There are only three candidates on the ballot in all 50 states: Obama, Romney, and Gary Johnson. Having Johnson at the debates will allow us the chance to have real debates about the important issues that matter. Let’s help him get invited! “Per the discriminatory Commission on Presidential Debates run by Democrat and Republican bureaucrats, Governor Gary Johnson must receive 15% support in five national polls for him to be invited to the debates.”
Please consider calling the polls listed below and request that Gary Johnson be added to each poll. When you receive a phone call from the polling agency, make sure you participate and don’t hang up the phone before voting.

“The Commission on Presidential Debates was started by the Democratic and Republican parties as a way to keep third parties out of the debates, after the League of Women Voters balked at a secret 1988 deal between Bush 1 and Dukakis to keep third parties out the debates. (The League of Women Voters previously sponsored all the Presidential debates.) However, the CPD has openly published its criteria for inviting candidates to the debates as:
In addition to being Constitutionally eligible, candidates must appear on a sufficient number of state ballots to have a mathematical chance of winning a majority vote in the Electoral College, and have a level of support of at least 15% (fifteen percent) of the national electorate as determined by five selected national public opinion polling organizations, using the average of those organizations’ most recent publicly-reported results at the time of the determination.
Johnson is Constitutionally eligible and on the ballot in all 50 states, so basically spread the word about Gary Johnson and get people to answer “Gary Johnson” when asked who they plan to vote for. You can obviously vote for anyone when you get in the booth in November, but get Johnson to 15% in 5 national polls and he’ll get invited to the debates with Obama and Romney to bring up all kinds of topics that make them uncomfortable (the unpopular and failed drug war, indefinite detention of American citizens without charges, the Presidential “kill list”, corporate welfare, the absurd military budget, etc.)”
