I really think they should because if we had they debate with the other candidates then we will know their views and I think it is a good that they put out advertisements and commercials about them as well. Because if Romney and Obama put out commercials about the third party candidates because if Romney and Obama say something negative about them, we would look more into them and if people didn't want to vote for either Obama or Romney then we could vote for our favorite third party candidate.

3rd party candidates should have a role in the debates if they are on the ballot in at least 47 states. The majority of American people are calling for change in laws, equalities and civil liberties. Adding another candidate to the debates would allow them to express their views. I mean if they are on the ballot, the voters should hear him. Enough of the two party debates already, lets have some democracy please! Gary Johnson is on all 50 states ballots (with 3 in court but the GOP is just wasting their time, the signatures were handed in) and I would like to hear what he has to offer during the debates. We know what Obama has to offer, we've seen Romney more than enough to hear him flip flop and avoid questions, lets hear someone else thats on the ballot!
