I think the basic premise of limiting the number of candidates to participate at any given debate is sound, but some things are unfair. For example 1)both republican and democrat candidates SHOULD NOT have the right to block candidates that meet the necessary requirements from participating. 2)15% support by each major poll is not reasonable when non-major party candidates do not get proper media exposure. 3)Candidates should HAVE NO RIGHT to know the questions in advance; I want an impromptu debate to see who knows what they are talking about.

Lastly we need to end or limit the first amendment in relation to campaign contributions. A vote tax should pay EQUALLY for all registered parties and their candidates that meet the necessary requirements.

I can't wait for this, I'm going to encourage as many people as I can to watch this.

I hope you all do the same!

Make sure you RSVP, I'm sure the more people that they have RSVP'd they could probably bring some sponsors on to alleviate some of their own campaign costs so they can use that money to actually campaign.

Democracy now hosted an expansion of the debates and allowed Jill Stien and Rocky Anderson to give their responses to the questions asked to Obama and Romney. They also invited Gary Johnson but he didn't attend.

This is a preview to two of the candidates who will debate on the 23rd.
