It’s time to crash the debates!!
The Presidential Debate Commission isn’t going to be allowing alternative candidates on stage, despite well-intended efforts to make it happen.
Fortunately, we now have the technology to put Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson, Stewart Alexander, and Gary Johnson (albeit for comic effect, where Progressives are concerned, at least) on the screen alongside the UniParty’s standards-bearers - answering the SAME questions, so the electorate can see that it REALLY DOES have options.
TiVo makes it possible! You know what I’m talking about:
*Pause* the broadcast, cue alternative candidate, insert their response!
Then, back to the Ass and Elephant show, and the cycle starts anew!
So let’s make it happen! Write DemocracyNOW!, where Jill and Rocky are already scheduled to appear on the date of the first debate, October 3! In the “Subject” drop-down, click “I have a comment or suggestion” and put SHOW US ALL OUR CHOICES in the subject line. Then paste the URL for this diary into your message!
Call C-SPAN: (877) 662-7726 and tell them you want alternative candidates TiVo’ed into the debates!
We do NOT have to accept what the Presidential Debate Commission deigns offer us! Please recommend, tweet, like and forward this post widely! And thanks!
