Twelve 2016 Libertarian Party presidential candidates participated in IPR’s second-ever presidential candidates questionnaire. The candidates were asked seven serious questions and three “fun” questions. At IPR, responses to only two of the fun questions were published. The third is published here as an exclusive to The Saturnalian.
Here’s how the candidates reacted:
I couldn’t bring myself to watch the entire video. The parts I watched were over the top and concerning…
I find this video unprofessional. You can not stay focused if you are moving all around – you will lose the peoples attention and what you are talking about. To much non-important information can take away from your speech. There is no need to be arrogant – this will turn people off.
Sorry not watch the video, I am busy writing you lol.
Keenan Dunham of South Carolina (website): No response.
It is a politician speaking. Doesn’t matter what he says, really. He is a politician.
Donald Eugene Lowe of Texas (website): No response.
John McAfee of Tennessee (website):
I have seen this before, so many things I could say. I admire his passion but, I feel like he highlights what is wrong with higher education he has 2 bachelor degrees, 2 master degrees including one in communications but can’t manage to put together a 5 minute coherent speech…
He’s passionate about something
Psychologists should determine if he needs to be committed,and have a guardian appointed
Though a compassionate candidate he lost persuasiveness through demeanor. Correct on many discussion points that government is a cesspool but was one of the elected representatives that should be held responsible- Atlas shrugged. His discussion centered on economics, which is the area usually involved in corruption and incompetence but as usual offered no solutions- Atlas shrugged. As with all politicians including our own, the emphasis is forever on the problem with no solution ever offered – Atlas shrugged again. My reaction is this- these problems are real, they are caused by bad policies made by bad politicians with greed and self interest in mind; and I am the only candidate that will say “how” we will address these problems with thoughtful socio-economic solutions that are removed from government corruption, greed and graft.
