Third-party candidates should participate in the debates

August 24, 2012

Why is it that the only party candidates that get into the presidential debates are Republicans and Democrats? Why not let a couple of the other parties' candidates participate as well?

I would like to see the Green and Libertarian parties in the presidential debates this year and every election year afterward. That way the American people would have a better view of who is running and what they are proposing to do.
