By Dark Politricks
This is the full third party Presidential debate which was shown last night on Russia Today last night. Isn't it funny how it takes a Russian TV station to provide some kind of balance to the establishment stranglehold on American politics?
As Mitt Romney and President Obama both competed for the prize of Israels best friend in their last debate. Last night the third party Presidential candidates discussed real issues and many that haven't even been touched in the previous Presidential debates.
The candidates debating were Presidential candidates Jill Stein of the Green Party, Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party, Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party and Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.
