I can't think of a comment for that kind of campaigning that won't get me a 24 hr. vacation!
Sorry opinyawn. This is not a response to your comment..
I'm having issues with my forum app (os6) and a "quoted" reply seems to be the only way to write a good amount of text....... Anyways...
Did anybody hear the news about Gary Johnson?
He's making an attempt to through a lawsuit to participate in the debate.
"The suit argues that, because the title of president is a salaried position, it can be defined as commerce and thus can be regulated by the Sherman Antitrust Act."
"Since 1987, the organization and overseeing of the arguments is masterminded by the Commission on Presidential Debates, a group that was jointly formed by the Democratic and Republican parties. According to the rules they have put in place, a candidate must show that they've polled favorable by at least 15 percent of Americans in any five major election questionnaires, a feat that Gov. Johnson has failed to do during his run for the White House. Johnson has, however, made a splash with voters dissatisfied by the GOP and Democratic candidates, and believes he has a viable chance at the November election. As of Friday, a Reason-Rupe poll had Gov. Johnson as the favorite among 6 percent of likely voters."
I believe that if a candidate is on the ballot then they should not be excluded from debating with the rest of the candidates... The media is 1 of the many reasons why most have not heard of the other 2 candidates on the ballot this November.
The other candidate is the green parties Jill Stein, in case some of you are wondering. http://www.jillstein.org/
