Why Isn't Gary Johnson On That Stage Tonight?

Why isn't Gary Johnson debating tonight with Romney and Obama? I mean his name is on the ballot in at least 48 states(he most likely will be on the other two, pending a court decision brought about by a bogus challenge by the Republicans claiming his signatures were forged). To me, if you can manage this much organization to be on the ballot in every state, that's enough qualification to share the same stage with the dirty Democrats and the ruthless Republicans. The fact that he is not on that stage tonight makes me question whether our political system even has the slightest bit of integrity left. This isn't about popularity. We have to all ask ourselves individually which of the two gentlemen on that stage tonight share the same ideas as ourselves. Two choices. Left or Right. But what if your choice is only a fork in the road and eventually the two roads meet back up again? I regret to say that what we will see tonight and what you will believe come election day will be that choice. Left or Right. This is our political system. We should welcome more options and allow more voices. I seek representation yet I have found none. Obama nor Romney will represent me....

I up voted too.

Though I am writing in Ron Paul, GJ had every right to be in that debate. It is pathetic that this system has become what it has.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Bad Real Reason

The Commission on Presidential Debates denotes that a Presidential Candidate must achieve 15% in the national polls and LP Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson is at 6%.


The commission can go f&ck themselves.

If a candidate is on the ballot in the majority of states, he/she should be heard.


"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul


I had to upvote this thread because it was downvoted. Wow!

There are people here that believe Johnson shouldn't be in the debate tonight? There is at least one person who believes so. This is very upsetting to me.

Love thy enemy.

Gary Johnson: 'system is rigged'

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson shut out of tonight's debate, claims 'system is rigged'
Published: Wednesday, October 03, 2012, 3:11 PM Updated: Wednesday, October 03, 2012, 4:32 PM

Johnson said today his campaign will provide live commentary during the debate via Twitter and other social media. But the former New Mexico governor made it clear that he's not happy to be shut out of tonight's event.

"Someone has to stand up and call this what it is—a rigged system designed entirely to protect and perpetuate the two-party duopoly," Johnson spokesman Ron Nielson told US News and World Report. "That someone will be the Johnson campaign."

No idea and

why should I care?

You should care because...

When more views are on the table, more ideas are considered.

Love thy enemy.

It's about time for the other 6 GJ plants to get on this thread

Where are they? Or is it 3 with multiple accounts?

Seen Johnsons ideas

and am not interested. The only ideas I am interested in are liberty, not statist. And statist "ideas" are all that are allowed at these debates. GJ is controlled opposition, not impressive. Where is the Daily Johnson so I can go there and post about Ron Paul?
