Let Gary Johnson Debate!

Gary Johnson is polling at 10.6% in the “battleground state” of Ohio. No wonder “the system” is so afraid of letting Gary Johnson debate…

Jesse Ventura knows about polling low and winning elections, and he says, “Let Gary Johnson Debate“! When Jesse ran for Governor in 1998, he was polling at 8%… UNTIL he appeared in televised debates – the rest is history.

In case you weren’t aware, the presidential debates used to be controlled and sponsored by the non-partisan League of Women Voters, until 1987 when they just had enough of the two major parties trying to dictate every facet of the debates.

Since that time, the debates have been controlled by the “Commission on Presidential Debates,” which has been headed since its inception by former chairs of the DNC and RNC.

The 15% polling threshold was created by the LWV in 1980 – not as a means of excluding candidates, the way the CPD uses it – but rather as a means of allowing third party candidate John B. Anderson to appear! Of course there was only one debate in 1980, between Reagan and Anderson, because Reagan and Carter were being such babies.

Listen to Gary Johnson, read about him and his positions on the issues, check out his following on Twitter and Facebook. His ideas are good and he had a proven and consistent track record. He deserves a spot in the presidential debates.

Then, if you are so inclined, sign the petition to get Gary Johnson included in the presidential debates.
