In what can only be described as an absolute smack in the face of this once free country, Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein and her running mate have been arrested while attempting to gain access to tonight’s debate.
Stein was attempting to gain access and protesting not just her parties exclusion from the debates but the fact that NO third party,including Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, is being allowed inside the “corporate” debate.
“Green Party candidate Jill Stein and her running mate Cheri Honkala appeared to be arrested early Tuesday evening during a protest outside the main gates of Hofstra University, where President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney are scheduled to have their second presidential debate.
Stein and Honkala were protesting the exclusion of all but the two major political parties from participating in the debate,” reported Patrick Johnson.
According to the Long Island Report, just before her arrest Stein had this to say:
“If you have done the work to get on the ballot, if you are on the ballot and could actually win the electoral college by being on the ballot in enough states, then you deserve to be in the election and you deserve to be heard.”
“The American people deserve to hear choices which are not bought and paid for by multinational corporations and Wall Street. This is why we are not hearing the critical issues in this debate.”
We now find ourselves in a world literally ruled by banking interests and their corporate cronies in the controlled media who have done everything in their power to pretend that the American people have no other choice than to vote for Obama or Romney.
