    Johnson suing for access to participate in debates ---

    The suit argues that since the president and vice president are paid a salary, the pursuit of the White House can be defined as commerce and thus be regulated by the Sherman Antitrust Act.

    I love this one, using the over-used "commerce clause" to stick it to the man ...

    Good for him. Anything to throw a monkey wrench into the two-party system is a plus, even if I don't like the person that's doing it (not that I have anything against Johnson, yet)

    Who is Gary Johnson?
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    "Better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer" - English jurist William Blackstone.
    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    I'll assume, from your repetition of this question, that it's not an Ayn Rand reference, but an attempt to demean a candidate for President by suggesting that he's so minor as to be unknown. To which I'll respond:

    Someone with principles. You wouldn't understand.

    Citing Gary Johnson's obscurity is not demeaning Gary Johnson. Gary Johnson has accomplished far more than Ron Paul has ever accomplished yet Gary Johnson remains a relative unknown outside of New Mexico.

    Once again, who is Gary Johnson.

    I hope Johnson get into the debates.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Clearly you know the answer, so your thrice-asked question can only be a poor attempt at being pithy. If you have something of substance to offer, do so.

    I hope so too, just so that other candidates that are not "invited" to debates are welcome to join them .. like "the rent is to damn high party" ... debates mean little unless one falls on his face ... but they can be entertaining, if other candidates are allowed to participate and put real issues on the lime-light.

    This video gave me chills. This video is very true and couldn't paint the truth better than it does.
