No, it's not a good reason at all. These debates are nothing more than two candidates running to the center. It's not even an actual debate. It's just two people bloviating for the bleating masses who aren't allowed to be presented with actual choices or variety in thoughts.

Thanks but that doesn't help. I'm interested in seeing the Libertarian candidate interact with the other candidates and hearing those candidates responses.

"Gary Johnson will be participating in a debate on October 23rd hosted by Free and Equal Elections Foundation. Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Constitution Party nominee Virgil Goode and Justice Party nominee Rocky Anderson will join Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson in this debate. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney have declined to participate in this debate."

Same article.

Elections are popularity contests. This debate is for people with a chance at winning.

Yes, it's a very good reason. The real choices for the election are Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Only one of them will win. No third person will win, so Americans want to focus on which of the two candidates is better, and not on what a third person's irrelevant opinion is.

Looks like a fruit and nut convention. What is your purpose for posting this?

*edit* I think I see now. By "other canddiates" I meant the R & D candidates. Sorry I was unclear.

So start something called "Dickhead's super awesome candidate interaction festival," invite everyone, and see who shows up.

What if Romney and obama's responses to the Libertarian candidate are helpful to some on the fence between the two in deciding for whom to cast their vote?

And I didn't get invited to the debate either. And I'm only a few points behind Gary Johnson in the polls.

I don't doubt you find yourself behind Johnsons and polls with great frequency.

Apparently people who hold Libertarian views aren't Americans.

What's the point of getting ballot access in all 50 states if we're not even allowed to participate in the national dialogue?

You have a small, regressive mind. No surprise you're rowing the same boat as Cosmo.
