Ron Paul wins GOP nomination-Agrees to only attend debates with top 5 political partiesSubmitted by Marcus Cicero on Sat, 05/26/2012 - 04:01
Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution (later removed by the 12th Amendment.) " then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President." I know these were for special circumstances but it seems that ballot access is an issue that I read about in here often. Obama would have to attend if he didn't want to look bad. These parties are currently if I'm not mistaken the Republican, Democrat, Green, Constitution, and Libertarian. As parties grow and shrink this would obviously change. If we could start a precedence it may catch for future elections. This would also allow more exposure to a wide variety of representation at the local level as what happens at the top happens at the bottom. Candidates that normally would not get a look are now in the public view and increased focus would allow for a wider representation at all levels.
