Many of the debates being planned in preparation for the upcoming election will not present voters with all of the options that will be on their ballot Nov. 6. Several will include the Republican and Democratic candidates, but not the Libertarians. The Libertarian candidates have not only achieved ballot access at both the state and national level, but also offer the only solutions that will actually limit the power of government. Organizers need to consider whether the purpose of the debates is to present the voters with all of their choices, or simply showcase the candidates who support the status quo.
We can choose to include all candidates in the debates, and have an open and honest discussion about the possibilities of creating a limited government, or we can choose to only include the candidates from the two old parties, and simply have a discussion about which of those parties gets to be in charge of our currently unlimited government.
