I don’t usually post about politics, because I usually don’t talk or even think about politics. But this time around, I’ve realized some things, and noticed that politics mean a great deal to some of my friends. So here’s some things.
At the official Presidential debates, only the Republican and Democrat candidates can make an appearance. The others are not allowed anywhere near the location. Yesterday a couple decided to try. Badnarik and Cobb (Libertarian and Green respectively) were arrested trying to appear at the presidential debates. Why? Because the debates are not “official”. They’re not run by the government. They run by a private organization, and that organization has the right to say “this is private property, and persons a-z are not allowed”. Why is this not being changed? Because it is to the advantage of both major parties to prevent the others from being there.
This is wrong, and should be changed. Perhaps these arrests will help people understand that.
Those things together have pretty much helped me decide to vote third party.
