Watching these two make me wish the Libertarian and Green Party candidates were included. These 2 might as well be saying the same thing, just shaded a tad. Let the libertarian candidate remind folks of the founding fathers warning of foreign entanglements. Let the Green candidate argue the point of less energy usage. In the end neither of these two aren't going to solve our problems or change the basic path this country is headed down.

Heard Jill Stein was arrested trying to get into the last debate.

Seriously though, why don't they invite the Libertarian and Green party candidates?

Truth.


Corporate America (or media) doesn't want that to happen, and as long as money resides in politics, it'll continue to be that way.

One thing we can all agree on, is we can hardly wait for the political ads/etc to stop!

The two party system, and the amount of money in politics is what really hurts this nation.

To be honest, I don't see that changing any time soon. Unless there is a huge popular movement/uprising.

Why would these guys invite anyone that isn't an elephant or a donkey?

No doubt.

I lean Libertarian but they are unorganized and have done a poor job getting their base motivated to grow the party. The green party will never make it with the wackos they have leading the party.
I specifically said Green and Libertarian because they are on the Md ballot. if you are on the ballot in more than half the states you get a seat at the big kids table. Who cares how many people are at a debate, if I remember right the republican primaries started with more than just the top two. It is not a hard line to draw since getting on multiple state ballots show some level of organized support.

Parties have been around a long time, but it's how they have entrenched the money, and media, to prevent other groups from really being heard. I would have hoped the internet would have helped, but the internet side just can't organize more than a flash mob here or a flash mob there. Not really good enough to get foundations for change.

2 parties aren't bad in and of themselves, but 2 monolithic, unchanging heavyweights that control the keys to the kingdom are.

Exactly right.

From the Wiki
Quote:
In 1988, the League of Women Voters withdrew its sponsorship of the presidential debates after the George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis campaigns secretly agreed to a "memorandum of understanding" that would decide which candidates could participate in the debates, which individuals would be panelists (and therefore able to ask questions), and the height of the podiums. The League rejected the demands and released a statement saying that they were withdrawing support for the debates because "the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter."[8]
That's sums up what I felt about the debates even before they started.
