Third Party Presidential Candidates Arrested at “Debate”. You know, stuff like this really gets my blood boiling and re-affirms my interest in voting for good ol' Ralph in this upcoming election. We all know that the “debates” we've been watching on television aren't public, as they should be, but private events. Not only are the two major parties the only parties represented in these “debates,” but the Commission on Presidential Debates has gone so far as to arrest Michael Badnarik (Libertarian) and David Cobb (Green Party) as they tried to force their way into the debates.

being present should not be a problem, if they are disruptive that is something else. i mean they have a right to be heard too… the problem of course for the debates right now is that they are funded by people who would prefer no significant changes, funded by conservative organizations, ie businesses….. businesses are almost always conservative because change costs money.
