Unless third parties show that they are viable, they shouldn't be allowed in. Their complaint on the issue is pointless.


Perot had more than just money. He actually had an appealing message to go along with that money.


Well, yeah, Paul did get screwed in the RNC, no doubt about that.


Because if they don't become a more prominent part of the GOP, they are forever doomed to obscurity. Third parties don't win. Period.
1. explain this.

The Commission is headed by Frank Fahrenkopf, a former head of the Republican National Committee, and former White House press secretary Michael D. McCurry.

2. explain this one as well.

Quote:
At a 1987 press conference announcing the commission's creation, Fahrenkopf said that the commission was not likely to include third-party candidates in debates, and Paul G. Kirk, Democratic national chairman, said he personally believed they should be excluded from the debates.

3. Well. Gary Johnson had a appealing message. Yet, no money.

4. We agree on something. About time.

5. I don't think you answered my question. Do you think Rand Paul or any libertarian-Republican will get the nomination in 2016 or 2020? I personally see the GOP having a identity crisis. And I don't see the Liberty movement making any big noise. I mean, have we had a libertarian President?

And why not...

During the last week of September, 2012, three sponsors withdrew their sponsorship of the 2012 debates for not including third parties: BBH New York, YWCA USA and Philips Electronics
