really matters.  (And don't give me the "if you're not voting Democrat or Republican you are throwing your vote away" crap.  The only thrown away vote is the one that ISN'T made.)  You've still got 6 weeks to rake through the muck and make a decision.  It's an important one; so do your homework before you place that vote.
