Libertarians Ron Paul & Doug Casey vs. Conservatives Larry Abraham & Dinesh D'Souza

A summary of the points made during the rebuttal:

Larry Abraham

* Who started this conflict? Perhaps it was at the Battle of Tours, a hangover from the Battle of La Ponto, or the British and the French screwing up the Arabs at the end of WWI. Who knows, but 911 was much more than a criminal act.
* We didn't start it.
* Have you ever been hated and wanted dead just for who you are? Every Jew in Israel knows that feeling. Everyday there's someone over there thinking, "how can we kill those people, they deserve to die, they're worse than pigs." That hatred is not only directed at Israel but also the American people.
* Doug has a lot of contempt for this country, but the U.S. is not deserving of contempt. We've made mistakes, sure. But it's not conservatives who are responsible for those mistakes.
* I have a son in the Marine Corp. Does that make me a fool? Does that make my sons just worthless battle cannon fodder? I don't think so.
* If Doug is right and this country is as contemptuous as he says it is, then this debate is a prelude to chaos, confusion, and genocide.

Doug Casey

* I've got no problem with Israel or the Jews, I just don't want a dog in that fight.
* The state of Israel stole the land that now makes up it's borders from the residents that previously lived there.
* Before the creation of the state of Israel the Muslims and Christians living in the middle east didn't hate the Jews and they all got along fine.
* It's the creation of a state that's the problem where the people who are not controlling the state are disenfranchised.
* It's a big problem, but it's not our problem to solve, they have to work it out for themselves.
* Larry said I have contempt for the country. No! I said I have contempt for the government.
* If you want to kill someone badly enough, you should do it yourself, not get control of a government to do it for you and force others to pay for that action.
