Other candidates should be covered

Does anyone else find it odd that there are over 15 candidates running for the office of president and the American public is only told about two? I think that is horrible. We should be given televised debates using all of the people running for this office. This is not a Democratic country … we are being railed into thinking there are only two options to go with when in fact there are over 15. Does anyone know the name of the Libertarian candidate? How about the Green candidate or the Constitution’s candidate? Did you even know those parties existed?

We don’t know one thing about them unless we make a concerted effort to go look them up and find out. Shame on you America for leading us to believe something other than the truth … again.
