Let Johnson and Stein debate
The Commission on Presidential Debates is controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties for the purpose of dictating all aspects of the debate process.
The commission’s arbitrary requirement that participants score 15 percent in polls that are biased against third party candidates creates an unreasonable barrier that is against the public interest.
Americans deserve more open debates. The public must demand that the commission’s requirement be dramatically lowered to either 5 percent or 1 percent, or eliminated altogether. This would allow the Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson and the Green Party candidate Jill Stein participate in the presidential debates.
