    "IN THE DEBATES" OR "OUT OF THE ELECTION"
    ============================================

    CNN under date line of October 25, 2012 reports that Presidential candidates Johnson of the Libertarian party and Goode of the Constitution party, though barred from participating in the just completed Presidential debates,
    could have an impact on the outcome of the election by siphoning votes from Romney and perhaps Obama in some of the battle ground states. Worthy of note, but not mentioned, the presidential candidates of two other parties were handcuffed to their chairs for several hours to prevent their being present at the debates.

    Given their barring by the Republican and the Democrat parties,
    America's third parties, if having backbone worthy of being called parties,
    should take no action that condones their having been blocked from the debates,
    and thus
    their supporters, if disbelievers in the platforms and in the candidates of the two major parties,
    should express such disbelief by not voting for any presidential candidate,
    thus----hopefully----sending a message that if they are not "in the debates" they are "out of the elections."

    They could very well have an impact. If 1/3 of the Nader voters in NH(~7,500) had voted for Gore instead, he would have been president.
