Here's the funny part - why don't you share with the class your thoughts on the what's and whys of your opinion on the Citizens United ruling so that we can all get a laugh on how conflicted and hypocritical you are.
The Citizens United ruling says that speech (in the form of monetary donations) should be less restricted than the law Congress passed. I disagree with it. I also agree that a speech forum put together by some media outlets can be restricted when it comes to primetime presidential debates a month before the election.
Not enough people care about Gary Johnson to allocate him any time in this debate. People have a real choice between Obama and Romney, and they care about only those two. Thus, the media outlets made the appropriate decision to only include those two.
I also don't think you should be on the stage on Wednesday. Or me. Is my speech being restricted? Yes, by media outlets. Neither I nor you, nor Gary Johnson, nor Romney or Obama, have a right to be on the stage.
