which native is this referring to? you think a greek might belong to a tribe here ?? and you claimed your IQ was that high .......
and not that it can really drag down the level of conversation in CE, but it seems the wall that kept out sub-100 count posters has been breeched
Native born. I don't buy that "only First Nations are Native crap." If you were born here you're a native.
When even media as CNN http://indy100.independent.co.uk/article/cnn-on-donald-trump-adolf-hitler-was-elected-too--byicYkdNqe
perpetuates the same ad hominem of high school politics as "political analysis" you know what a joke politics/ media in america are. The ironic thing is hillary mentor and also Obama was Robert Byrd a KKK clan member ,hillary even said we lost a mentor when he died.

You directed that question at wojt, so you'll have to forgive me for not answering it the first time around.
As for me, can't say I've ever put much thought into the rules about third party involvement in such things. Obviously there has to be some thresholds of support or you'd have dozens of nitwits who just wanted attention. Seems like if any third party (eg, Perot) got enough support from the public, the hosts of the debates would include them just out of self interest. Does Johnson meet a high enough threshold to warrant consideration? No idea.
50 state + DC ballot access and polling double digits in multiple polls (Monmouth, FOXNews) despite essentially no media coverage seems to indicate a threshold of support.
Perot was a media phenomenon like Trump from the day he announced in the '92 cycle. And despite having no electoral experience he pulled a pretty good number while running against an establishment incumbent president and a charismatic challenger with a pretty unified party behind him. Johnson's more trustworthy, more experienced, and certainly less hated than Trump and Hillary combined, and as I said he's polling in double digits - in the Monmouth poll only about a quarter of voters knew enough about him to form an opinion, yet he polled 13%. That means that half the people who know about him prefer him. In a three way race with an educated electorate that means he's not just competitive, it means he wins.
I think it's pretty clear this is not what we have here. And while I sympathize with your plight, I just don't see what forcing this view can achieve. It's going to take time to gain any traction, and I'm not sure anybody here disagrees in principle but rather most seem to acknowledge the impracticality. I think if a third party/libertarians can get sizeable representation in the Congress first, that will open up opportunities for future presidential bids. And I don't mean just a handful in some states.
