This election is not just a choice between Republican or Democrat. If it seems that way, it's just because other candidates are not being heard.
Ian Timberlake wrote "Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and vice presidential candidate Cheri Honkala were arrested Oct. 16, the night of the second presidential debate.
Complying peacefully, they were charged with disorderly conduct after they were refused entry into Hofstra University, the location of the debate
Stein and Honkala are the predominate Green Party candidates who show up on 85 percent of the nation’s ballot, including Iowa...."
Debate Co-moderator Larry King, said "“I think they deserve a voice,” (quoted here) "King said of the third-party candidates.“It’s obvious they’re not going to win, but in the Constitution it never says there’s a Democrat or a Republican Party. It never mntions a two-party system. We’ve had Federalist presidents, Whig presidents. … We’ve always had independent candidates. They deserve a voice and they haven’t had a voice in this campaign at all.”
