*Missouri Libertarian Party: Is Roy Blunt Really Afraid of Jonathan Dine?*
Carnahan, after very publicly expressing her desire to “debate all
candidates on the ballot” claims Blunt is to blame for the exclusion of
Libertarian US Senate Candidate Jonathan Dine
Kansas City Public Television (KCPT) has announced that its televised US
Senate debate slated for October 14th (the only televised debate scheduled)
will only include the Democrat and Republican candidates, and not the
Libertarian candidate Jonathan Dine or the Constitution Party candidate.
Ms. Carnahan continues to assert that she hopes that all four candidates
will be included and claims Roy Blunt is the problem. The Blunt campaign,
however, claims that both campaigns agreed to the exclusionary criteria set
up by KCPT.
“Clearly, at least one of the two campaigns is lying,” observed Dr. Cisse
Spragins, Missouri LP chair. “Not that I find that particularly surprising.
It does seem laughable, however, that the consummate Washington insider, and
the member of the Missouri political aristocracy, both who have raised
millions of dollars, find a couple of third party candidates threatening,”
Spragins added. “What is regrettable is that a Libertarian presence in the
debate would not only educate voters on a truly different choice, but would
also have the effect of focusing the debate on actual issues. I guess that's
what they're afraid of. As it stands, we can likely expect just more of the
mud-slinging we've all been seeing in those endless TV commercials. And I
have to agree with most of them – both Blunt and Carnahan are bad news for
Voters who are Fed Up! with bailouts, stimulus plans that only stimulate
bigger government, government takeover of health care, rising unemployment,
never-ending foreign wars, and a big brother police state will find common
ground with the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party is America's third
largest political party and has been fighting for smaller government since
1971. The Missouri Libertarian Party has been a recognized party in the
State, with continuous ballot access since 1992. For further information
