Bravo... And not to be a damper on my communal buds at the Green Party -- but I think the debate should be open to any party that QUALIFIES on all 50 state ballots (or at enough to get an electoral win).. Great chance that Gary Johnson will do that. Poor chance that Jill Stein will. We have worked with the Greens in the past to make ballot access less of a minefield.. Which is my suggestion... STOP RESTRICTING BALLOT ACCESS with ridiculous hurdles. It takes a dozen COURT challenges and $MILLs of dollars to get 50 state access. You want LESS MONEY in politics?? MAKE IT AFFORDABLE... As the Rep candidates found out in Virginia and other states, EVEN when you THINK you are clearly on the ballot, you may have missed a deadline or violated some obscure law like using out of state petitioners to collect signatures or not returning signatures from the field in less than 48 hours.. What's up with that? CLEARLY obstacles that are put there to maintain a duopoly in American politics..
