- The Commission on Presidential Debates which runs our debates is itself run by the two major parties.
- All other parties and candidates are excluded from the debates. The importance of this cannot be overstated! Jesse Ventura won his race for governor ONLY because he was admitted to its debate. Before that debate he was polling only a few percent. People need to see and hear their candidates!
- The questions are secretly given to the establishment’s candidate beforehand. (at least with Hillary Clinton in 2016 we learned about it)
- This also means, the questions don’t actually come from concerned citizens. They are scripted and staged by the establishment which runs the whole show.
Conclusion: We the people must organize our own debates or hope and go for debates or in depth interviews organized on the side like they eventually were this year (2016) in response to the raised public interest by Democracy Now, RT America, TYT, and PBS’ Tavis Smiley. (these links are pointing to the actual debates and interviews)
