Video of yesterday’s Libertarian presidential debate

Yesterday, the Libertarian Party of North Carolina hosted a presidential debate over Google Hangouts. Gary Johnson, John McAfee, Austin Petersen, Darryl W. Perry, Steve Kerbel and Jack Robinson participated.

Robinson used his opening statement to attack his fellow candidates. Robinson said:

“There are only two credible candidates in this race, Gary Johnson and me.”
“I’m angry over my opponents who tarnish the credibility of this party.”
“We have a drug kingpin, a businessman under investigation for securities fraud, a hobo anarchist, another who wants public hangings in front of children in order to induce fear and forced compliance, and finally Austin Petersen, SIN, a cowardly liar who having been soundly beaten by my son at the Georgia debate, misled his followers by editing him out of the video. As a businessman and his opponent, I find him immature, surely a failure in all he has attempted, believes cute is more important than competence, has irresponsible policies and who is by his own admission a razzling, dazzling liar.”

The debate, however, featured almost no personal attacks besides Robinson’s. The video of the debate lasts for an hour and forty-three minutes.
