I don't see how anybody could reasonably hold to this opinion given the current political climate. Right now, congress has as little support as it's ever had in its history. There is political gridlock unlike anything we've ever had. We have movements on the right (Tea Party) and movements on the left (OWS) that are taking to the streets. And were in a financial crisis unlike anything we've ever faced - with more just around the corner given the way the deck is stacked. To top that off, libertarianism is on the rise and is proving to be an influential point of view.
Makes no sense to me that someone could argue that Gary Johnson has no place in the debates. Who has better justification than the nominee of the third largest political party in America? It blows my mind that people would actively seek to disenfranchise large swaths of people, and purposefully narrow the conversation in this country right now. "We're in a crisis! Why don't we ONLY listen to the parties that got us here." Pretty stupid.
